    If you swap out the Spaghetti, Tortillas (I know, you returned them) and Ramen Noodles for WHOLE GRAINS you’ll be more full and healthier. Try Buckwheat, rolled oats, wild rice, or Quinoa.

      I only have one pack of Ramen Noodle left… and almost done with the pasta noodle also. I will start looking at some of the items you mentioned next time I go grocery shopping. Thanks.

    box of store brand mac & cheese, can of store brand tuna: make the mac & cheese, mix in the tuna. Sounds gross, but actually tastes okay. Got me through many a long wait before the next check from mom and dad showed up. If you have frozen peas, throw some of them in the mix too.

    You may know about this site already but you can go to http://www.shortcuts.com to load coupons directly to a shopping card for extra savings without the clipping. Also, http://www.pgesaver.com provides the same service. Good luck!

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I already had spent all the allocated budget. I think I am good for now, but I definitely learned how to use coupons and take advantage of discounts.
