Grocery shopping this week = $37.57

This week, grocery shopping was kinda on the fly. Whenever I got a chance to go to a grocery store or drug store, I took it. So this is out of the norm for me to hit up 5 different stores for spending our weekly $40 grocery monies.

I took Grandma Jo out to run some errands and she wanted to stop at Big Lots, and they had a huge rack filled with bread priced at $1 each. We've been running out of bread like crazy lately, so I took this opportunity to stock up a bit. Total spent below, $5.

Walgreens had a deal this week if you bought 2 Kellogg's cereal for $5, you got $2 back in Register Rewards. So I had a coupon for the Kashi box, and spent only $1.08 for the picture below. I also want to note that I had two coupons to get the Always pads for free, and I used some previous Register Rewards to knock the bill down some.

The boys and I went to a super cool park nearby a Walmart, so we just stopped in there to pick up some free wipes, and here's what we came out with. (The Pampers wipes were $1.97 and we had 10 $2 off coupons). We will donate the wipes, since our boys are almost out of diapers. :)
Total spent for the picture below, $19.18.

County Market had a couple of great items this week. The Oreo's will come in handy for a couple of events coming up where I need to bring a dessert. I think I might make a couple Oreo pies! Yum! Total spent for the picture below, $8.31.

I'm not sure if this falls into our grocery spending, but we've been drinking it like water since it's so hot out! We had 4 BOGO (buy one, get one free) coupons, and they were $1 at Target, so we spent $4 on the picture below.

And who can say "no" to free strawberries from a friend? We froze half of them for smoothies and gobbled up the rest! (Thanks, Debbie!)

Total spent for all the grocery items this week was $37.57! Stayed under budget again! I love that. How did you do this week?


  1. Awesome shopping! Isn't it the greatest feeling to be under budget?! I'm a new follower! Would love for you to check out my blog and follow me (if you want). Can't wait to see all your other great deals! :)

  2. Oh those strawberries look so good! I want some! We actually have a plant going in our backyard right now so we will see if it turns out! I also got those free Always coupons from Walgreens - weird! But I was happy! I love free stuff too! And I also did the Sobe deal - I have been drinking it like water too since it tastes so good but I am about out already! :)
