Why pay full price when you can get it for free or nearly free?

CVS:

Spent: $1.57

(2.55 w/tax)

Saved: $34.69

96% Savings!!

Got some good clearance deals on my second trip this week.  My CVS had a bunch of their brand 2 liters for a quarter!  Yeah yeah!

Food City:

Spent: $6.78

($8.26 w/tax)

Saved:$13.14

49% Savings

They were having a pretty decent Con Agra sale at Food City this week.  Buy 10, get $3 off automatically.  I paired that with the 30 cents off 2 Snack Packs and the $1.50 off 4 Con Agra items to get some cheap meals for when the hubby goes back to school.

Kroger:

Spent: $8.09

($9.65 w/tax)

Saved: $28.30

72% Savings!

I also got a gallon of milk that didn’t make it in the picture… I paired the General Mills 50% off sale with coupons (that Kroger doubled!) for some rockin’ deals on some snacks.  These will come in VERY handy on our trip next week.  I’ve been watching sales for a while now, trying to find some cheap snacks that are easy to pack so we don’t have to spend an arm and a leg at the airports!

Walgreens:

Spent: $5.35

($6.07 w/taxes)

Saved: $25.01

79% Savings!

My Walgreens had these Photo Stamps on clearance for $4.99!!!  They are regularly $19.99!  Even better, I was out of stamps and these were cheaper than buying more at the post office and they’ve got my cute lil’ doggy on them!  🙂  I’m thinking I’m going to pic up another box next week if they still have some…

Walmart:

Spent: $3.91

($4.79 w/tax)

Saved: $6.00

45% Savings

Yet more travel things!  lol

_________________________________________________________________________________________
So here’s my totals:

Spent: $25.70

($31.32 w/tax)

Saved: $107.24

76% Savings for the week

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Monthly Totals so far:

It’s only week one, so same as above.  I’m a little over budget this week ($100/month) but I’m under what I was last month at this time!  🙂  I also bought some stuff this week that I normally wouldn’t buy, such as the fruit snacks and so many snack bars… I’m writing the overage off as ok since it’s for our trip home and the little extra out of the grocery budget will save us a ton at the airport!
