I’m so not in the “grocery reporting” state of mind tonight.  I’ve spent the last two days undoing all of my weight watcher success for the past 6 months, and honestly enjoyed it all.  I guess a good workout is in order come tomorrow morning!

We did go grocery shopping this week at Bi-Lo.  My first big Bi-Lo trip in a number of months and while we saved 50% it was not a great experience.  Let’s just say that the assistant store manager “Ralph” needs to learn how to smile.  I’ll stop there…

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $126.90
Total Spent: $62.14
Total Saved: $64.76

Due to unforeseen events I had to skip all drugstore Thanksgiving deals.  It was probably God telling me that I have enough toothpaste and deodorant for the next 3 years, so I’m good with it.  I might stop in a store on our way home tomorrow, but have no doubt that the shelves will be bare.

We did make it out for some Black Friday shopping though!

My store of choice…

The Black Friday event at the Goodwill Bookstore!

This wasn’t really planned but who can turn down 59¢ puzzles, 99¢ board games, and 45¢ books???

One parenting tip: A great lesson to teach your children is that presents do not need to be new.  My girls will love everything and probably won’t even notice that the game boxes aren’t new or the books have been read before.

How did you do this week?  Leave a link to Grocery savings post or an awesome Black Friday savings post.  Or leave a comment to share all the fun you had this week.  (I confess I’m in the mood for fun Black Friday stories.)
