Here's my weekly shopping list in which I use the grocery ads and coupons to feed my family of 6 for under $60 each week. To learn more about how you can save money at the grocery store read my Grocery Shopping 101 series of posts. This list is specific to Puget Sound area stores and sales.

This weeks total is $72.60 out of pocket but I got back a $10 coupon from Alby's and will receive a $10 rebate from SCJohnson. I am hoping for double coupons over the weekend from Albertson's for $6 more savings there. AND I didn't spend all my grocery money last week--rollover!

This is what we are going to have on the menu using the groceries I purchased this week and the stockpile in my pantry and freezer from previous weeks and months of $60 shopping lists. Remember that one of my New Year's goals is to serve a meatless meal once a week, and we have three theme nights per week: Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and Breakfast for dinner on Sundays.

Thursday-Macaroni and Cheese, Broccoli, fruit
Friday-Pizza night! Pepperoni, Seafood (not together)
Saturday-Roast Chicken, Yams, Salad, fresh baked artisan bread
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner! Crepes
Monday-Chicken & Dumplings, salad
Tuesday-Taco Night! enchiladas
Wednesday-Pork Chops, Scalloped Potatoes, Beans, salad
