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...

Well vacation week was a bad week for me.  No coupons and food at grocery stores in the Outer Banks is outrageous!  Last week was a decent week though:

Ouch!  That week on vacation was NOT good!  But we had a fun time and I feel okay about it because that's one of the reasons we need to save - vacations...  I spent $184.65 and saved $125.12 for a savings precentage of 40%.  Last week, I spent $48.86 and saved $98.26 (67%).

My favorite deals for last week were:
  • Old Orchard Juice, 64 oz bottles: $0.17/each at Meijer
  • Pop-Secret Microwave Popcorn, 3 ct: $0.58/each at Meijer
  • Reynold’s Wrap Aluminum Foil, 80 sq ft: $1.00/each at Meijer
  • Chi-Chi’s Salsa, 16oz:  $0.49/each at Meijer
  • Kroger block or shredded cheese, 8oz: $0.70/each at Kroger
I found out about these great deals at Bargains to Bounty
