Weekly Totals 11/8 – Share Your Savings

November 8, 2013 

 Weekly Totals 11/8   Share Your SavingsHappy Friday everyone. I hope you have had a great week. It is getting chilly here in Tennessee and I am loving it. I am a true southern gal and love the warm weather but the beautiful fall scene from my great room is just incredible.

The way our house is situated, we have a huge ridge behind our house. So all you can see when you look out my windows are beautiful trees with tons of fall color. It’s funny because at my house in Georgia I felt like I was in the boonies. It took me 20+ minutes to get to the grocery store. Here at my new house – my driveway is over a third of a mile long through the woods. It is so beautiful but you really feel like you are in the country. The great thing is,  I can get to civilization in about 10 minutes. So while it feels like the boonies I have all the conveniences that I missed in Georgia. Did I tell you guys I actually have pizza delivery out here. I forgot what it was like to have any kind of delivery. Yes…we have already had a pizza delivered for a football game a few weeks ago – it was awesome.

I did a pretty big trip this week and need some supplies for a couple of recipes that I need to do over the next week or so…so I will be going back tomorrow. I spent a fair amount this week and thought I had a gift card to use. I got to check out and realized that I had left it at home. Oh well…I’ll use it next time.

    I was just tickeled at checkout this week..spent $130 and saved $220!! That is an amazing week for me. I stocked up on lots of cough drops, pot pies (enough to share with my neighbor who generously gives me all her coupons every week!) and Viva paper towel. Thanks so much Michelle, I’d be lost and broke without ya!

I bought: 2 milk, 4 sugar, 6 cereal, 6 Cover Girl eye shadows, 4 kosher salt, 1 Quaker instant oatmeal, 1 Publix oatmeal, 2 tomato paste, 2 coffee creamers, 1 baby cereal, bottle liners, 6 chocolate chips, 2 pieces of fruit, 4 cinnamon rolls, lotion, rubbing alcohol and paid $3.60 after my $10 rebate card. I shopped Walgreens and bought: 8 dozen eggs, 2 turkey bacon, 4 sugar, 2 Libby’s pumpkin, and 2 Lindt chocolate for $16. CVS: paper towels & 4 folgers coffees for $0 oop after ECBS & gift card. Save A Lot: 10 lb ham, 15 lbs apples, 3 lbs frozen veggies, lettuce, tomatoes, bananas, and 2 chips for $25.

      Oh, and a huge thank you for all that you do! My cupboards would be just about bare if it wasn’t for coupons and sales.
