Busy Day - Lots of Shopping while Saving Money!

I did something that I normally never do in one day but I had deals ending today and the coupons were expiring. Also, my best friend Nina was with me so it was lots of quality time together. 

What did I do? I went shopping at 6 different stores. It was crazy but tons of fun. Here is a look at what I got!

Total Spent: $10.08 plus tax 

Total Saved: $54.96 or 85% 

Publix Shopping Trip

This makes me so happy! I got a few Easter gifts for Hailey, birthday presents for other children and some games we can play as a family. I also got food for us to eat! haha I love that I can add to my stockpile while saving lots of money!

{Our grocery budget does not include baby items or toiletries.} 


How did you do this weekend? I would love to hear! 


  1. You shopped Target, right? :) I got a few toy deals too. Nothing like your savings but I got some awesome gifts for kids' Birthdays in the family.

    1. Yes, the games were from Target. They didn't have everything that I wanted to get but I was okay with that. I liked what I got.

      That is great that you were able to get some gifts! I never really thought about stockpiling on birthday gifts but it makes a lot of sense!
