What I Saved at the Stores {Week 6 of 2010}

Each Saturday, I detail what I spent and saved at the stores; this weekly post is my way of keeping myself on track for my weekly budget goals in 2010.

I hope that by sharing what I saved, you'll be inspired to keep couponing week in and week out.  Over time, your stockpile of high-use items for your family will grow and your total weekly bill will keep coming down, down, down!
What I Saved at the Stores: Week 6 (Feb 8-Feb 14)

Aldi (2/8)

Spent: $22.14
Saved: $0.00

Kroger (2/8)

Spent: $13.53
Saved: $5.77 (29%)
For the full breakdown of the deals I found and the coupons I used,
read my weekly Let's Go Krogering! post.

Walgreens (2/8)

Transaction #1

Spent: $3.57
Saved: $3.70 (51%)
Earned: $6.00 RRs

Transaction #2

 Spent: $1.14
Saved: $11.23 (91%)
Earned: $3.00 RRs

Aldi (2/12; no picture)
Milk ($1.88!), chips, salad dressing (my 6 yr old LOVES their caesar salad dressing!)
Spent: $4.36
Saved: $0.00

I also made one last trip on Sunday, 2/7/10, to Kroger to stock up at the end of the last Mega Sale Event (not to be confused with the current Daytona 500 Sale Event). 
Spent: $40.63
Saved: $85.51 (67%)


Weekly Totals
Saved: $106.21 (55%)

My weekly goal for my grocery/household budget is $80/week. I'm a smidge over this week but I was a smidge under last week so it comes out as a wash.

I didn't take advantage of the Daytona 500 sale at Kroger yet and I'm sure that my trip on Monday (2/15)will be awesome!  There are so many great stockpile deals for that sale; be sure to check the ad matchup at Mommy Snacks.

If you're new to the fabulous world of keeping more of your hard earned money in your pockets by strategic couponing and drugstore shopping, I encourage you to read these posts to help you get started.
