Check out my savings for the week below:
I confessed yesterday on Facebook that I broke the #1 rule to saving money at the grocery store this week. There were lots of great guesses as to what the rule is and whole bunch of you guessed correctly:
I shopped HUNGRY. For some reason, I thought it was a good idea to skip lunch before heading to the store. This is never a good idea where I’m concerned. I went into the store with a relatively short list and somehow before I exited the store, there were items in my cart that never have made it in there before.
All that to say, I did not do real well saving money this week. I will add that I am still giving myself some grace during this newborn stage. So yes, that means buying some items that I don’t usually buy just for the sake of convenience.
But just keeping it real, y’all. (I did however score two packages of CoverGirl mascara, a Diet Coke 12-pack and a pack of gum for only $1.02 at CVS this week, so all hope for me is not lost!)
Savings from coupons and store sales: $44.35
- Giant: Spent $134.55. Saved $19.86.
- CVS: Spent $1.02. Saved $24.49.
Savings from ‘Free Money’: $10
- I redeemed some Swag Bucks for $10 in Amazon gift cards.
TOTAL SAVINGS THIS YEAR: $1781.34
