After much suspense I get to share how great our week was.

I am amazed at how many entries there were: over 8600 guesses!  Thanks for being so receptive to the new form, we learned very quickly that our server could not handle the load of everyone commenting so I got creative fast.

First the picture was taken in Kroger.  So how much was the buggy worth?

Total Value: $216.56

Total Spent: $76.75 ($50 on Kroger Gift Card so only $26.75 out of pocket!)
Total Saved: $139.81

I did 7 transactions for the Mega Event at the same time and then added in a lot of fruit and a few not on sale items for a special Birthday Dinner for my husband. (I knew I had the gift card so it was nice to splurge a little).

Total Value: $168.58
Total Spent: $64.57
Total Saved: $104.01

Weekly Total
Total Value: $385.14
Total Spent out of pocket: $91.32
Total Saved: $293.82

Remember we haven’t gone grocery shopping all month, so this is a bit more than we would normally spend but we had extra saved from past weeks.

The Winners:

$216.12 Laura  – laurakristenbrown@
216.23 Melissa  – mmyarbrough@

216.5 brandon – seminole6401@ (only 6 cents off!!)
$216.74 Lindsay –  lharden523@
$216.84 laura – lazyleopard82@

I will give my swagbucks update tomorrow in a post with a few hints I’m learned.
