What I Saved at the Stores {Week 43 of 2010}

I share my weekly savings with the hopes that you might be inspired; this weekly post also serves as a means of keeping me on track with my budget goals.  Thank for stopping in to check it out!

Weekly Totals

Spent: $79.46

My weekly goal for my grocery/household budget is $80/week. I'm just squeaking under this week and I'm really happy with some of the great stockpiling items I was able to get for my family.  Between the GM Cereal deal at Kroger and the Super Double coupon event at Remke/Biggs on 10/29, my pantry and freezers are loaded up again.  Sounds like it's time for a Pantry Challenge menu plan at my house!  ;-)

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.
