Weekly Shopping Totals

I didn't do much shopping this week, as I've been scurrying around preparing to leave town.

I did go out this morning and do a small bit of shopping.  I stopped by the Dollar Tree and spent $10.66 on some allergy meds and a few plane ride activities for my girls.

Then, I went to Tom Thumb armed with cereal coupons because I was down to my last 3 boxes.  I was hoping to stock up on the $1.99 Honey Bunches of Oats with my $1 coupons, but the fruit blends were not included in the sale.  They were $3.99!  Not. A. Chance.

Since that was $4 I wasn't going to be spending that I had planned to, I opted instead to grab a 10lb. bag of chicken leg quarters that were $0.59/lb.

Here is my sad excuse for a shopping trip:

Spent $7.38 after coupons.  My receipt shows that I saved 55%

These two trips, along with the $25.99 from El Rio Grande from Monday bring my spending for the week up to $44.03.  Not bad, but again, I hardly shopped.

Last week I promised a "for the year" average update, so I've added last weeks shopping and this week's shopping into my savings tracker, and looked and my total spending, and divided it by 10 because this is the 10th week of the year.   My total spent so far has been just $670.67, or $67.07 per week.  That is quite below my budget for $75 per week, and I feel like we've been eating much healthier so I'm very pleased with that!

I'll be going back out over the weekend or on Monday morning for a few necessities for my relatives who will be staying at our house with our animals while we travel, but aside from that, next week should be a very low spending week also, aside from any meals we may need to grab while out and about.

How did your shopping go this week?  Leave a comment or link up a post below:

I am a bit over for the year still, but I know it will even out. I just made my second batch of dishwasher detergent and still have tons of homemade laundry soap (hopefully enough to last until September!). I also over bought chicken since it was $1.29/lb so I should be set for 2 months. Wish I had more freezer space! Keep up the great work and thanks for linking up at My Road to Savings!
