Stocking Up With Savvy Coupon Lady: Weekly Totals

by Kimberly on December 18, 2011

I had another very busy week. I can hardly believe we are only a week away from Christmas! Is that possible? I didn’t do any shopping at CVS or Walgreens this week. We did get some items at Sam’s Club. There are only a couple of grocery items I still purchase there. We still get our Protein Powder, Protein Drinks, Protein Bars (these only when our stockpile from sales runs out) and Boneless skinless Chicken Breasts. This is rarely on sale up in my area, so I found the cheapest price that I can buy bulk at is Sam’s Club for this (but I only get this there when we are out and there aren’t any other deals available). Other than that…we just go there now for our cell phone service needs, eye exams and gas for our car. I will be doing my Albertsons Shopping trip later today, so the amount spent there will go on next week’s ‘Weekly Totals’ post.

Here is a List of everything I stocked up on this week, and how much I spent and saved. I definitely spent more than usual because of our Sam’s Club and Publix ‘Splurge’ Trips.

I also Used (2) $5 off $30 Purchase Winn-Dixie Coupons (from Enjoy the City booklets)

Total Spent At Publix this Week: $78.85
Total Saved At Publix this Week: $145.84


Items We bought at Sam’s Club Week of 12/11/11:

(1) Case of Premier Protein Ready Made Drinks, $17.58
(2) Packs (3 boxes in each pack) of Pure Protein Bars, $17.98 each
Total Spent At Sam’s Club: $63.54


Items We bought At Winn-Dixie Week of 12/11/11:

(4) Dole Classic Romaine Salad bags, Buy 1 @ $1.99 Get 1 Free – Used two $2/2 Dole Salad Coupons
Total Spent: $1.98 (Makes them $0.99 each!)
Total Saved: $9.98


Grand Total Spent This week: $144.37 (YIKES!)
Grand Total Saved This Week: $155.82
Total Percentage Saved this week: 52%

I’m actually pretty happy with the percentage saved since we bought so many items that we normally don’t buy and they didn’t have coupons! Now, because of my big spending this week and to attempt to still stay within our monthly budget ($450per month -with 6 in our household), I am going to try and get very little this next week. (I’m already at $342.90 this month) I will NOT be shopping at CVS or Walgreens again this week, to help with this. It helps that Publix’s next weekly ad won’t begin until 12/26, so there also isn’t a new ad to shop there this upcoming week. :-) I’m normally around $100 under budget each month, so it’s hard for me to see me reaching my budget limit.
