This is a special Friday in our house.  My husband and I are celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary!  Looking back, my husband and I would never have seen us being where we are today.  That is the fun part though, is seeing that God’s plans are much bigger than our own.

As for shopping this week, I only hit Rite Aid and Walgreens.  We didn’t really need any groceries with upcoming trips and having already stocked up on holiday meal items.

Rite Aid:
Total before sales and coupons: $5.98
Total Spent: $4.48
+UP Remaining: $5

I went to test the gift set deal I posted earlier this week.  It worked like a charm!

Total before sales and coupons: $19.73
Total Spent: $5.91
Total Saved: $13.82 or 70%

I bought the Tums and toothpaste that were free after Register Rewards, then used those $6.50 in RR to pay for all the clearance baking goods I found.

The extra in our grocery budget will probably be put towards gas next week as we drive to see grandparents and great grands!

How did you do this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your grocery savings post.  If you have Instagram don’t forget to use the #SouthernSavers so it shows up on facebook!

      Woohoo! I was excited to do this deal at Target. I braved the crowds yesterday and went looking for Glade products. Wondered if any had been marked down since very close to holiday and some have holiday packaging.

      Several four ounce candles were marked down to $2.12. Still having the Gift Card $5 promo WYB 5. So I had two $2/2 (printables) cpns and one $1/1 cpn (I think form AllYou mag maybe). $10.60 minus $5 in cpns plus tax then got a $5 Gift Card back. I had other purchases and used it right away on my other transaction.

      I frequently remove the packaging and tie ribbon around these to give as little gifts or include in larger gift baskets. So I was happy to find some yummy scents to share.

      I hit Target at just the right time! They’d just loaded some ‘gift sets’ on the clearance end cap – marked at $8.48. I purchaged three gift sets containing a Venus Razor, FS Shave Gel, and FS Clairol Essence Shampoo AND Conditioner – used 3 Target Q’s for $3 off Venus and a MAN Q for $5 off any Venus – paid only 38¢ each! These were originally $17 each – wahoo!
      I also purchase three gift sets containing a Fusion Razor w/3pk cartridges, FS Fusion shave gel, and a sundry of travel size creams. Clearance price of $8.48, used a Target Q for $2 off Fusion, and MAN Q for $5 – paid $1.48 for these – and my son LOVES these rather expensive razors!!
