For anyone that wants a triples list, it is coming but I ran out of minutes today and am now working off what internet my husbands cellphone has.  I will work on it this weekend though and get it up as soon as possible!

Now for our savings…  we hit Kroger, Bi-Lo, Rite Aid this week.  The picture below is Bi-Lo.  This was a strange week for us and I really didn’t use that many coupons at all.  I ran out of time and instead of us starving it was just go to the store and stick to the sales.  For anyone that just truly doesn’t have time, you can save a lot of money just by buying off the lists each week even if you have no coupons!!

Okay no picture… it just took 10 minutes to load the box…  I’ll load the picture the next time we are near real internet!  I did take it, honest!!

Total Before coupons & Sales: $43.40
Total Spent: $19.91
Total Saved: $23.49 or 54.1%
(this was P&G deals mostly with bread and milk)

Total Before coupons and Sales: $108 (can’t find the reciept for the exact pennies)
Total Spent: $47
Total Saved: $61 or 56.5%

Rite Aid:
Total before coupons and rebates: $47.25
Total after rebates: profit $12

Total before coupons and sales: $84.38
Total Spent: $8.14
Total Saved: $76.24

Weekly Total:
Before coupons, sales and rebates: $283.03
Total Spent: $63.05
Total Saved: $219.98 or 77.7%

The internet and my patience won’t hold out for me to do the year to do date calculation but I know we are still under our $50 budget a week.
