This week, I was able to start collecting a few food items for Drake's upcoming birthday party (yikes!)...like a great deal on soda and chips at CVS.CVS: spent $3.56, saved $43.79
Walgreens: spent $5.81, saved $60.16! (91% savings!!!)
My subtotal on one transaction was actually -$.04! I've never seen that before! (There are 2 boxes of Special K missing from the picture, too.)Meijer: spent $10.21, saved $13.02
Target: spent $11.58, saved $19.50
Weekly Total: $31.16, saved $136.47! (81% savings)
This is my best week ever! I might also note that if you've been watching these posts, you haven't seen me purchase meat (aside from frozen chicken breasts quite a while back). In July, we purchased a 1/4 beef which has turned out to be one of the best things. Not only do you pay a lot less (about $1/pound), but the meat tastes a lot better and it's readily available. If you are wondering how much meat that really was, we got 47 pounds of ground, about 12 roasts (they were cut pretty small since it's just the two of us...well, and Drake), quite a few steaks and some other random meat.
