Friday Finals 1/18

Happy Friday!  After being nearly washed away yesterday, we spent today enjoying the beautiful sunny weather hiking in the woods.  I hope many of you enjoyed this gorgeous day after your rain/snow.  Shopping for us this week was pretty straight forward.  I hit Kroger for a ton of fruit thanks to a 4 day sale they were running.  We are finally ending the sickness battle in house so hopefully I can knock the fruit budget back a bit next week, though my kids and I have been loving it!

Total before sales and coupons: $136.41
Total Spent: $71.88
Total Saved: $64.56 or 47%

This was over half fruit, so I’m pleased!  We got blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapefruit, clementines, bananas, salad mix, and tomatoes.  I also ran into the meat manager marking down roasts and steaks, so I stocked up a little.  Anytime I can get good meat over 50% off, I’m ready!  I sweetly asked him if this was a routine to always be there at that time on that day, needless to say I think we’ll be back next week.

What did you grab this week?  Leave a comment with your savings or a link to your post.

      I am trying hard to add lots of fruits into the budget, too. I love Fresh & Easy near our home to get them. Thank you for opening the Friday final. So helpful to make my list for Saturday shopping!!!!!

    • I made 2 trips tonight first target to use my last 3 Method coupons . Their special 3 for $8.00 made it for me 3 for 5.00. Walmart to pick up a few things 4/16oz Boxes of cat food 2.98 each but with the coupon they gave me $3.25 full value of the coupon so we mad $1.08. I picked up some Dove Bodywash on clearance for $3.00 after coupon $ 2.00 .

      Jenny how do you post your Friday finals. Don’t know how, please post how. Thanks

      • Do you have them posted on a blog somewhere? If so, all you have to do is click on “Add your url” and fill in the blanks. In the line that asks for “name”, that means the name of your post. Then click on “Next step” and follow the instructions. It’s really not hard.
