Friday Savings and Monday Savings

I have to combine both days of savings again because it was a busy dance competition weekend. So, anyway, here's my savings:

On Friday, at Walmart, I only spent $47.36 and my parents came over for dinner. I just tried to use meat I already had, to keep the costs down. I only had $2 in coupons.

At Vons I spent $18.38, and saved $30.99, which is 63%! That was great! Keebler cookies were on sale for $1.65, Skippy for $1.49, Dole juice $1.88, Cheerios and Frosted Flakes $1.49 + $1 and $.55 coupons which were doubled, Caprisun $1.49, Kraft mac and cheese $.49 + $.55 coupon which was doubled, and Gogurt and Trix $1.99 + $.80 coupon which was doubled. I love those double coupons! I also received free rice and frozen vegetables because of coupons I received from Vons, in the mail.

At Ralphs I spent $7.67 and saved $8.19, just about 50%. Broccoli was $.99, Cool Classics ice cream cones $2, red grapes $.88/pound, and red apples $.99/pound. Not too bad of a deal, and most of it was nutritious too!

On Saturday, at CVS, I spent $3.58 and saved $24.87, which is 86%! Now, that's the best deal I've ever had. Gold Emblem pasta was $.88(charity), Goldfish were buy one get one free, Ajax $.99(charity), Ban $2.99 + $2 extra bucks for next time +$1 coupon(so it was like getting it for free), and Suave kids $2 + $2 extra bucks for next time. I also had $15 worth of extra bucks that I had earned last week. 12 items for about $3, not bad!

On Monday, at Smart and Final, I spent $6.79 and saved $4.06. Their 10 lb. rice is always at an everyday low price of $3.79, cantaloupe was $.33/pound, white onions $.50/pound, and nectarines $.69/pound.

At Albertsons, I spent $14.69 and saved $11.06. Strawberries and raspberries were buy one get one free, Chef Boyardee, Hunts ketchup, and Hunts pudding were buy 10 for $.80 each(some for charity), and honeydew for $.69/pound.

I know I bought a lot of fruit this week, but not all of it was ripe yet, so if they don't all become ripe at the same time, I think we'll be able to finish it all before it goes rotten. I hope!
