Kroger Trip: Savings of 56%
I mainly went to stock up on cheese...I bought 6 bags because they were right over $1 a bag. The Yosko's yogurt were an unplanned purchase, but I saw them on sale for $1 and right next to them were .75/1 coupons. .25 for yogurt, yes please! It's all about keeping your eyes open while at the grocery store.
Target Trip: Savings of 11%
Had to pick up some ingredients for our Valentines dinner at home. Check out the dessert we made here. :) Also, I was completely out of laundry detergent and spot remover...thankfully Target had a decent sale on those.
Publix Trip: Savings of 47%
I never buy coke, but it was free with a coupon My Coke Rewards sent me, so I picked that up. The Athenos greek yogurt was on sale for $1 and I had a $1 off coupon, so that was free. I discovered that Publix has a nice selection of frozen yogurt so I picked up their moose tracks flavor. Yum! Other than that, just a few basic items.
CVS Trip: Savings of 66%
Small trip to CVS to get free toothpaste and cheap face/body wash.
So far for February I've averaged 46% savings, spent $105.62 and saved $88.64. Since today is the 18th, I think I'm doing pretty good. I budget $200 a month for groceries/paper goods/household products/personal care products. I plan on stocking up at the Italian Sale at Publix this week so we'll see how I do. :)
