If you saw the picture of my empty fridge yesterday, you can understand why I am feeling so much pressure to stretch our $50 budget this week! I have no choice but to make more than one stop and to only pick up the very best deals. Of course, I am not only keeping value in mind but nutrition.
I did pretty good tonight! My overall savings was 63%.! I spent $19.58 pre-tax and saved $31.00. I achieved this number buy combining sales, manufacturer's coupons and coupons for a fundraiser store coupon book that someone gave to me. (Thanks again, Aunt Carol!)
Here is what I got:
1 Jumbo pack of Huggies
1 box of Cheerios (free)
1 box of Nabisco mini saltines
2 gallons of Ocean Spray Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
1 dozen organic eggs
1 gallon of hormone free whole milk
1 gallon of hormone free chocolate milk
1 half gallon of Edy's ice cream
4.25 lbs of oranges
6.25 lbs of grapefruits (free)
While a 63% savings is not my highest yet, I'm pretty impressed by it considering my purchase included a good amount of produce, organic and hormone free goods and the worst budget breaker of all -- DIAPERS!
