Weekly Shopping Trip--Savings $55.89

This week was just purchasing items that I needed to complete my week of meals.  Once again I did not use much in the way of coupons, I let the sales help me with my savings. 

The weather is turning nicer which means hubby and I like to get in the swing of entertaining so I also worked at getting items "in stock" for those special times. 

I also found several meat items on markdown this week!  I was able to get some Bob Evans sausage gravy & biscuits and some sausage links for 40% off each!!  Plus I had a coupon  for one of the boxes of sausage links to help sweeten the deal. 

Here is a breakdown of what was purchased this week...

Way to work the store deals. It is nice to do when the stock is running low.

Great job!
