My Week of Savings in Review 1/24 -1/30

I had another busy shopping week, but I think it was well worth it because I saved $248.98!  My total out of pocket was a little high at $110.55 (gasp), but there were so many great deals this week that I had to take advantage of!

   Pert and Sure were all FREE with coupons and RR's (not including tax)
I bought the oatmeal before I knew about the upcoming Quaker promo
Bobby pins were B1G1 Free:
Total Tans #1 $5.66 OOP + $4 in RR
 Total Tans #2 :$2.76 + earned $2 RR

Fred Meyer:
Kraft cheese promo: 50¢ each after Q's & $5 cat!
Finish: $1.29 each
International Delight: Free w/ coupon
Oranges: 33¢ lb
Romas: 99¢ lb
Clean & Clear: $1.99 w/coupon
Yogurt: 40¢, not rockin deal, but needed for lunches
Total: $17.12 + earned a $5 cat

Fred Meyer: Yes, I had to get more cheese!
Large bag of dog food not pictured
Total: $10.64 + earned $5 cat

Safeway: (sorry, no picture)
 5# hamburger, bag salad, bananas
Total: 63¢ after $7 in catalinas

This is where it gets expensive:
Wags #3: $20.53 , earned a $5 RR so diapers $4.32 each before tax
Babies R Us: $12 (saved 50% on organic baby food, hopefully the last I will need to buy)
Fred Meyer: $9.55 (nothing exciting, except everything on sale, no Q's)

Wags #4: $20.32 + earned $5 RR
Wags #5: Total 76¢ + $2 RR

Total $6 (Quaker Promo)
Fred Meyer: Ziploc Promo 
Total: $2.31 after $5 cat, + earned $2 cat
 I still have $9 in register rewards to spend this week too, but I paid close to that for coupons on
Ebay, so it kind of evens out!

I spent $314.95 this month, a little above my goal of $300. I am stocked up, so hopefully the month of February will reflect this in my spending. 

Total Savings for January: $706.72 or 69%!
I also received $49 in rebate checks from December!

Looks like some great shopping! I don't know how often you check Safeway's coupons but they have a new $2 off ranchers reserve beef wyb$10 coupon. I always print their meat coupons when they come out, they don't seem to stay up for long and you don't see meat coupons too often!

Thanks Maygan, I am always looking for a way to save money on meat! I am going to pay more attention to Safeway deals too. I love Fred Meyer for everyday low prices, but I am always so impressed how well you do at SFW!
