My Weekly Grocery Savings -- The New Budget!
Here is what I bought at Publix this week (pictured above):
4 packs Frusion Smoothies (my hubby is obsessed)
1 gallon milk
2 boxes Ritz Munchables
4 packages Kraft shredded cheese
2 boxes Orville popcorn
2 Aunt Jemima syrups
2 boxes Weight Watchers ice cream bars
2 packages Birds Eye Steamfresh veggies
1 package almonds
1 packages walnuts
2 boxes Quaker True Delights bars
2 boxes Quaker oatmeal
2 boxes Cheez-Its
2 jars Bertolli pasta sauce
4 Yoplait Greek yogurts
1 bag potatoes (5 lbs)
4 plum tomatoes
1 bag Florida oranges
2 bags Dole lettuce
1 bottle white wine vinegar
4 Knox gelatins
1 bunch bananas
1 can black olives
2 bottles Pert Plus shampoo
1 bunch green onions
1 container feta cheese
1 package broccoli florets
2 Zone Perfect bars
1 EAS bar
1 package dry black beans
1 package organic tempeh (yay! They actually had it!)
1 bunch asparagus
1 jalapeno pepper
1 package whole wheat pasta (can you believe it? I had to pay full price - out of pasta!!!)
Wow! I will tell you one thing - $15 more a week makes a HUGE difference!!! It was nice to be able to pick up lots of fresh veggies and fruits with no guilt about budget. I was able to get everything I wanted for all my meals, lots of snacks, plenty of fruit, and more!
I also did the Kellogg's cereal sale last weekend (pictured below). I only paid $5.75 for all 5 cereal boxes! My savings was $14.80!
So here are my combined totals between the 2 trips:
Total Before Sales and Coupons: $178.66
Total saved from sales: $57.69
Manufacturer coupons used: $43.95
Store/Competitor coupons used: $18.74
Total amount saved: $120.38
Total paid after all sales and coupons: $58.28
I went a little over this week, but that's okay since I was under budget last week! I haven't made it to CVS yet, but I might go make a quick trip today. We'll see. I'll update you about it if I end up going!
1st Week: $39.71
2nd Week: $58.28
Total spent for month of March so far: $97.99
Total savings for month of March so far: $217.13
