Frugal Friday Report

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

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day outside (at least in Metro-Detroit area).  I had a pretty good week again last week and was able to keep my spending under my $60 budget!  Wahoo!  And I am still able to feed my family! ;)   Here is what my week looked like:

I had my highest savings percentage ever at 71%!!!  I spent a total of $49.01 and saved a whopping $120.33!  I didn't buy any pricey items like meat or pet supplies, so that helped.  Plus I snagged some pretty great deals.

Here were my favorites from last week:
  • $0.49 bottles of Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner at Rite Aid (from Coupon Crazy Chrys)
  • $0.50 bottles of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing, plus free head of lettuce wyb 2 at Meijer
  • *free* Greenworks Cleaning Products at Meijer
  • *free* Cottage Doubles at Meijer
  • *free* reusable grocery bag at Kroger
  • $0.49 Kraft Mac-n-Cheese 5-packs at the Meijer Super Sale, plus each 5-pack had a coupon for a free box of Roarin' Waters on it!  This comes out to $0.10 per box(or less considering the free drinks)!
All these great grocery deals were found at Bargain to Bounty, Thanks Jolyn!
