I had an absolute blast shopping at Kroger tonight. It is currently 11:49pm and I just finished eating a grilled cheese that Corey so graciously prepared for me for a late night snack...I really worked up an appetite hunting down the deals!!! Bethany went with me just for the fun of it...is that sick or what?! ha ha! JK! I would totally go with her too! Except..she is currently banned from grocery shopping since she brought her enormous stockpile to join with her mom's stockpile and still bought more stuff this week for their pantry!!
So, she got her "shopping high" with me tonight! It was great! We left about 9pm, it's only a 15 minute drive, and we were on our way home at 11pm. An hour and a half of leisurely, uninterrupted, bargain hunting!
I was pretty nervous when I got up to the register because I had a very full cart! But, it was great again! Here's the breakdown:
Store sales : $ 47.00
Coupons: $ 24.40
Total Savings: $71.40
Final Total: $83.50
Grand Total for the week:
Total regular price groceries: $221.88
Total Store Sales: $77.48
Coupons Used: $32.50
Total Savings: $109.98
Total Spent: $111.90
My savings were pretty much at about 50%. I know there are people who do way better.....but....I am pretty proud! And, I am pretty sure that with 3 gallons of milk in my fridge, 2 dozen eggs, and lots of other stuff, we may can even skip next week altogether! (Though I am not sure I can pass up the weekly thrill! ha ha!)
