Here’s a recap of what I’ve spent this week:
Last Saturday at CVS (I won’t go into what I got):
I bought $43.30 of stuff for $15.70 – a 69.5% savings!
And I got $13.48 in ECBs back!
I went to double coupon Monday at Food Giant just to get a few items. They were out of the Jif peanut butter that was on sale (it was a good sale!) so I only got one item that I had a coupon on (the muffin mixes). The lettuce was on sale, the other items were just must haves.
I spent $6.76
I went to Walgreens this week too. I got 2 dozen eggs (had a rain check from last week when they were 99c), half gallon of milk, a candy bar, deodorant, and a Gillette razor (99c this week!)
It was $24.53 worth of stuff for $4.50 and I got $5RR back!
I entered all this into my savings tracker. I have a $300 grocery budget each month. I’ve spent $259.98 this month which leaves me $40.02 in my $300 budget. I’ve received $16.49 in rebates this month – I always add my rebate money back into my grocery budget. So I have an extra $16.49 to spend this month. With 10 days left in the month, I have $56.51 left!
