Super Savings Saturday - $25 edition


We're back to a low grocery budget for a while since we've pretty much blown it for a few weeks. We've gotten some really good deals (especially on cereal!) but the budget is way out of whack - enough that I didn't even feel comfortable taking out any grocery money this week! I used the cash we had in the house leftover from our camping week plus a couple of extra dollars we had in our Recreation and Gas envelopes (I didn't take all the cash in the gas envelope since you never know what will happen with gas prices!). All total I had $27 for groceries this week.
Here's what we got:
Store #1:
1 large cantaloupe $1.50
Cucumber $0.50
Blueberries BOGO 2 for $3.99
Blackberries 1 at $2.50
Total Spent: $8.49
Store #2:
10 ct Mission Flour Tortilla $2
Sweet Corn (8 ears) $2
1 lb Carrots $0.79
Strawberries 2lbs $3
Store brand gallon skim milk (2) $4.98
1 dozen large store brand eggs $0.68
Sargento Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese $2
Total Spent: $15.45
Total Spent at both stores: $23.94
That means I have roughly $3 for the Farmer's Market tomorrow too! Enough for lettuce and maybe onions or green peppers. We'll see what they have!
What did you get this week? Head over to Money Saving Mom to share!

  1. I found your blog on money saving mom. Of course there's no way one could read all the great deals mamas are make but the refiner's fire caught my eye. Boy, did I feel the refining this week in the challenge to be a good steward of my $5.50 for groceries. Then I laughed when I read your blog about your camping week. That's where our money went this week. We chose to take $25 dollard from the $30ish I scraped together for groceries and take the kids to a state park. I have plenty enough to eat in the house although it may be "what's in the pantry" meals. :) thanks for posting.
