Weekly Totals 2/1 – Share Your Savings!

UnknownHappy Friday everyone - I hope you have all great week. The first day of the month is always super busy. I feel like I have had this computer attached to me for most of the day! There have been a bunch of good deals so I can't complain too much :-)

Well, I told you I would likely have a big trip this week. I traded for a bunch of coupons for the mega sale at Kroger. I had to wait for them t arrive, once they did - boy, did I shop! I ended up with two carts worth of groceries and really stocked up. I am actually considering going back in a bit. If I go tonight I will update this post. If I end up going tomorrow I will just add them to next week's totals. My husband volunteered to take a case of water for the Boy Scout's Pine Box derby and  we don't have any bottled water here. He said he assumed we had some. What a nut - he said, "We have at least one of everything, I figured there would be water in there somewhere."

So here is what I got this week. While there aren't a ton of items on the list, you will see the quantities of each is fairly large on some items. I am set for Hefty Storage Bags, Brillo pads and Rotel for the year. I also should have enough Jell-O for the boys' lunch boxes for 2 months.

    I have spent only $4.64 and saved $202 this week!!! If time allows I will hit the store again in the morning and call it a week.

  2. Laura says

    I also stocked up at Kroger the past couple weeks. Hefty, reach and chi chi tortillas are plenty around here this week:) thanks as always for the matchups! Couldn’t do it without ya!:)

  3. Angela says

    I spent $55, saved $125 this week which includes :-) I’m very satisfied with that total since it included a lot of fresh meat, veggies etc.

  4. Jenn says

    Lots of these are great totals for snacks, household/cleaning items, drinks, pantry staples, etc.! But I don’t see many lists (each week) that include fresh meat/chicken/fish & veggies like Angela mentions. Is that because it’s an ‘off week’ for buying those items and actual meals are made from what’s in the freezer? I guess I haven’t figured out how to shop that way :(

      I get a produce delivery and much of my meat is from my freezer (Zaycon orders of beef, chicken, shrimp, fish) and other items that I have bought when they are stock up price.
      I only buy meat when I need a specific cut for a recipe or if I run out of a particular type.
