This Week In Review: 11/1 - 11/7 (76% Savings)

I really didn't do a lot of grocery shopping this week.  I was actually waiting for double coupons to use with the ongoing General Mills/Betty Crocker promo at Albertsons, which will be included in next weeks review.  I also still have a decent food stockpile.  And, since I am fairly new to coupon shopping and buying in bulk I must admit I haven't invested in a large freezer yet, and my little one is stuffed!  I know I would be saving even more money by doing getting one, but we don't buy anything on credit and it hasn't been in the budget.  (I am getting desperate for one though after reading Money Saving Mom's awesome freezer cooking ideas.)  Buying a large freezer is high on my wish list, but unfortunately it might have to wait until after Christmas.  I did get to stock up on make-up and some personal care items at the drugstores this week.
