January 11th Spending (and Savings)

Total spent...$49.32 on groceries.

Actually $1.99 was spent at Walgreen's before we went grocery shopping. We got a box of Chex Mix bars (if you haven't tried these yet your missing out!) and 2 bags of cough drops. We saved $3.98, so that's like 200% savings!!!

We did some serious stocking up on food. I heart Cheerios. They were on sale for 3/$6, and I had a coupon for $2/5, making the purchase of 5 boxes only $8. There was also another sale that if you bought 8 qualifying items you automatically got $5 back. Since we already had 5, we got 2 boxes of Quaker Chewy bars (which hubby takes to school for snack/lunch) for $4 with a coupon, and a canister of Quick Oats, for $.90 with coupon. Making the purchase of 8 items only $6.90.
We spent $47.33, and saved $34.28.

I added a new bar to the side. I'm going to keep track of how much we save this year at food and drug stores. Only 2 weeks in and are almost at $50. My goal is to save $500, but it looks like we might be able to save even more!
