Weekly Totals ~ 4/19/13


Boy – I spent A LOT more than I planned to this week. That is due to me not checking the ads and coupon matchups (which would have saved me the $2.50 I spent on Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner that was FREE at Kroger).

And, we had to get cat litter, cat food and Rid X. If I had kept up with the ads, I could have gotten coupons for the cat food. But, I didn’t. So, I’ve learned my lesson.

Although I had two not-so-good trips, I also had two great trips, so overall, I’m happy with what I got this week!

Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches = $0.50
Tyson Chicken Fries x 2 = $1.29
Pictsweet Family Size Frozen Veggies x 2 = $3.39
Greenwise Paper Towel (3-pack) = $0.01
Quaker Products x 5 = $4.62
Beech-Nut Fruities x 6 = $2.97
Earth’s Best Fruit Pouches x 6 = $3.79
Happy Tot Fruit Pouch = $0.74
Scrubbing Bubbles with Fantastik x 2 = $1.38
Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner x 5 = $2.50
Pine-Sol Cleaner x 2 = $1.58
Pampers Baby Wipes = $0
Crest Toothpaste = $0.69
Neutrogena Facial Bar = $0.09
Minute Rice = $0.29
Publix Cat Litter = $5.79
Friskies Cat Food x 2 = $4.59
Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies x 2 = $3.18
Edy’s Outshine Bars x 2 = $2.65
Publix Instant Rice = $2.79
Rid X = $7.19
International Delight Coffee Creamer = $1.12
Pillsbury Cake Mix = $1.89
Baking Cups = $0.89
Pillsbury Frosting = $1.69
Chocolate Pretzels = $1.99
Kroger Black Beans x 4 = $2.76
Kroger Chili Beans x 2 = $1.38
Kroger Sea Salt = $1.99

So, after coupons and my $5 Kroger e-coupon from submitting a Pillsbury recipe, I paid $63.74 for $139.83 worth of groceries, a savings of 54%!

Looking at that percentage kind of bums me out because I know I could have done SO much better, but I just have to chalk it up to what it is and move on. Now, I’ll buckle down to do better in the future!
