From the Grocery List to the Dinner Table

This is what I bought for groceries last week:

I bought this case of blueberries for $24.99 at our local grocery store (not where I do most of my shopping). Last year I bought a case for $17.99, so the price has gone up quite a bit. I froze most of them to use through the fall/winter. In the long run it's a money saver as I saw frozen blueberries in the grocery store were over $4 each.

For my regular shopping, I saved 34% or $121.90 buy shopping the sales and using coupons.
