Wal-Mart - $16.84
Kroger I - $18.29 They have some very good deals this week! The cereal was all free after doubled coupon! This is the first time since I've been married that I bought a turkey. !Gasp! I am not the type of person to bake a turkey for our supper but Monica got me motivated to bake it and pick it all off the bones then can it. I have the turkey thawing right now and I plan to bake it on Monday. Stay tuned for more on that next week.
Kroger II - $2.08 This is my second shopping trip to Kroger. Kind of a weird combination cereal and pop! I basically wanted the cereal but was kinda embarrassed to only buy the cereal because my total would have been $0. Then I spotted Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash 2 liters on sale for only $.77 and they also had hang tag coupons for $1/4. So I decided to buy 4 of them. This pop is really good and you can only buy it around the holidays so I decided to stock up.
CVS - $.84 I almost scratched CVS off my list this week but decided to stop and get some Crest Toothpaste. I was glad I stopped because the Crest Whitening Expressions was included in the ECB sale! It's my favorite toothpaste and since I've been couponing I haven't ever seen it included in an ECB sale at CVS. I had a $2/2 Gold Emblem Nuts coupon that I used for the cashews.
I also stopped at Lannings and bought 7 lbs of apples for $5.00.
Total spent this week $45.42
If I wouldn't have used any coupons this week I would have spent - $109.01 My normal budget for groceries is $70 (That includes all paper products and diapers). This week I was well below that. I've been thinking of trying to cut it down to $60 a week. Maybe I should start posting my spending every week so I'm accountable to someone?
I posted this in hoping that I'm encouraging you to use coupons and that you can see it is definitely worth it! It can be time consuming at times and I wonder why on earth I decided to start using coupons. But then when I'm at the checkout and I see how much I saved it's so worth it!
What kind of deals were you able to score this week?
