This week's spending in review

I spent a little bit more then I usually would in week 2 (we get paid every 2 weeks) but a lot of it was stockpiling stuff. I think we're set on ice cream for months and have a decent amount of toilet paper. You can click the picture to get to the original post of each deal if you want the details. I spent a grand total of $36.88 for all of this (with $17 worth of giftcards and catalinas to start off next week):

PLUS: 30 more cans of AMP, 2 gallons milk, 2lbs grapes, bananas, a head of broccoli, Draino, another 5 pints Breyers, and 4 more pints Ben & Jerry's. All in all, I'd consider this a pretty awesome week's worth of shopping. I did a bad job of tracking my savings this week, but I am sure it is over the $350 mark.

I'm behind on my menu planning for next week, so I need to make some time to take inventory of what I have on hand tomorrow. I'll probably use my $10 giftcard to QFC for basic staples because it's close and there doesn't seem to be too much going on there this week. I really want to get in on the Dr. Pepper deal at Albies, so I'll use my catalinas to cut my out-of-pocket expense there. I'm hoping to do most of my menu from the stockpile, maybe we'll get some better sales next week.

  1. I'm jealous that you got the ice cream! I went the other night and had to get rain checks because they were out! You've got lots of good ideas here, keep 'em coming!
