Updated coupon savings

June 13th, 2009 at 04:57 am

I just figured my grocery/dog expenses for the last 2 weeks, and updated the sidebar. Average per week is dropping! Smile I seem to have gotten lucky lately with great sales on dog food, so much so that I'll buy 2+ weeks worth at once. I ran out of Purina $7 checks (which I earn by turning in weight circles from the food), but I had a 15% off coupon at Petsmart that I used last week. I just sent in enough weight circles to get 10 more $7 off checks, but I'll probably need to stock up again before those get here. Timing is everything!

The grocery bill seems to have decreased also. I know I'm due for a bigger trip in the next week or so, since the last two weeks were very cheap. We're waiting on a part to see if it fixes our refrigerator, which went out last week. It's a pain, but I don't seem to buy as much stuff since we have no way to keep it cold. We've probably saved at least $10 from not buying milk & cheese. I do have some milk in the freezer, and sometimes take it out overnight to thaw so we can drink it in the morning. I know we could use a big cooler and buy a bag of ice every day to keep things cold, but we're getting by so I don't want to bother! If it was a quick trip to get ice and it wouldn't 1/2 melt by the time we got home, it might be different. I know, I know...put a 2nd cooler in the car and it won't melt...but I still don't want to bother!

    Great job with the coupon savings! I'm around $1300 in savings YTD myself - haven't updated the spreadsheet this week. Such a shame you "can't save money with coupons" isn't it? I hear too many people say that.

    I'm actually happy to be able to attack my stockpile of goodies and put together a care package for a local girl heading off to college. Her family has had a tough time lately and it feels good to be able to share what I have with them.

    Yes, good job on coupon savings. One other thing you could do with the milk is to buy small containers, like quart size, so that it does go bad before you have to drink it all. I hope you get your fridge fixed soon.
