Friday Finals: Saved $55

I've taken the last few weeks off from shopping aside from trips to the Farmer's Market. The sales just haven't been terrific.

This week, I took the opportunity to stock up on soda in preparation for 4th of July festivities.


I spent $35 pre-tax and came home with:

13 bottles of soda @ 50 cents each
margarine
5 cat treats @ 50 cents each
strawberries
organic vanilla ice cream
2 cans chili
2 cans mandarin oranges
frozen veggies
4 boxes of cereal
2 boxes granola bars
12 boxes of pasta @52 cents each

Not too bad, I guess.

I really splurged this week since we didn't really *need* the snacky foods. I ended up being coupon fairy as I had many coupons that were expiring tomorrow. I just didn't need 20 boxes of pasta right now!

  1. yeah, 20 boxes of pasta would have been a lot! Even 12 is a lot. But pasta lasts a long time, so no biggie.

    I always try to buy cans of soda when they reach 33 cents or less per can. And it's the best when they're 25 cents a can! So when it's that cheap, I just stock up. Then I don't ever have to buy them at full price.

    Also, just a side note, since you commented in June, I wanted to give you a heads up because the $50 giftcard giveaway at onehouseonecouple is almost over, and the 30th is the last day you can leave comments on June posts to stack up your points so you can hopefully win! Good luck Micki! And thanks for coming over :)

    Hope you have a nice weekend!
