I am back to Meal Planning after a two-week break from my blog!

Because of the 4th of July holiday coming up, Safeway was offering a ton of "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" deals as well as $25 worth of coupons in their weekly ad.  Lucky for me, I was able to take advantage of nearly $20 of those coupons (I only used the coupons for things I had already planned to purchase!), wahoo!  Although I didn't necessarily need crackers, sliced American cheese, or crushed pineapple, they were on a deep discount so, I stocked up for future use.  Because of a recent trip to Costco to replenish my freezer and my pantry, I mostly just needed our weekly produce and lunch-making foods so, I came in way under budget this week!
