This was a get back to business week at our house.  Our girls got busy into school work and I got busy into some deep cleaning and shopping!!  I hoped to make it to Kroger and a drugstore but went a little over board in Kroger so for our budgets sake decided to hold off on any drugstore runs (that will be next week looking at the awesome Rite Aid ad).

I ended up doing 11 mega event deals in the same transaction!  After not shopping for a few weeks it was time to just get back to stocking up.  (Mind you my stocking up is truly sticking to the six week rule — you might want 40 boxes of Fiber One because they are free but really… we will see a good sale again I promise!)

Total Before sales and coupons: $252.24
Total Spent: $87.91
Total Saved: $164.33 or 67%

This also included a few comfort foods by request of my husband.  It is such a joy to have him eating again though that I’ll pretty much buy anything he wants with no complaints (for a few weeks in anyway).  Thank you for your sweet words or encouragement and prayers last week!
