Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Cinco de Mayo Sales & Veggies



This week was a quick and easy shopping trip for us. I needed a bunch of fresh items for an Avocados from Mexico post (Mexican Bruschetta coming soon!) and other than that we basically stocked up on items from the Cinco de Mayo sales at Publix. We are set on tortillas, corn chips and salsa for a while now. I can see us using some of our Zaycon chicken to make Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas in the near future : ) 

I had another $25 gift card from a blog promotion so between that and a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon this week's actual out of pocket totals were really low again which has been great since we have had some unexpected expenses lately and are currently in the process of saving for a new to us car. I love that by having a cash grocery budget we actually put our grocery savings to work for us each week but using our left over cash to pay off bills and save towards our current savings goals. 

Breakdown of Thursday's Publix trip:
Total retail value: $71.08
Total paid before gift card: $29.19
Total out of pocket after gift card: $4.19
Total saved: $41.89
Percent saved: 58%
