Super Savings Saturday - $70 restock





I have another three picture stock up run to show you today! Even more impressive - John took the kids and did this himself! Since I have this darn broken toe and it still needs to be elevated and iced, John had to brave the stores with kiddos in tow by himself. He did a great job!

A couple of the deals weren't the greatest, but we were out (oatmeal for one example) and I felt we
needed to get some in spite of no sale or not good sales. We did up the stock on meat and bought laundry detergent, milk, and juice. My plan is to put together menus for 2 weeks from this and what we have and then only buy milk and fill in some fruit on the $10 we have for the second week.

Here's what we bought:

Store #1: Total spent: $6.06
3 boxes Kraft Mac & Cheese @ $0.69 = $2.07
2 lbs green grapes $4.99 - $1 coupon = $3.99
Total Saved at store #1: $1

Store #2: Total Spent: $37.44
1 Betty Crocker Whipped Frosting $1
1 Betty Crocker White Cake Mix $0.75 - $0.75 coupon = Free
Cascadian Farms Cereal $3 - $0.75 = $2.25
2 Arm and Hammer Laundry detergent @ 2.99 ea = $5.98 - $1 coupon = $4.98
6 Progresso World Recipe Canned Soups @ $1 ea = $6 - $1.50 in coupons = $4.50

Grape Tomatoes $1.50
1 lb Strawberries $1.50
Smart Balance Spread $2.79
1 gallon Kemps Skim Milk $3.79
Total Saved: $18.48

Not too bad, I think. I spent $68.91 and saved $43.59.

I think we're set for meat for a while now too since we had chicken and shrimp in our freezer
from before and Mom and Dad bought us fish and beef. Check out our menu plan on Monday to see what we're eating this week.
