We had a great shopping/budget week until this afternoon.  I learned the afternoon that much like not going shopping when you are hungry, you shouldn’t go grocery shopping when you are sick.  I walked the store buying things that sounded nice to my sore throat without any consideration of price.  I have had a great afternoon of delicious hot tea, tomato soup, ginger ale etc.

Thanks to everyone who voted for “Love This Site” over the last few days.  I sat at my computer drinking hot tea and watching.  It was very fun and while it’s not official I think we won!

Publix:
Total Before Sales and Coupons: $122.31
Total Spent: $ $59.50
Total Saved: $62.81 or 51.1%

This is my really good trip added together with my sick supermarket sweep run.  After doing the math I’m glad that I at least kept us at 50% savings.

Bi-Lo:
Total Before Sales and Coupons: $44.19
Total Spent: $12.77
Total Saved: $31.42 or 71.1%

This might be one of the highest percentage saved at Bi-Lo I’ve had.  It was great trip.

Walgreens:
Total Before Sales and Coupons: $51.92
Total Spent: $2.97
Total Saved: $48.95 or 94.3%

We went just for the Nivea Lip/Lotion Deal and Band-Aids. I went to a different store than normal and met the most wonderful Walgreens cashier.  I hope it’s the start of a great friendship.
