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.
