January Shopping Trip #2

QFC: $6.47 spent, $6.98 saved (51%)
I used a $0.50 coupon on the strawberries and a FREE item coupon for the cupcakes (I won this but it didn't fit in my binder so I wanted to use it right away). The refried beans break my rules again, but were cheaper than going out for dinner which is what I had wanted to do on the day I bought them). I also bought 1lb imitation crab meat that had been marked down ($1.06), a 3 lb bag of clementines ($2.99- my QFC had a different brand, so no coupon) and a loaf of bread ($1.19). That brings my total for the week to $11.71 (with overall savings of 51%).

Honestly though we actually did spend more than that because the husband needed cans of soda for work, so we bought 3 at $2.66 each (Safeway) or $7.98 (with $9.99 savings). My store did not have the $0.88 avocados so I skipped that, although they would have been nice! We're still doing pretty well with the eating of out the pantry challenge- which is nice considering we're halfway through the month now!
