Here's what I bought this week. I got $183 in groceries for $63 and a savings of 65%!
WALGREENS & CVS: ($25.03) At CVS I bought Dr. Pepper (2.25) & paper towels (3.99). At Walgreens I bought trash bags (4.44), chicken broth (0.50), pudding (0.25), tomato sauce (0.19), soap (0.99), toilet paper (2.99), Excedrin (MM).
KROGER: ($20.11) Here I bought salad mix (FREE), pizzas (1.19), buns (1.00), bread (0.78), vitamins (3.94), canned veggies (0.50), nut clusters (0.72), mangos (1.00), dip (0.49), and apples. I am looking at my receipt in shock because the cameo apples were 0.88 lb and I was charged for ambrosia at 2.29 lb! YIKES. I didn't catch it at the time because my total was correct. I now realize that my total was right because they entered my salad Q wrong and I ended up getting both bags FREE. I guess we'll call this one a wash. :)
PUBLIX & FOOD LION: ($18.02) At Publix I bought crescents (0.62), frozen veggies (FREE), waffles (1.39), tomato sauce (MM), soup (0.50), veggies (0.15), gelatin (MM), Doritos (2.00), strawberries (1.67), cooking spray (0.75). I also had a $5 off $30 coupon from a home mailer. At Food Lion I bought pizza (1.00), OJ (1.00), banana (0.45 lb), ground beef (1.39 lb), milk (1.99), foil (1.13).
Regular Price: $182.44
Savings: $119.31 or 65%
Actual Cost: $63.16
Well, it finally happened. I spent up some of my excess from being under budget this year. This week there just happened to be plenty of deals on paper products so I restocked on paper towels, toilet paper & trash bags. Hubby has also managed to blow through amazing amounts of soda so I had to replenish that supply as well. Also, we are having a little friendly competition within my MOPS organization to see which group can bring in the most items for the food pantry so I got several items for that too. Either way, I am still on track for the yearly budget. I'm not so happy with my savings percentage but even a coupon queen can have an off week. Work has been totally insane + my wee one was sick yesterday so, I'll admit, I wasn't as focused and prepared as I like to be. There's always next week, right? Speaking of next week, there are rumors of a Cart Buster Promo at Kroger.
How did you do this week? Leave me a comment below. Maybe it will help inspire me to get back on track next week.
