friday finals

I told you I would and I did… thanks to my big girls help we made it to Publix this week and managed to save half.  We spent more than we have in ages, but we also needed some basics after 7 weeks of really no shopping.  This included a couple gallons of milk, a roast for next Sunday’s lunch and a few other things that weren’t on sale at all.  So, leaving the store and still saving a tad bit more than 50% is great!

Total Value purchased: $170.94
Total Spent: $81.13
Total Saved: $89.81

I also submitted for $1.50 back from Checkout 51 and $1.25 back from Ibotta.

Next week I’m planning on heading to CVS for the Huggies diaper deal on top of grocery deals.  Here’s hoping we can do a bit better on staying on budget with our savings!

How was your savings this week?  Leave a comment or link to your savings post.

      Your sales tax was only 24cents?! Wow! Are property taxes high there? We pay 8-10% sales tax depending on which city you’re in here in AL.

        we have a 2% food tax in NC. I think SC has zero food tax.

          Actually, SC has 2% food tax. I live here. :)

        We have 0% food tax in SC and our property taxes are lower than what they were when we lived in NC.

        We pay in the 9% range in LA and it’s on the precoupon amount, but varies depending on category. CVS trips get me–there are times that most of my total is tax
