I haven’t been shopping for everyday items for several weeks so my total this week was kind of high. And, this is technically my first grocery savings entry for 2009 (even though it’s 2008). I am working on modifying our budget slightly for the new year so I think for the total month I’ll be fine. So, without a lot of talking, here’s my savings and pictures for the week:
Total OOP: $122.91
Total Savings: $111.20
I bought $50 in P&G products so not only did I get the $10 instant savings, but I will send in for the rebate too. I’m excited to get those coupons! I have replenished my fabric softener stockpile so I don’t think I’ll need to make a purchase again until maybe the summer. I did manage to get diapers, formula, meat, fruit…well just lots!
That was the only stop for the week too so it was quick. I did also purchase a few Christmas items that were marked at 50% off. I didn’t include those in the pic or my total since I didn’t use our grocery budget for that.

I always share all my savings around the blogosphere with some other super savin’ ladies: MoneySavingMom, BeCentsAble (Show and Tell) and the “Cent”sible Sawyer (CVS Superstars and Drugstore Divas). Be sure to visit their links to see how others made out this shopping week too!!
