We ran out this week for some basic items we needed and few of the top deals, but didn’t get much else.  It was another quiet week for me shopping wise and I’m enjoying using up some items from the dark deep recesses of our freezer instead of shopping!

At CVS we grabbed most of the big deals of the week (see the video I shared earlier).  My total spent out of pocket was $5.17 (which I used a CVS gift card for).  I also left the store with $15 in ECB towards next weeks deals (very exciting since there is an awesome diaper deal next week).

CVS Totals:

Total Spent: $5.17
Total Value Purchased: $87.29
Total Saved: $82.12
ECB Remaining: $15 ECB

This was most of the top deals for the week plus a box of Prevacid that thankfully is on sale and printing an ECB.  We had store coupons for almost everything we grabbed and two different store coupons for the Prevacid (a $4 off $20 in stomach remedies and a $3 off Prevacid).

After CVS my entourage and I went to Publix.  We grabbed milk, taco shells and a few other top deals on the list this week but not much else.  After seeing ads and deals for next week I’m kinda glad we took it small this week!  I see trips to Target, CVS and Publix on the agenda for next week!

Publix Totals:

Total Spent: $18.10
Value Purchased: $45.91
Total Saved: $27.81 or 60.5%
