See all those groceries? We paid $19 for all of those! Our receipt said we saved $86, but that doesn't include the money saved on mark-downs. If I were to include those prices as well, it would have been around $100 saved. Of course, I would never pay $100 for those groceries, but it's still fun to realize the savings that using coupons combined with sales produces!
I was especially excited about scoring all of those Colgate toothpastes and toothbrushes for free as well as getting paid $2.50 per tub of baby wipes I bought. The Barbara's cereals were reduced to $2.05/box plus I had $1/1 coupons making them only $1.05/box–which is a great price in my book for organic, all-natural cereal!
If you have a Dillons nearby, you can see more details on the deals I scored and other deals here.
We also made a trip to Aldi earlier in the week to buy some more baking/cooking staples and a bunch of produce. I usually don't make more than one shopping trip per week, but I was so energized this week to bake that I decided to use some of my leftover grocery money from the last few weeks to stock up in order to completely stock our freezers.
So I spent $39 at Aldi this week, in addition to the $19 above for a total of $58 spent on groceries this week. I didn't quite make my $40-$45 goal I was shooting for, however, I used leftover grocery money from the last few weeks budgets so I'm still well under budget for the month of March.
And the good news? We now have about 20 dinners in one freezer for after the baby comes and another freezer stocked with baked goods for the next few weeks. Having our freezers well-stocked is certainly going to save us quite a bit of money over the next few months while I'm especially tired or lacking in energy. Instead of getting carryout or turning to more expensive convenience foods, we can just pull something out of the freezer!
