I had a lot of shopping to do over the past week, so I carried what was left of last week’s grocery budget into this week’s too. So the total budget for everything below is $300.
CVS had a really great sale this week. I bought $56.25 worth of groceries for $30.78. I used a $10 CVS e-gift card, but I am taking $10 out of the budget to add to the Disney Fund. I love the greeting card deal, as I keep a stock of these on hand. I left CVS with $7 in Extra Care Bucks and a $10 CVS Gift Card for next week.
My husband went with me to Walgreens this week (I had to go to 2 different stores to get everything pictured) and he talked me into spending my Register Rewards on the Alabama National Championship Shirt (it was $9.99.). So in total, I bought $42.19 worth of groceries for $22.63 plus I left with $17 in RRs for next week.
I found some really great deals at Target this week. Each of the toy sets for $3 each and I put those up for Jacob’s birthday in March. I also got 2 different things of frozen seafood, 2 bags of frozen veggies and 2 bags of shredded cheese. I got $35.32 worth of groceries for $26.07.
I love making a weekly trip to Food Giant (a local store that doubles up to $1 on Mondays). I picked up some soup that my mother in law loves, some yogurt, muffins, jelly and more. I got a total of $38.07 worth of groceries for $15.66.
Walmart was my biggest shopping trip. I had to buy Amlactin lotion for Emily (that’s $12 a bottle!), special cleanser ($6), facial lotion for myself ($6), special tape, insulating strips for our door and a lot more of miscellaneous stuff. I got $179.27 worth of groceries for $113.85.
Publix had a great sale this week. I was able to stock up on snacks, lunch food, juice, cheese, lunch meat and more. I got a total of $97.56 worth of groceries for $46.30.
And finally, I got most of the items in this picture for FREE. The Copy Paper was $41.99 with $41.98 back in rebates. The binders were $7.49 each with $7.48 back in rebates (on each). Those were all FREE with my gift card that I use to roll these MaxPerks rewards deals. I paid $14.16 for the 500 count envelopes and the Avery labels, but I will get most of that back via rebate. So that’s a total of $71.13 in office supplies for $14.16.
We also went to Jack’s today for our weekly out to eat trip. We spent $19.88.
Total Spent: $269.45 on groceries; $19.88 at Jack’s
Total Left in 2 weeks worth of budget: $10.67
