The moment is finally here.  Sorry to make you wait in suspense I’ve been out walking K Mart to put together the best K Mart doubles list I can for ya!  Don’t wait up for it though unless you are a night owl.

You saw my picture earlier of our loot.  I grouped my trips together, to make it a bit more challenging.  My totals were

Total Before coupons and sales: $192.61
Total Spent: $53.01
Total Saved: $139.60

This was a Kroger and CVS run added together.  I confess I only have the totals now though I figured that up earlier this week for the picture and then cleaned out my purse.  So I can’t break it down by store.

The winners from today’s Grocery Guess:

jill.lawson@   192.62
shannontomlin@    $192.58
cellojoy@    $192.58
donnierpickett@ $ 192.56

Now, how did you do this week on your shopping?  Leave a comment or link to your weekly wrap up post.  I’m going to have to ask guys that you leave a link to a favorite savings post if you do tons of them.  Really some of these are getting a bit excessive with 5-10 links per blog.

      My Publix shopping trip this week was the best one yet (for me)! I spent $88 and saved $189! One of my favorite deals was the strawberry shortcake…3 of the smaller sizes of Sara lee pound cake, 4 tubs of cool whip, 4 pints of strawberries…$2.42! I love it! If I had been able to print out one more pound cake coupon, it would have only been $1.42! Can't beat that! We had strawberry shortcake for dessert for Easter! Yummy!
