This Week In Review 10/25-10/31

I have been trying to stock up when items are on sale, so I didn't need as much this week. I have plenty of frozen meat and dairy. I also have a closet full of "personal care" items like shampoo, razors, diapers, and toothpaste that I have stocked up on when they were at rock bottom prices. I spent $10 of my grocery bill on Christmas presents. I also spent $10 extra stocking up on more beans and canned tomatoes. Considering how poor the sales were this week I am happy with how I did!

Weeks Total: $66.25, deducting $10.00 spent on Christmas presents.
Average Savings: 78%

Here are my figures:

Amount Spent: $1.00
Amount Saved: $33.62
Percent Saved: 97%
Highlights:  I used double coupons to get 2 free bags of Halloween candy, and spent $1.00 for two tubs of caramel dip.   I used a $10 off coupon from a previous shopping trip to get 5 lbs. of free chicken breast.

Amount Spent: 77¢
Amount Saved: $9.98
Percent Saved: 92%
Highlights: Got Free Kashi and Rimmell Mascara for 49¢ because the cashier gave me overage for my cereal coupons.
Lowlights:  This was an unplanned trip and I didn't have all my coupons with me.  I was waiting for my oldest daughter who was at Plato's Closet, so I ran in and impulse shopped!  I should have saved my $3 off Kashi coupons to use at Fred Meyer. There were also items I could have got if I had all my coupons.  Oh well!

I made a lot of trips to Fred Meyer which is unusual for me!  I usually do it all on Saturday mornings.  How did you do?
