I just got our shopping in under the wire again this week.  We ran out to Kroger today to get the current mega event and the 3 day sale items.

We grabbed a lot of things, many of which will be for thanksgiving dinner or desserts.  My girls are eager to start holiday baking so we also stocked up on some basic baking items.

Total before sales and coupons: $119.11
Total Spent: $56.83
Total Saved: $62.28 or 52.3%

Our non-coupon items included a pineapple, 2 packages of strawberries, 2 packages of sausage, eggnog (a splurge for my husband), and 2 Coca Cola 6pk bottles.  We rarely buy soda, it’s something that just isn’t in the budget, but it is a great deal part of the 3 day sale right now.  These go straight into the back of pantry and are saved for those days when a Coke is needed…  you know the days I’m talking about.

How did you do this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your post.  Remember if you Instagram pictures of your savings use hash tag #SouthernSavers and they will show up on the Southern Savers facebook page.

      I have noticed that you seem to only use a few coupons and the $/$$ ones, instead of getting all the deals that could save up to 80-90% like I see on so many other sites. I do appreciate your honesty, but with a wonderful site like yours…just curious why??
      Is it a time issue? or just burned out with the clipping of coupons?

        She has always talked about just getting what she needs, for 6 weeks, and not getting something just because it is on sale. It all adds to the budget and the room.
