Budget and Coupon Update thru Oct 16th

Total Spent = $115.84 not pictured

I did great this week.  I had $11 in ECB’s to roll and a $3/$15 coupon to use so I was able to buy some breakfast items at CVS.  I spent a decent amount at Costco for some great stuff. The lasagna gets us four dinners and I haven’t had Brie for a couple months now so I was pretty happy to get that and some multigrain crackers.  I didn’t take a picture of the Costco stuff since it was later in the week, but everything is listed below.  I am close (about $7 away) to hitting my budget this month, but it shouldn’t be a problem since we are really stocked up right now.
CVS = $0.87

2 Quaker Instant Oatmeal $0.50 each (Free after rolling ECB’s)
2 GM Cereals $2.30 each (Free after rolling ECB’s)
Brach Pumpkins FREE
2 Colgate Toothpaste $2.11 each (Free after rolling ECB’s)
Lemon Lime 2L Soda $1 (Free after rolling ECB’s)
Butter Cookies $3.99 ($0.81 after rolling ECB’s and using a $3/$15 coupon)

Tax was $0.05. I saved $9.06 using sale prices, $7.15 using manufacturer coupons, $3.99 using CVS coupons, and $11 using ECB’s. I received a $5.98, $1, and two $2 ECB’s to use next week.
Costco = $114.97

3 Gallons Milk $2.80 each

Tax was $5.71. I saved $70.45 compared to my grocery store prices and $8.50 using Costco coupons.
