  1. I was just wondering how many full meals can you make with what you bought for $59.63? I have been looking for ways to save but I also have a family of 8 to feed complete meals for. Do you have any tips for me to be able to save on our grocery bill

  2. I have a question,I know you listed the items you purchased at both stores,but other than the free after coupon items,you didn’t list which of the other items were purchsesd with a coupon.Would you be able to do that to show a better perspective of which items you saved money on? Thank you.Have a great day!
