Sunday I was dog-tired from a fabulous day at the beach with my hubbie and littles. The last thing I wanted to do is go to the grocery store - sans hubbie. He was at work. But with a little planning, I was able to get in and out of the grocery store quickly. You can do it too! This is what I did to make my life easier.
1. I prepped my grocery list on Thursday night by matching my coupons to the sales ad. I knew that I wouldn't be home on Friday night so I did this ahead of time.
2. I checked my favorite blogs to make sure I didn't miss any great deals.
3. I went to Safeway's website and created my shopping list using their weekly ad. Their site is soooo easy to use. :) All you do is click the items you want to ad and print.
4. The most important thing of all when shopping with children. I promised them a treat if they were good!
Here are a couple of the great deals I was able to snag....

On this trip, I received $157.40 worth of groceries for $46.99! That is a savings of 70%! Plus I received a coupon for $2 OYNO, a free gallon of milk OYNO and mailed away for a $6 rebate. Not too bad for a Sunday afternoon!
