Weekly grocery update

December 7th, 2008 at 10:19 pm

No great progress or savings to report this week. I think I'm in a rut, although I did manage a 22% savings due to coupons.

Before coupons, total was $162.34. Coupon savings was $35.69, and the total after coupons was $126.65. Groceries & household totaled $57.32 ($93.01 - $35.69 coupons). Dog food totaled $69.33, with no coupons.

The average per week is now $135.10, down from $135.27.

I spent awhile last night and this morning scanning the sales flyers and organizing my coupons to see if I can do better this week matching them up. I had to chauffer SS to the store tonight, so I stopped in one of the stores on my list to score some deals and another one to get some basics. Between the two I saved 21% using coupons, but I've already started the week spending almost $33! I hope I can do better the rest of the week.

    Lizajane, do you use printable coupons or just those from the paper? It's fun trying to bring the grocery total down with coupons. It takes work with all the planning, but sure does pay off in the end. Have you ever been to www.thecentsiblesawyer.blogspot.com? She has a list of WalMart items that are free or almost free with coupons.

    frugalmom, I haven't checked it out, but I'll take a look. Thanks for the tip.
    I use newspaper, All You, and printable coupons. The newspaper ones are only when I happen to be going to town and buy one, so it's hit or miss on whether I have the coupons they all talk about.
