weekly spending review

I'm behind schedule with my review, for some reason I've been living in my own little time zone bubble that includes several days of Monday. I actually asked my husband this morning as he was leaving for work if it was Tuesday or Wednesday today- I'm glad that it's actually Thursday because this week was really dragging along otherwise. Anyways, here's the review:

I spent a ton of money. Seriously, about $61.98 in just a one week span! I saved $51.04 or so (I'm missing my FM receipt, so I'm not adding any savings from that trip). I do have $5.50 in RR for Walgreen's. I guess it's not that bad, I got tons of chicken, a 9lb turkey breast, a 16 lb. turkey and quite a few things I needed- but it's at least $11.98 more than I like to spend in one week!

On the plus side, my freezer, fridge, and pantry are all very well stocked so barring any amazing deals I think I'm going to take a shopping break (with the exception of dairy and fresh produce as we need it). Don't worry though, I'll still be here to share any awesome deals I find with you!


  1. Man I wish I could stock my house for $51...
    Prices in WA are killer.

  2. I know! (did you see that I'm also in WA?) It's actually not so hard once you build up a decent stockpile- on a good week I spend less that $50. I just bought a lot of meat this past week.
