Super Savings Saturday


Not pictured due to consumption or my forgetfulness:
Three more chocolate bunnies, one more bag of hershey's bliss chocolates, three bags target brand fruit snacks, one more tube of aveeno, one more gallon of water, three boxes of tissue, one frozen popsicle maker and four bottles of sobe life water

So this week I feel like I got way more for my buck, but I did go over a bit. Only $1.81 though! Not bad. It has been fun keeping track of what I am spending. Before coupons, sales and extra bucks my grand total was $283.56. My total out of pocket expense was $81.81. That is a savings of 72%! Now my goal, in conjunction with saving money on groceries, is to plan a weekly menu that I can stick with. Right now I am planning my menu for the following week based on what I have in stock and what I picked up during my shopping this week. Still working on that one though. Have a great week! Anyone else have any super savings ideas they want to share? Please do. I am always looking for new and helpful ideas!

Holy Cow! You did awesome. I am also loving all of my coupon savings lately. It has become a game for me and I now hate buying things at regular price. Keep it up!
