Groceries This Week

This week for about $72. I got all of this:

$72 included some vitamin (liquid) I had to get for Koen this week, 2 packs of diapers, a ginormous pack of toilet paper, Tom's of Maine toothpaste (which hubby needs and there is NEVER a coupon for!), among lots of other items!

$70. is my budgeted amount for my family of 6. And the last few weeks I have spent under $70.

This weeks savings was also over $110.! I always like to see that I saved more then I spent! And I had 66 items. That is $1.09 per item. Not bad considering there are 2 packs of diapers, a large pack of TP, Koen's vitamins were $8, etc.

So, how did YOU do this week on groceries??? To see how I figure out the deals and save money each week, go HERE. To see all of the deals and their coupon match-ups, go HERE.

I love the way you set up your groceries for the picture.. very artistic.. You have really motivated me to save and I have been.. Coupons are good.. sales are good.. buying in bulk sometimes good.

Thank you!

Wow! I can't believe how much food you got. And I see soy milk, something we need and almost never find a sale on. Would love to hear some tips. I have a family of 6 and spend $400 to $500 a month.
