Stop and Shop - $17.34
I'm targetting $240 for my March Grocery Spending. My shopping trip at Stop and Shop last week was a bit frustrating and more costly than I had hoped - but this week made up for it. By using the 4 Dollar Doubler coupons in the S&S Flyer and 5 $1.00 manufacturer coupons on loss leader items I did a little stock up on items that my family likes. I also returned $5.00 dollars in bottles and cans. My S&S total before coupons and savings was $38.34 after a savings of $21.00 I only spent $17.34 for the items pictured above.
I also shopped CVS this week for sandwich bags (BOGO 50% off), Easter Candy ($3 ECB off $10 purchase), Fusion Razor ($4 ECB and $4 MC), Oral B Tootbrush ($4 ECB), Gillette Body Wash (on sale and $2 MC). My spending at CVS after executing three transactions (not including my prescription) came to $16.18 - quite a bit of which was actually the Easter candy.
So here's where my budget stands as of this morning:
BUDGET - $240
SPENT - $110.79
REMAINING - $129.21
I'm planning an Aldi trip today with a goal of spending less than $40. That will leave me with about $90 to get through the rest of the month. I think I can pull it off. Now as far as the rest of our budget....well I'm working on that one. Eating out is going to come in a bit over but I'm letting it since two of those outings are related to my birthday. I figure if anyone deserves not to cook a few nights it's the mom right???!!
