Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 62% At Target

Pin It

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope that you are having or have had an amazing day with your family and friends. I figured I would post my weekly totals link up early since tomorrow we will be enjoying a day full of food and fun. Since the Publix ad won't be new till Friday and since we aren't hosting Thanksgiving, we really needed next to nothing this week.

I hit up Target for a few last minute things and since I had Target gift cards to burn it was fun not to actually "spend" any of my grocery cash which will go towards some of our Black Friday shopping. I also swung by Publix quickly tonight to grab some pecans I had forgotten at Target and to grab two final deals from last week's ad.

Quick Publix trip: Spent $9.14 and saved $7.98
This week I also discovered the iphone app Ibotta. I was very skeptical at first but after using it this week I am kind of obsessed with it. Ibotta is an app that lets you earn real money for products you are already buying. You simply do simple tasks to earn anywhere from around .25 to $1.25 for each item and then you take a picture of your receipt when you buy the item and your account is credit. Right now, you should also be able to earn $5 when you sign up using someone's referral link (like this one!) I was able to earn an extra $1.50 from my Target trip and the money can eventually be sent to my PayPal account.

 Breakdown of Tuedsay's Target Trip:
Total retail value: $71.05
Total spent:  $26.80 after Ibotta earnings
Total saved: $44.25
Percent saved: 62%
