Share Your Savings Saturday - Link Up!


So I've been tossing around some ideas for a new name for my savings that I share with you each week. First it was just going to be boring ole "My Weekly Grocery Savings." But then, I came up with a different idea! I usually highlight a reader's savings once a week, and lately I have been getting so many awesome readers sending me e-mails that I can barely choose from them all!

I will still be highlighting readers savings from time to time, so keep those e-mails coming! But for the rest of you, I thought it would be fun for everybody to have a chance to link up to your savings each week!

I know many of you have personal blogs and even frugal/money-saving blogs as well. So if you have a blog, please link up at the bottom of this post so that everybody can click over and see your savings. If you don't have a blog, how about just leaving a comment and sharing in that way? Thanks for participating! I can't wait to see everyone's savings each week.

Enough rambling on my part. Here's what I bought at Publix this week (Pictured above. My Aunt came to visit and was quite excited about all the coupon action. She asked to be in the pic, so I let her. He He):


10 Weight Watchers Smart Ones entrees
2 Weight Watchers Smart Ones desserts
3 boxes Kashi cereal
2 packs Frusion smoothies
1 box Kashi Go Lean bars
2 packages Back To Nature granola
6 packs Yo-Plus yogurt
2 canisters Emerald Nuts
2 Farmhouse Originals dressing
1 package strawberries
2 package mushrooms
1 package mixed raw veggies
1 bunch green onions
1 cucumber
1 half gallon Almond Breeze milk
1 garlic bulb
1 onion
1 container sour cream
1 package dry black beans
1 bottle Raspberry Vinegar
4 Yoplait Greek yogurts
2 packages Arnold multigrain sandwich thins
1 package Sparkle paper towels (not pictured, OOPS!)

I also spent $5.11 (and saved $31.45) at CVS this week. You can go here to see the details of what I bought.

All together, I was a little over this week and spent $56.23! We'll see what next week holds...
