Frugal Friday Report


On Friday of each week, I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending including how much I saved and savings percentage.  I am hoping to show how much I am saving and improving each week by using my new savvy shopping skills...

I went a little over budget at $63.54 this past week.  I was a big fan of the "10 for $10, Get 11th for Free" at Meijer and the "March to Savings Event" at Kroger, so I felt like I got quite a bit of food and still stayed pretty close to my budget.  Here's how this week looked:


Week # Start End Spending Savings Savings %
1 12/31 1/6  $    62.37  $   56.53 48%
2 1/7 1/13  $    59.15  $ 131.69 69%
3 1/14 1/20  $    52.91  $   94.17 64%
4 1/21 1/27  $    40.44  $   37.69 48%
5 1/28 2/3  $    97.22  $ 188.26 66%
6 2/4 2/10  $    51.74  $   81.17 61%
7 2/11 2/17  $    89.21  $ 104.29 54%
8 2/18 2/24  $    39.64  $   91.00 70%
9 2/25 3/3  $    56.41  $   69.49 55%
10 3/4 3/10  $    53.23  $   96.32 64%
11 3/11 3/17  $    63.54  $ 107.08 63%

And here's the chart:














                                                      



I spent a total of $63.54 this week and saved $107.08 (maybe more if I knew how much I saved at Save-A-Lot), for a savings percentage of 63%.

My favorite deals at Meijer this week include:  free Bagel Bites, free Green Giant Veggies (we were out of these at home), free Land O' Lakes butter, $1/bag Lays Natural Potato Chips and $1 bag Apples.  My favorite Kroger deals include: $0.50/box Annie's Organic Mac & Cheese, free Ronzoni Pasta and $1/bag Garden of Eatin' Organic Tortilla Chips.  You can find out more on these deals at Macomb Money Savers.
