I love helping others learn how to shop smart and save. Grocery Smarts is hard for me to not be excited about and I LOVE when I hear from those of you out there who are doing such a great job. Yesterday when I was checking my e-mail I noticed this e-mail from Judy:

So to those of you doing grocerysmarts and to those of you that have not jumped on the bandwagon I wanted to share the good sale I got last week. These items will be on sale again in about 12 weeks if you did not get the good deals this time. I shopped three stores this week because there was a few items at each store I could not pass up. I got it all done in about 1 1/2 hours including drive time and I did not do it all in one night. I only bought dressing at vons and I got dressing, miracle whip, pasta sauce and great produce deals at smiths. Most of my shopping was done at Albertson's and I was really excited to get the london broil for 1.99 a lb. I marinated and grilled up a pound of it and served it over salad. My kids loved it and devoured the whole thing! I only got a few pieces. My mom cut it into cubes, marinated it and made shishkebobs. They were a huge hit at our memorial day bbq. I went back Tuesday night and bought 9 more pounds to freeze and enjoy all summer long. So here are some of the items I purchased and what I paid for them. I also added totals at the bottom.Judy
