My Shopping Week Jan 17th – Jan 25th

I did spend more than usual at both CVS and Walgreens.  It was only because I need to start my ECB and RR stash!  Here on out my goal is less than $1 each week per store.  Since I am updating and adding advanced sections to my CVS and Walgreens tutorial I want to be able to show you how you can fully take advantage of the program.  I had actually taken some time off from fully utilizing the program simply because I had enough stock to last at least a year.  It’s time to start it up again! 

I haven’t been real good about taking pictures of my grocery store buys.  I will start that again in Feb. Hubby has been doing the shopping this month (he does use the list and coupons, but I forget to get the picture and receipt afterwords)

KMart – $1.59

4 Glade Soy Candles -$0.25 each
2 Kellogg’s Cereals – $0.05 each
Milky Way – $0.01
Candy Canes – $0.01

Tax was $0.47.  I saved $7.83 using store sales, $12 using coupons/Catalinas, and $5 using a rebate.  I bought the candles first (in groups of 2) and I then used the two $3 Catalina’s to purchase the cereal, candy canes, and milky way.  When I got home I sent for the $5 Glade rebate!

Walgreens – $19.04

Tostitos Dip = $1.65
Doritos = $2.50
Tostitos = $1.65
Lays = $2.50
3 Kraft Mac & Cheese = $0.59 each
4 Sierra Mist (12) Packs = $1.97 each

Tax was $1.09.  I saved $6 using store sales, $2.70 using Wags coupons, and $5.82 using a rebate (I had to split the rebate between this order and my CVS order since I didn’t quite have $20 in Tostitos and soft drinks on this receipt.  I did get a $10 RR, which I will start rolling to get cheap deals!

CVS -$6.60

Sobe Lifewater = $0.54 each
4 Sierra Mist 2 Liters = $0.23 each
3 Stacy’s Pita Chips = $0.57 each
2 Oust Air Sanitizers = $1.00 each
Lay’s BBQ Chips = $0.40

Tax was $0.49.  I saved $5 in store sales, $8.99 in manufacturer coupons, $11 in CVS coupons/ECBs, and $1.88 with a rebate (split with Walgreens).  I have a $10 ECB to roll this week. 

This week I bought $94.41 worth of groceries and household supplies for $27.23.  That is a savings of 69%!!!

LOL! I know – it's even more crazy b/c I really don't drink soda (hence buying all Sierra Mist – if I do drink it then it has to be caffeine free).

I'm thinking that with the baby getting close we will have lots of company and help visiting us so hopefully they like Sierra Mist! It should save us from going out and buying tons of soda before everybody gets here, which we usually have to do.
