Super Savings Saturday (a day late)

Crystal did not do Super Savings Saturday again this week, because of Christmas. And I took a couple of days off from blogging. So, this is my Super Savings Saturday...it's just on Sunday night instead of Saturday morning!

It wasn't a great sale week, and I didn't plan any meals (because of the Christmas activities going on all week). I pretty much just grabbed the absolute best deals I saw...

Here is what I bought at Publix last week:

2 boxes Reese's Puffs cereal (my hubby's guilty pleasure)
2 packages Ocean Spray craisins
1 bag gold potatoes (5 lb bag)
10 tangerines
1 gallon milk
2 packages Kraft shredded cheese
2 boxes Orville Redenbacher popcorn
2 boxes Duncan Hines cake mix
2 boxes (4 sticks in each) I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
4 boxes Muellers Pasta
1 Breakstone sour cream (16 oz)
5 sweet potatoes
1 lb snow crab legs
2 packages Philadelphia cream cheese
4 cans Swanson vegetable broth
4 cans Del Monte diced tomatoes
4 cans Del Monte corn
1 water (2.5 gallons)

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $94.09
Total saved from sales: $44.07
Manufacturer coupons used: $14.55
Store/Competitor coupons used: $8.50
Total amount saved: $67.12
Total paid after all sales and coupons: $26.97

*I didn't make it to CVS this week. I took a break from couponing and bargain hunting. It was nice! So this Publix trip is the only money I spent on groceries this week.

December Totals:

1st week: $36.15
2nd week: $29.73
3rd week: $27.86
4th week: $26.97

Total spent for month of December so far: $120.71
Total savings for month of December so far: $413.61

We're under budget for the week and the month so far! =)

You did good. I miss it. I haven't been to publix in 3 or 4 weeks. We've being eating from our stock I've built from the last few months. The freezer is getting low again so it's about time to get back into the action!
