Groceries for the week

I have done the grocery shopping for the week and have spent a total of $51.81($70.76 before sales and coupons)!  I am really proud of myself.  Before couponing I would spend easily $115 a week.  Now, because I have stock-piled on really great deals, I don't have much to buy each week.  This week I went to Food City and Wal-Mart. I don't mind going to both because they are so close to each other.  The savings is worth the extra stop to me.  I was able to get everything we will need for the week plus a few "stock-pile" items.  Everything else we need for the week I already had in the pantry or freezer from stocking up at rock bottom prices during sales and using coupons.  Click on "Read More" to see how I did!

  1. Impressive! I am not as good as you, but have found myself saving $10-$15 a week, which can add up quickly! Shelley in Marion
