Now that Fritz can eat anything, grocery shopping has gotten much easier. The big kids aren’t feeling deprived anymore (I think a lot of Ani’s jealousy toward Fritz stemmed from dietary restrictions) and we can use coupons and shop sales and get cheap groceries. That makes grocery shopping a lot more fun.
Safeway has been running a promotion where if you buy 20 items from a selection of items you get an instant $20 off your bill. Combining that promotion and their regular weekly sales with coupons produces big savings. Last night we went to Safeway and got $100 worth of food. We spent $21. We saved 79%. Not bad at all (and tons of fun to do!).
