Super Savings Saturday - $12 Budget

I Did it! I'm so proud of myself!

I acutally walked into a store, bought nothing that wasn't on my list and walked out WITH CHANGE in my purse! Whoo hoo!!!

Since I had $12 for this week, that's a major feat - considering I needed milk, fruit and baking powder and hoped to score a few other good deals along the way.

So.... here's the loot:

Store #1: Cub Foods
Total Spent: $5.96
Kraft Mac and Cheese: 4 boxes x $0.25 = $1 (Store coupon pricing)
Green Giant 5lbs Russet Potatoes: 1 x $0.98 = $0.98 (Store coupon pricing)
5lb bag Harlson Apples: 1 x $3.98
Store #2: Rainbow Foods
Total Spent: $4.63
Gallon Roundy's Milk: 2 x $2.19 = $4.38
Roundy's Chunk Cheese: 2 x $0.99 = $1.98
Roundy's Chunk Light Tuna in Water: 1 can x $0.79 = $0.79
Roundy's Baking Powder: 1 can x $1.19 = $1.19
2.95 lbs Bananas x $0.55/lb = $1.62
Bar S Franks: 2 x $0.68 = $1.32 - $1/2 coupon = $0.32
Minus Catalina for $3.50
Total Spent: $10.59 (Leaving me $ 1.41 in my purse!)

Even better: Total Saved: $12.25 (Sales and coupons combined!)
Not bad if I do say so myself! I usually don't do that good!
