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 apologize for being late with this one.  I have been getting the garden and yard ready for the summer.  I just noticed this morning that I have a poison ivy rash from all my fun getting the garden ready.  Arghh!  Last week I was able to come in right at my budget goal of $60/week!  I also saved a whopping 74%, which is my highest savings percentage ever!  I was able to spend all my Catalinas from the Kraft 100-calorie Bites Deal (more on that here), thus making my savings percentage really high...  Enough rambling, here's how last week looked:
