Frugal Fridays ~ Week of 1/22 Shopping Trip

Finally, Perdue chicken breasts went on sale this week so I went a bit over budget stocking up on that.  It hasn't been on sale for over 3 months so it was worth stocking up.  If it wasn't for the chicken this would have been a very low week. 

At CVS I was able to purchase 2 Tom's Deodorants (aluminum free deodorant), 1 Cascade dishwasher detergent, 1 mascara, 3 reeses cups, 1 bottle makeup remover and cinnamon.  That's pretty good for less than $9 :)

At Wal-Mart I had to pickup bananas and newspapers.  I'm calculating my newspapers into my grocery budget because I buy them for the coupons. :)

I actually photographed my Publix trips. :)  I was happy to save so much at Publix when the majority of my purchase was meat and produce! :)

Again, I buy these taco bell meals for the tortillas and taco shells, not for the nasty chemicals :)

My savings this week were 51% which is awesome since I bought about $25 in chicken! :)  I have a feeling next week will be a light week.


  1. Meat can easily throw your savings off. You did great though, and you sure got a lot for your money.

  2. Hey - when chicken is on sale you stock up!!! And you are right it has been a LONG time since it has been on sale!

  3. Great savings all around. I loved the Tom's Deodorant deal. Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.
