Whoa! I already know what you are thinking. She is WAY over budget this week. Yep, I sure am... by $27. However, in my defense I must tell you that the sales are typically weaker as we get closer to the end of the year. So, I am taking every opportunity I can to stockpile a little bit more while I have the chance. Almost everything I bought via triple coupons went into my stockpile and I am really trying to get stocked back up on sodas for my hubby. I let my supply run out this last time. Oops! I would much rather go over budget and pay around $2.50 a 12-pack rather than skimp on budget now and end up paying full price ($5 or more) later. Besides, September is National coupon month! Lots of deals to be had for everyone. :)

Leave a comment and tell me about any good deals you found this week.
