Frugal Fridays ~ Week of 2/26

I didn't plan on doing much shopping this week and I really didn't, but my total seems pretty high.  I took advantage of Publix's Buy Theirs Get Ours free promotion on organic items by purchasing organic salsa and organic balsamic vinegar.  It is hard to find a good deal on balsamic vinegar, especially organic. The floss, rice, and bread were all free with coupons.  I spent close to $15 on just produce. Gah.  Can't wait for the farmer's market this summer!

Publix Trip 50% Savings

CVS Trip 92% Savings

I don't have pictures of what I bought at Wal-mart and Target because they were random trips for essentials such as toilet paper, coffee filters and sour cream (yes, this is essential) so I just winged it.  I am so glad it is Friday night and I can sleep in until 9 AM tomorrow because we are on spring break.  Hallelujah!

February 2011 Totals

I spent $212.36
I saved $262.10
Which means if it weren't for savvy shopping,
I would have spent $474.46 for the exact same items!
My average savings for February 2011 was 55%


  1. Fantastic weekly savings!! Do you have an Aldi nearby? They have great prices on produce. The Aldi Spot is blog dedicated to saving money at Aldi if you do have one nearby.

    Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.

  2. Good work!
