Happy Friday!  This has been a long week… but fun.  We hit CVS, Publix and Kroger this week, a little crazy for me.  I really am a one grocery store a week kinda girl, but I was already in Kroger getting all the mega event items so it’s hard to not grab a few things.

Total Before Sales & Coupons: $44.72
Total Spent: $16.44
Total Saved: $28.28 or 63%
ECB Remaining: $10

I went solely for the diapers… but grabbed the other deals as well.  I was pretty much able to follow the scenario as I planned so that was awesome.

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $84.16
Total Spent: $33.20
Total Saved: $50.96 or 60.5%

This was mostly the free items from the Mega Event and milk.  I did have a few fun coupons from calling a manufacturer recently too.

Total before sales and coupons: $94.59
Total Spent: $48.00
Total Saved: $46.59 or 49%

I ran in to get potatoes and steaks that was it… I left with a ton of half priced gluten free food I found in the clearance section.  I just couldn’t pass it up.  I would have only had one coupon for all the gluten free things had I been ready for the deals, so there was no point in waiting just to save $1.  The deal that made me the most happy was Tinkyada Rice pasta for $1.49.  I know pasta is free for all of us that can handle gluten, but for those that can’t this stuff is normally expensive!

We were right on track budget wise before the Publix trip, but that’s okay.  A big week happens every now and then!
