Here are my weekly grocery and drug store shopping totals for the week of 9/25 - 10/1/13. They include how much I would have spent without sales and coupons, how much I saved and how much I actually spent. How did you do this week?
Subtotal before sales and coupons: $180.96
Total saved: $132.21
Total paid: $48.75
I did not do much shopping at all last week. My totals would have been higher but I went all the way to Cary on Sunday for a class my daughter takes and forgot my purse! I usually shop while she is in class, but not that day.
My weekly budget is $80/week so I was well under budget last week. I plan to do a little more meat buying this week with some rain checks and current sales.
Last week, I shopped at Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Target and CVS.
How did you do last week?
To figure out the percentage you saved:
Take the total amount saved divided by the total cost of the products before sales and coupons.
