I skipped posting Super Savings Saturday last week because I was still trying to catch my breath and recover from our garage sale. So here's what we've purchase in the way of groceries in the last 2 weeks:
Week 1 our local grocery store was running their Double Coupon promotion so I stopped by there to pick up a few good deals. We then discovered later that night that we were entirely out of diapers and our shipment from Amazon.com hadn't come in yet (I usually purchase the majority of our diapers through Amazon using Swagbucks). So my husband made a quick run to the store for diapers.
Our total for groceries last week was $26.15
This week, we hit Dillons and Target and bought all of the items pictured above for $30.81. But we also got back $10 in Target gift cards. (See more details on the Target deals in this post here.)
I'm considering hitting Target one more time this week in order to roll those gift cards and buy more Edy's ice cream and Special K bars. We love ice cream at this house–especially for $0.50 per tub–but I'm wondering if having all that ice cream around might counteract the good thing I've got going in the weight loss department here?! (By the way, I've now lost 5 pounds in two weeks and I'm pretty confident that it is a direct result of drinking the Acai Juice!)
In case you're wondering where the produce is in these pictures, we were the recipients (again!) of more fresh fruit and veggies from friends who had some excess. In addition, we've been eating some of the frozen fruit and veggies we have which need to be used up.
And don't forget that I shop using the Buy-Ahead Principle so we're definitely not just living off the food pictured above for two weeks–otherwise that'd be a pretty sorry diet!
I'm excited that we're underbudget again this month. I'm trying to set aside a little extra grocery money every week to make another bulk purchase and it looks like that's going to be feasible quite soon. Now my problem is just settling on exactly what that bulk purchase will be as my head is swirling with ideas! Stay tuned for more details, as they unfold!
