SWSL Weekly Shopping Results 2-24-12 {& shopping linky}

by Admin on February 24, 2012

This week’s shopping trip was to Walmart and Kroger with Jenny!  I also found time to go to Walgreens this week for what I thought was a great deal on my husband’s favorite deodorant.  I went the day before the $3/2 Right Guard printable coupon came out, so I used my $1/2 coupon instead.  That always seems to happen to me.

My Mom was in town this week while my husband was out of town (actually out of the country).  Therefore there were a lot more fruits and veggies and a lot less meat and potatoes.  Luckily the local grocery stores were having a lot of great deals on produce to help me keep my costs down at Walmart.

Here is what I got:

At Walmart I spent $54.95 for $102.83 worth of groceries, a savings of 47%!
