We ventured out for quite a few deals this week!

To start I remembered quickly why the travel size freebies at Target aren’t for me.  We spent an hour wandering around trying to find things just leave with 1/3 of what I hoped to find.  I’ll gladly keep sharing the freebies but I’m not spending any more time trying to find them!

Walgreens
Total before sales and coupons: $89.25
Total spent: $19.62
Total Saved: $69.63 or 78%

Unlike Target, this trip went perfectly.  I haven’t shopped in Walgreens in months and was very pleased to leave happy with no difficulties in checking out!

Kroger
Total before sales and coupons: $92.09
Total Spent: $36.88
Total Saved: $55.21 or 59.9%

Target
Total before sales and coupons: $19.44
Total Spent: $8.91
Total Saved: $10.54 or 54%

I got a $5 gift card back and then used that and a bit more to buy a new toaster…  thankfully I don’t count that into our grocery budget!

Weekly Totals
Before sales and coupons: $200.78
Spent: $65.41
Saved: $135.37 or 67.4%
