What I'm Buying - Smiths 6/29

Wednesday, June 29, 2011
I was able to make it to the store on the first day of the sale this week. I seem to be a bit off my game though recently. The last few grocery trips have been significantly more expensive than usual, and I feel like I'm losing my coupon mojo...I don't know whether it's the rising food prices, lower coupon values, change in shopping behavior, or a combination of all of these plus other stuff.

If you're out and about, and happen to see my coupon mojo running around somewhere, would you please send it home? Thanks! :)
