Even My Mother Can't Believe. . .

that I saved so much money today!
Hey Everybody,
Thanks to my friend Kelly's motivation and mentoring skills, I finally got under the $100 mark TODAY on my weekly grocery trip! Rich and I had to hustle to get the food put up because we were headed out to Chick fil a (free sandwiches today! yum!) :), so I didn't get a picture, but I will give you the breakdown:
I spent: $94.
Now, that's my total shopping trip, after going to both Publix and Kroger.
  • Publix: Spent $19.95 and saved $27.49. That's a savings of around 58%.
  • Kroger: Spent $74.00 and saved $46.47. That's a savings of around 38%.
I am really pleased with this. I keep calling it the "grocery game" because I am really having fun with it. Clipping my coupons, doing the meal plans, matching up the deals--it is good, clean fun! It beats sudoku, anyway! LOL

Learning as I go is the reality of my life!

That's so good! I'm not always the best at clipping coupons, but I do the sale ads online. I always check our local markets ads, write them down and then go there, and if not there, use Wal-mart with the sale ads. Wal-mart is the black pit to me. I go in for 3 things and walk out with 20! Gah! Trying to stay away if I can.

P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog! I feel so honored. Seriously! And the fact you added me... whooohoooo!

I spend about $300.-$350. every other week and that doesn't include the trips in between for things like milk, bread, fruit etc.
