Well, today was our weekly shopping trip and I didn't do as well as I had hoped. Last week we spent less than $50.00 so I knew this week would be more. I had budgeted $75.00 for Lowe's Foods and another $50.00 for Food Lion. I did realy well at Lowe's Foods and spent $74.00 (Saved $60.00 in coupons). But, when we wnt to Food Lion, it came up to $93.00! I'm still in shock! I stuck to my list but, forgot that I needed kitty litter and cat food (which totals about $32.00 for both). So, even with subtracting that amount, I was still over by $11.00. I did save another $58.00 between MVP and coupons. So, total for the week is:
* $285.00 worth of groceries for $168.00 OOP- total savings of $117.00 for the week! Not too bad if you look at it that way ;o)
Now, for the next 2 weeks, I will have to keep to $75.00 to $100.00 a week so we can make the house payment. With what I already have stockpiled, it shouldn't be to difficult.
How was your shopping this week?
