Total Spent: $45.98
Total Saved: $39.03
Not too bad, huh? I shorted myself out of $3 savings by forgetting to use 2 BOGO coupons that I had (don't know what I was thinking), but still, $39 worth of savings on foods we will eat is pretty durn good.
I think the best part was the turkey breast for $.68/lb. I do love me some turkey. Oh, and that milk? FREE!
My plan is to allow $50/wk for food, paper products, personal care items, and baby stuff (diapers and wipes). I am pretty sure that is a good number. Some folks say it is way too low, and others don't spend that much for a family of 4, so as long as I am in the middle I will call it good. Any $$ I don't use will be put into an envelope to use when there are exceptionally good sales that I wanna stock up on or weeks when I am short on cash.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
