Saturday Shopping-Walmart

Made one more stop this Saturday. We went to Wal-mart to get new Blackberry phones and while I was there I picked up a few of the deals that I read about over at Money Saving Mom. I got the Vitamin Water FREE, the Olay 2-pack soap for $0.48 ea and the Johnson's swabs for $0.38 ea. Bananas $0.47.

I am definately done shopping for the next couple of weeks--I can fit anything else in my fridge or pantry! I told this to my family and I got the "Yea, sure Mom" look....

Check out other deals at Super Savings Saturday over at Money Saving Mom.

Don't miss Friday Finals over at Southern Savers.

Saturday Shopping-Target

I stopped by Target to pick up these items that I read about over at Money Saving Mom. The All detergent was a little more at my Target, but still a really good deal. I was thinking the cashier might give me a hard time because I was purchasing 6 items and I had ten coupons (I stacked Target and Manufacturer coupons), but she didn't say a word.

I got the All for $1.54 each and the Eggos for $0.62 each!

Check out Money Saving Mom--Super Savings Saturday to see other great deals.

Also, go see Friday Finals over at Southern Savers.

$80 Grocery Budget for Two Weeks

Savin' Big At Club Pub

This is a picture of my Publix shopping trip this week. I got all of this in 4 transactions and spent about $55. I had a total of about 70 items, so that was a really good trip. I also made a trip to Aldi's where I spent an additional $20. We are back on the cash envelope system, and I think it will help us to better stay within our budget. Pantry and freezer are full!

I am also planning a Target trip for the $0.99 All detergent and almost free Eggo's. And I might swing by Walmart for the free stuff only.
