What I Saved at the Stores | Week 19 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!

Kroger, 5/10
Spent: $55.54
Saved: $77.46 (58%)
Read about the coupons I used at my weekly Let's Go Krogering! post.

Aldi 5/10
Spent: $25.18
Saved: $0.00

Walgreens 5/09

Spent: $1.29 cash + $5.00 RRs
Saved: $16.20 (93%)
Earned: $5.00 RRs on the Hydro Razor
*I also had a $1.00/2 Skippy PB - it was a Walgreens catalina q that I held onto
because PB is a food group unto itself at our house! *

CVS 5/9
(I lucked into a $1.00/1 CVS Hair Care q & a $1.00/2 CVS First Aid q
from the CVS coupon machine!  WOOT!)
Spent: $2.42 + $5.00 ECBs
Saved: $24.95 (91%)
Earned: $4.00 ECBs on (2) deodorants
Weekly Totals:

Spent: $84.43
Saved: $118.64 (58%)

I'm just a bit over my weekly budget target of $80/week but I was under last week so I'm good to go after I average my totals.  8-)

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.

You can save like this, too!  In fact, I know you can do this; if you're surfing the web reading this site and others like it, you can learn all you need to know. 

If you have any questions, please ask in a comment!  I love to share what I know about couponing and saving money with you -- it's why I write this site.  ;-)
