Weekly Spending Summary

I actually did quite a bit of shopping this week even though I decided to skip going to Rite Aid. I was running out of several basic things and had kept putting off going to the different stores to get them. I finally bit the bullet and went this week.

Total Spent: $54.27
Total Saved with Coupons: $6.50
Total Saved with Sales: $1.32
Total Saved: $7.82

$0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $1.50
Saved with Sales: $0.30

It looks like I failed to take a picture of my "huge" purchase- 1 Balance protein bar. I wouldn't have even bothered to go to CVS this week except that I had to take care of the glitch last week with my Extra Care card. They gave me the money back on a gift card, which was fine with me.

Saved with Coupons: $5.00
Saved with Sales: $1.02

It must be the week for missing pictures, because it appears that I forgot to take this picture too. I know I bought a gallon of milk (which I had a free catalina coupon for) but I'm not sure what else I got. :(

Walmart: $9.96

Aldi: $14.77

Centerville Bulk Foods: $12.85

Creekside Bulk Food
: $16.33

I hardly ever go to this little store, but I was close by and knew that they had eggs and butter cheaper than I could get them anywhere else, so I decided to stop in.

  1. How much do you pay for rolled oats at Centerville Bulk foods? I thought oatmeal was supposed to be really cheap. Around here, I pay .65 lb. Makes granola more expensive than cereal bought with a coupon!

  2. I pay $0.56/lb. and I agree with the whole thing of making granola being much cheaper (not to mention healthier) than cereal! I know I've been buying some cereal lately, but honestly, we hardly eat it. I like to have it on hand for when we have guests since I know some people don't like granola and occasionally if I run out of granola- as in I didn't have time to make it- we will eat cereal.

    And sorry it took me so long to see your comment. For some reason my email must think you are spam and so they don't show up and I don't always notice new comments when I log onto Blogger. :(

  3. Actually, you misunderstood my comment. :) I was saying that making granola is MORE expensive than what I pay for cereal. Granola is healthier though.

  4. :) Silly me! That's actually really interesting because for some reason I was thinking that even with getting cereal that cheap, granola was still cheaper. But you are right, it wouldn't be. The one thing is though, we have to eat way more cereal to fill us up like granola does, but even with that figured in, it would be cheaper. Glad you pointed that out!


I love your feel free to leave them!
