Busy Week!

I've been really busy all week because, well it was just one of those weeks. I have been shopping but I haven't taken pictures of anything so bear with me.

-Saturday 6/13-
Ran to Kroger because I needed some ground beef to go with my Hamburger Helper meals that I fed to my in-laws. Yes, that's not the first time I mentioned them because I love them so much!

Ground Beef on sale - got 2 pounds for $3.90 (saved $2.47)
Pork Chops on clearance for $3.22
Beef round steak on clearance for $3.30
Oscar Mayer lunch meat buy 1 get 1 free. $5.29 for 2, had a $1 off when you buy 2 coupon, paid $4.29 for 2 pounds of lunch meat!
Coffeemate $3.49, had a $1 off coupon, paid $2.49
Huggies Little Swimmers sprayable sunblock on sale for $6.99, had a $2.00 off coupon, paid $4.99. It cost less than the creamy goop that was Kroger brand!
Pineapple on clearance for $0.99
Mini watermelon on sale for $1.97

Cost before discounts & coupons = $40.32
Saved $14.78
Paid out of pocket $25.54
37% savings!

-Sunday 5/14-

Axe shower gels and shampoos were on sale at Walgreens buy 1 get 1 1/2 off. I had 10 coupons for the shampoos. My fiance LOVES the Axe products, so I figure that for a little while he can use the sampoos as body wash too. I know I do that when I find a scent I like in shampoo that I can't find in body wash.

10 Axe body washes: before the sales and coupons, $55.99, after the sales $44.93, after the coupons $24.93
Something I got for Dale for Father's day on clearance for $1.29 (it's totally his style and not the only thing he's gonna get)
Vaper bath on clearance for $0.82
Gerber first foods on clearance for $0.35 (as I said before, I throw a jar of this in with stuff like the aforementioned Hamburger Helper to add some veggies to it)

Cost before Axe discounts (because I'm not sure of the regular prices on the clearance items) $47.39
Paid out of pocket $28.85
61% savings!

-Monday 5/15-
Needed something for lunch, so I headed to Randall's since that's the closest grocery store to my workplace.

Newman's Own Salad Dressing - $3.39 regular price, on sale for $2.19, $1.00 off coupon, paid $1.19
Sweet Butter Blend lettuce - $3.49 regular price, on sale for $2.99
Budding beef - $0.89

Cost before discounts = $7.77
Paid $5.07 for 2 days worth of lunches. You sure can't do that at McDonalds!
35% savings!

$59.46 spent for the ENTIRE week. Without the coupons and savings it would've been $95.48. Talk about slashing the budget!
