Here is my shopping trip this week. I went to Sprouts and spent most of my money shopping the awesome Buy One, Get One Free sale! We have a lot of chicken in the freezer so there isn’t much meat here. I really wanted to take advantage of the Cascadian Farms Cereal deal.. my kids love the cereal and I pay around $4 per box at Winco when it’s not on sale. I’m excited that this sale goes through 3/11– so I can head in next week for more cereal.

There are a couple of things that I love about Winco..

1. Their Bulk Section

Did you do any shopping today?! I was pretty excited about the Hefty Trash Bag deal– I wanted to get the larger count but I was reminded by my husband that he doesn’t like the “flaps”. :) Which apparently, is the only type they have in the 85 ct. Go figure. ;)
