A Lot for Less

Thursday, October 15, 2009 |
Yesterday I forgot to post my A Lot of Less post! On Saturday I got up early and went to hit a couple of last weeks sales. I hadn't shopped in about 2 weeks so we were in need of some milk, eggs and bread desperately. I also stocked up on a few sale items and other items I needed for some upcoming family get togethers and play dates.
I did end up going to 3 different stores, but I actually enjoyed getting out of the house with out my little ones for a couple hours. I planned on only going to one, but there were no lines anywhere and I was going super fast. I hit all 3 stores in 1 1/2 hours! I ended up with all the stuff below:

Transaction One at Albertsons:
14 boxes of Ronzoni Pasta
2 boxes of Trans Rice
4 boxes of Captain Crunch Cereal
6 boxes of Quaker Chewy Bars
1 5lb bag of sugar
2 gallons of Welchs Juice
2 boxes of Barbers Stuffed Chickens
2 Steam fresh Frozen entrees
2 Canisters of Wet Ones Wipes
3 Hawaii's Frozen Juices
2 dozen brownies in the bakery markdown section for $2.99

I Spent: $29.14
I Saved: $100.07

Transaction Two at Maceys:
3 bags of Tortilla chips
2 Hunts Ketchup
4 Boxes of Popcorn
2 Sweet and Sour Sauces
3 cans of Nalley's Chili
1 Panda Express Orange Chicken Sauce
12 cans of Progresso soup
4 boxes Little Debbie Cupcakes
1 package Sara Less hamburger buns
1 package Pillsbury bake and serve pumpkin cookies
2 dozen eggs
10 yogurts
2 cool whip toppings
1 package tortillas
2 packages string cheese
1 package of Pork Chops
2 lbs bananas
1 head of broccoli
1 package baby carrots
1 head of lettuce
4 yellow onions
1lb Resier macaroni salad
1 package rolls

I Spent $42.36
I Saved$37.54

I could have price matched my Macey's trip at Walmart, but I really like Macey's produce and meat so I just ran into Walmart for just a couple other items.
Transaction Three Walmart
4 packages Toilet paper
4 tubs of Huggies flush able wipes
1 package Jello Pudding Cups
4 gallons of milk
1 summer sausage
1 loaf of bread
3 packages Sara lee lunch meat
3 cans Rotel tomatoes
1 box of corn dogs
4 season all salts

Spent $21.10
Saved: $21.13

My Weekly Totals Came to:
Spent: $92.60
Saved $159.37

This wasn't the greatest week, but there were a few things that we needed to have. I still stayed within my budget of $100 (I hadn't shopped in two weeks). I can't complain, but I am glad not every week requires multiple stores and not a ton of savings. I am glad to know my pantry and storage room are stocked up for many weeks to come. How have you been doing?

I'm not doing too good! I'm getting frusturated, because I spend all this time printing coupons, clipping them, printing my list and I get to the stores and they are out of everything! What do I do just get rainchecks for everything? Also, that doesn't work when stores like albies is doing the buy x amount of items get x in return, does it? I need to at LEAST save the cost of my newspapers to break even and it's just not happening :-( HELP!!

I usually do really good but I can't get my newspapers to even get the coupons and The Herald is not doing anything about it so I am really disappointed. This system really works if you get your coupons..
