Weekly Shopping Trip--Savings $37.96

This week, I did something unintentionally! I forgot to take my coupon folder with me when I went shopping!  I only needed a few items and there was only a couple of things that I needed with my coupons so it wasn't too bad.  However, not having my coupon folder made me think more on whether I really needed to get the item or if I just wanted it to stockpile.  I guess you even could say that I saved myself more money than what I actually did on paper by not getting items "just because".

Also with my pantry looking like this...
and my upright stand alone freezer looking about the same, I figured there wasn't much to get this week in the grocery department in order to have enough food to feed the family for the week.

So with that picture in mind, here is what I purchased this week to finish stretching what I already have on hand:


  • 2.28 lbs bananas $1.00
  • 1 lb baby carrots $1.29
  • 4 dozen eggs $4.46
  • 2 gallons milk $4.58
  • 2 lbs shredded hashbrowns $5.38
  • 3 boxes markdown bakery donuts $7.75
  • 3 loaves Aunt Millie's bread $2.00
  • 1 container Dean's moose track ice cream $2.79
  • 4 pkgs Eckrich smoky links $9.16
  • 2 loaves Coles garlic toast $2.00
  • 3lbs apples $1.00
  • 4 boxes pizza rolls $4.00
  • 2 bags sandwich bags $2.00
  • 2 cans Campbells tomato soup $1.18
Total OOP: $48.71
Total Savings: $21.19
Total without sales: $69.90

Family Fare: 
  • 2 pkgs flour tortillas $3.48
  • 1 gallon milk $2.49
  • 6 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breasts $9.99

I have to tell you....I AM JEALOUS!! I would LOVE to have a pantry area so I could stock pile like that. After the new year I am going to have to find an area I could do this.
