Before I show you my pictures and give you a breakdown of my shopping trips today, I need to tell you about my amazing Nana and Papa. They were passing through Chattanooga this weekend so they came to stay with us for two nights.
Tonight, Nathan and I had a birthday party to go to - Nana and Papa stayed at our house and cleaned! Laundry, vacuuming, dishes and bathrooms! I am so grateful and blessed! I have not had the energy to clean up the house - like a good house cleaning so this was a HUGE blessing!
We made a stop at Walmart (gifts for the birthday girl, nana and papa needed food for the semi-truck and we picked up a couple goodies - valentine's candy and cookies) and Aldi. I do not have a picture of what we got a Walmart since it was mostly a birthday gift but we spent about $7 on the goodies.
The picture above is from our grocery shopping trip to Aldi. I didn't need to get much - which is good because we went a little over our budget but I am okay with that. :D I would rather go over and get healthy food for my growing family. Here is a breakdown:
- wheat bread 1.29
- whole milk 3.49
- 5 grapefruits .95
- oranges 1.29
- cheese 2.19
- red grapes 1.58
Total Spent: $10.79 plus tax
I should have bought bread at Walmart but I totally forgot. They have white bread for .88 and wheat bread for .98 - they are even larger loaves which is awesome. Not a big deal though.
Now I was really excited about my shopping trip to CVS. Nathan let me run in tonight at 8:15 to get this particular deal since it was our present for Nana for helping with our house.
AND I just found out that my Papa cleaned up my garden - it still had dead plants in it. I know I should have gotten this done in the early fall but taking care of two little girls during the day does not really give me that time. lol So thankful and again I am blessed!
Here is the breakdown for this shopping trip:
- 3 One Touch Ultra Mini Meters 9.99 each
Used (3) $10 off coupons - my wonderful sister in law mailed these to me!
- took off 29.97
Total Due: 0.00 - just paid tax -
Total Saved: $59.97!!!! or 100%
*** Plus my Nana's doctor will give her a prescription for the test strips which her insurance covers 100% - SO FREE AGAIN! I was super excited about this!
How did you do this weekend? I would love to hear about your deals!
