This week I saved a whopping $270.89 or 75% on my groceries and personal care items! My total out of pocket was $66.32. I am still building my stockpile, which is absolutely necessary to saving money! I got lots of free salsa (here, and good through Feb. 2nd!), canned goods and cheap creamer this week. I'm a big believer in buying store brand items in order to save money too. I also love great deals, like the Kashi, when I find them! It was a great week at Walgreens to boot. Here's what I got:

It is really motivating to see how much I am saving and I am loving the new savings tracker I downloaded from The Coupon Project. I keep mentioning it because it is a really handy tool to see how all my hard work is paying off. I have already saved $254.97 this month, that's an average of 72%! Woohoo!
How are you doing? I would love to hear about it!
