Savings this week

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Once again, I was able to keep my grocery bill under $100.00 this week.  My total prior to BOGO and sales was $155.68. I paid only $79.25 saving a total of $76.43.  In addition to my groceries I purchased two greeting cards at a cost of $4.75. 

Every time I think I am too tired or too busy to clip coupons and match up sale advertisements I remind myself that if I don’t take the time to coupon shop I am robbing my family of money that can be used for other things. Since we donate a lot of what we purchase I am also robbing my family of the chance to help others in need when I don’t take time to coupon shop.

I hope that some of my readers will do the same. (more…)
