This was a light shopping week for us.  After all the cooking the week before we had a ton of leftovers to eat up!  We’ve had turkey sandwiches, turkey noodle soup, turkey tetrazzini… I finally stopped my husband with chilli and made him put hamburger in it!

I ran into Publix only to get milk, chilli beans and BOGO hot chocolate.

Total before sales and coupons: $15.12
Total Spent: $9.41
Total Saved: $5.71

There were no coupons for any of our three items.  So all the savings was the BOGO sale basically.

I’m glad to have the extra budget money though we are using it towards some Zaycon hamburger next week (40 lbs of 93% lean for $3.29 lb)!

      I am 13 years old and have been couponing a little over a year it is very exciting to get that deal. I wasn’t as good as first we were going to walmart and saving $7.00 a week it wasn’t helping my mother at all. So i found out about harris teeter and was saving easy $50.00 to $70.00 a week. It was hard at first i had to buy newspapers and was only buying 1 now i can get up to 17 newspapers a week i have started printing more coupons from internet and promotions. I was with my grandmother one day and she told me that there is this website called southern savers and i went and i was set up you had the newspaper preview to know how many i buy store deal, new coupons and promotions. You have helped me more then you can imagine i feel very accomplished. I wanted to do something to give back to my mother for all things she did for me and couponing was the key. So i am greatly thankful for your help.

      I went to WalMart, Kroger, CVS, and Publix this week. My biggest savings was at CVS for 80.9% (this was only because they were out of the cereal that was on sale and the mgr gave me the bigger boxes for the same price which were normally about $8 ea.). Wal Mart was the next big savings for 79.8% (YEAH for Jimmy Dean!). Kroger came in last with 53.4% (my daughters were with me and just had to have a One Direction toothbrush and toothpaste – not that we don’t have a million and one other brushes and pastes at the house!). Publix was great this week with 2 hauls – 1 for each sale – these were my biggest Publix hauls I have done and they went GREAT!!! – I love my Publix peeps! 69.2% – but I am extremely happy with the deals I got as this was most of my grocery items this week! My girls were with me at the 1st one and they had to keep telling me to be quiet because I was really excited at my savings!
