Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 60% On Mostly Meat & Veggies

Spent $19, Saved $30
Today was a quick and easy shopping trip. We are overly stocked on almost everything so I didn't feel the need to take advantage of most of the food deals this week since for us the prices weren't that good especially when we have so much on hand. I was hoping to take advantage of a few deals on household items but I either couldn't find the coupons or the sizes/specifications once I got to the store didn't match my coupons.

It was nice to be able to buy some meat and veggies without spending much at all this week thanks to a $5/$30 coupon and no other real grocery needs. I felt like we were missing something when we went to checkout with so few items and almost no coupons. As my receipt below shows, I only used $1.45 worth of manufacturer coupons so everything else I saved was from sale prices or Publix coupons found in store.

I only shopped at Publix this week. I meant to make it to Target this week but I just never got motivated to do so. Hopefully Sunday's ad will have some good deals in it and I will make it out to my local Target soon. Make sure you link up your weekly totals posts below and show us all how you did!
