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.



Spent: $8.09

($9.65 w/tax)

Saved: $28.30

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!



Spent: $5.35

($6.07 w/taxes)

Saved: $25.01

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…



Spent: $3.91

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!

I made money on the First Aid Kits and razors…  I probably should have bought something practical like food with the overage, but I REALLY liked the pencil pouch!  So I got it for a make up bag for my upcoming trip home!  🙂

I also went back just now to use some expiring RRs to buy my hubby a padfolio for school/church.  He’s had his eye on it for a few weeks and asked me earlier this week if I would work towards getting him enough RRs to buy it so we didn’t have to spend money out of pocket for it.  He was so sweet and I love that he thought of using coupons for it!  Well, I had $6 that are expiring in the next couple days and I’m really not excited about anything at Walgreens next week so we went and got that for him.  🙂  I am now RRless!  😦

Over all, I did pretty well this month.  It’s the first month I’ve tracked my spending so closely and I’ll be honest with you, I was a little shocked to see that I’d spent so much!  My goal is to get spending down to $100 a month on food and toiletries, including taxes!!  Next month may be a little off because of vacation, but I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on how #’s are looking!  🙂
