Weekly Spending Summary

This was a bigger week of spending due partly to the fact that I bought some chicken. I still got some great deals though!

Total Spent: $53.87
Total Saved with Coupons: $70.54
Total Saved with Sales: $53.61
Total Saved: $124.15

Rite Aid: $2.84 (+ $0.30 change)
Saved with Coupons: $33.48
Saved with Sales: $17.29

All the above was free or a moneymaker after UPRewards and Single Check Rebates. I was rather annoyed when I got home and realized that I had 2 FREE product coupons for the Poligrip! I didn't remember that I had them and if I had used them I would have made about $6! I guess I'm paying for my disorganization. :)

CVS: $0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $12.99
Saved with Sales: $3.77

Had I not used a gift card, I would have paid $0.52. I had a FREE product coupon for the Chef Boyardee.

Giant: $11.00
Saved with Coupons: $22.07
Saved with Sales: $21.78

A fun interesting week at Giant. I had some $1 coupon doublers that I decided to use but in order to use them I needed to spend $15 out of pocket AFTER coupons. I really don't know how my total got down to $11 since I don't think that was supposed to happen, but I wasn't going to complain! :)

I got all 40 packs of Kool-Aid for free. What will I do with 40 packs of Kool-Aid? Give a bunch away and keep some to make homemade pop-sicles this summer.

The cereal bars were part of a deal where I got two $4 coupons to use on my next purchase by purchasing them. The Egg Beaters were free with a coupon. I didn't realize that they have other stuff- think unhealthy stuff- in them otherwise I might not have purchased them. The one orange juice was free and the other 2 I paid either $0.50 or $0.99 for- I can't remember. And I bought the feta cheese as filler to get me to $15. I use it a lot anyway and it has a long expiration so I figured it was a good thing to buy!

Yoder's Country Market: $22.78
Saved with Coupons: $2.00
Saved with Sales: $10.77

I had $1 coupons for the sugar. I've switched to using raw sugar quite a bit so these two bags should last me a long time. Yoder's was also having a meat sale and I was able to get boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.69/lb. I love cooking it up, shredding it and having it in the freezer to speed up my meal prep!

Aldi: $17.25


  1. I got my free Egg Beaters at Kroger. All 4 of us thought they were GROSS!

  2. I was at Yoder's last week too! It's always nice to stock up on meat when they have such good prices! I was at Shady Maple yesterday because they had some cheap hamburger... I should be stocked up for quite a while on meats.~Susan
