Weekly Totals ~ 3/22


So…I had $1 in my wallet on Wednesday to shop. Seriously. We were out of town over the weekend (in a real ritzy, expensive area of Atlanta), so we spent WAY too much money. Anyway. So, I wanted to shop the sale that started Wednesday but wanted to keep it to $1 or less.

Impossible, right? Nope! My total was $0.62. Yes, 62 CENTS! I was pretty excited, and the manager who bagged my groceries was pretty impressed.

Here’s what I got:

Dole Pinapple Chunks = $0.75
Maybelline Eye Shadows x 2 = -$1.02
Bird’s Eye Steamfresh Chef’s Favorites = $0.22
Duncan Hines Frosting Creations x 2 = -$0.02
Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix x 2 = -$0.17
Lysol Trigger Spray = $0.85
Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner = $0.65
Alexia Frozen Rolls = -$0.85
Publix Sandwich Cookies = $0.01

Total retail: $24.98
Total OOP: $0.62
Savings: 98%
