Weekly Budget and Savings Update

Total (in picture) =  $21.39

It was a big week! I did great at Price Chopper, but there were a few things I was hoping to get that they did not have. I can always get them next week. I finished off the week with a Costco run where I used a ton of the coupons they sent out this month.  The Costco stuff is not in the picture since I went on a different day. There were definitely some good deals there (and it should be enough for quite a few meals).
Price Chopper = $19.75

Yoplait Splitz FREE
Rotissarie Chicken FREE
10 Lipton Meals $1 each
8 Campbells Spaghetti O’s $0.12 each
2 Wishbone Salad Dressings $0.99 each

3 Candy Bars $0.42 each

The in store scanner gave me a $5/$15 so I added a few things to make it to the $15 limit. Since the soda was free after rebate and I was planning on getting that and the Purex; I needed to add another $4.01 in items to my cart to get $5 off. I also printed a $0.50/candy bar coupon so I bought three of those and some popcorn. Tax was $0.37. I saved $6.83 with CVS sales, $5 with a rebate, $5.50 using CVS coupons and $3 with manufacturer coupons. I received a $1 and $2 ECB to use next time.
