I did all my shopping for the week last night, so I thought I would share my finds with you!
My purchases differed a little bit from my original lists, mostly at Walgreens where the items I planned to buy weren't in stock!
But here is a look at what I did buy.My trip to CVS...
Clean & Clear Foam Cleanser ($3.99)
2 Fresh Express Salad ($3.69/ea)
2 Double Packs of Smart Balance Butter ($2.89/ea)
2 Kraft Mayo ($4.99/ea)
2 Ziploc Bags ($2.79/ea)
15 Bean Soup ($2.39)
Napkins 400ct ($2.89)
All this would normally cost $39.49
But I got it all for just $18.84!
Total Amount Spent: $28.22
Total Amount Saved: $47.13
We are trying to use the "envelope system" to help with our budgeting. We usually budget $250/month for groceries. This month, we are trying to bring that down to $200/month by spending just $50/week on groceries ($40) and toiletries ($10). I'm hopeful we can get it down further than that, but I didn't want to start too low and get frustrated.
So after my shopping trip, here is what we have left for the week:
I hope you enjoyed seeing my purchases this week! Let me know if you have any questions on how I did it - I'd love to help you save some money too!
