I was hoping for more like a $5 dollar challenge but I couldn't resist a few extra sales so I ended up spending: $14.53 borrowing $10 from next week's grocery budget. Considering what I got I'm not unhappy about it:
I saved: $66.52
With the exception of the cat food all items were $0.50 or less. The right bites were on sale 2/$5.00 and I had 9 $1.00 off 1 coupons that doubled to $2.00 off. Coupons were in this Sunday's paper.
That deal wasn't on any list but some of the other deals were on the updated Grocery Game list. A big advantage to the Grocery Game is that she puts out a complete list on Sunday mornings to include that weeks coupons and for this week it was sure worth it. I have already used quite a few coupons from Sunday's paper.
I highly recommend heading back at the end of a good sales week to see what's left and pick up rain checks where you can. They were out of tortillas (which would have been free with a coupon from this Sunday's paper) but I got a rain check for the sale price and with the coupon they will be $0.50 in future weeks so I'm okay with that.
Okay, I'm staying out of the grocery stores for a while - I swear!!
