November Grocery Budget Update

My budget went a tad higher than I wanted it to, but I am doing MUCH better than I was.  Last month I spent $453.44 which is $113.36 per week.

This month I have spent $340.01 which is $85.00 per week.  I reduced my budget by $28.36 per week or $113.43 for the month.  I saved one weeks worth of groceries this month!

December's Challenge:
Reduce budget by an additional $30.00 each week or $120.00 for the month!

I really think this is possible.  I have almost everything I need for baking, and I am stocked up on toilet paper...LOL, so I am hoping for some awesome sales and to be able to use up some of the stock pile that I have.

Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving...remember all that you are thankful for!

Oh, and the Johnson coupon that is out is great for the Johnson's buddy soaps...they are $.97 each and the coupon is for $1.00 off.  This was in the paper... I don't keep track of when it came out.

There are many great Target coupons found Here, print as many as you like and make sure to pair them with your manufacture coupons...

King Soopers Loot

I headed out to King Soopers today to pick up the items on my list, and lo and behold, they actually had ALL of the items I wanted!!!  Amazing as I usually find that they are out of one item that I want.

The cashier said, "I think you are the first person to have a coupon for everything you bought"  I have to disagree, there has to have been SOMEONE that has done this before.

I did have to pick up some things for Jacob's birthday this weekend, but all in all, not a bad trip.

I spent $37.18
I saved: $136.25

Here is what I bought:
(6) Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate
(4) Betty Crocker Potatoes
(4) Land O Lakes Butter
(12) Cans of Hormel Chili
(10) Zone Bars
(2) Packages of M&M's...I should have just check the Halloween candy, where was my brain.
(1) Kroger Cream Cheese
18 Eggs
(2) Pilsbury Cookie Dough
(2) Kroger Chicken Broth
(2) Flintstone Vitamins
(1) Kroger Heavy Whipping Cream
(5) Chex Mix
(4) Activia Yogurt

(4) Carnation Evaporated Milk
(1) Birthday Candle for my son

I had coupons for everything except the Kroger items and the Halloween Items.  I also used and for extra savings.

Some of these will be going to the food drive at Jalynn's school in a few weeks.  I got some of them free, and it is always good to give!

Target Trip 11/4/09

I hit Target today.  I got a few things that were not groceries...bummer :)  I got my kids their Halloween costumes for next year...I spent $12.50 for both costumes.  Not too shabby.

For groceries, I had to pick up a few baking items for Jacob's birthday this week, I am sad to say, I did not have coupons for some of the items.

Market Pantry Cookies $1.39
Mini Oreos $1.99
(2) Market Pantry Peanut Butter  $4.30
(1) Yellow Onion $.69
Archer Farms Breakfast pastry $.29
Wilton Decorators Icing $1.99

3lb. bag of Fuji Apples $FREE after coupons

(2) Boxes of Huggies Wipes $1.99-1.00 TQ - $.50 MFQ=$.50 each
(2) Boxes of Pampers Wipes $1.99 -1.00 MFQ=$.99 each
Total for groceries: $ 20.63 with Tax

I also bought (3) GE CFL Light bulbs for $.17
They were $2.39 each =$7.17
I had (3) $1.00 off Manufacture Coupons
(2) 2.00 off Target coupons
=$.17 for all 3 if I could find more of those Target coupons...

I didn't take a picture...I had a hairy day!

Bakery Outlet!

I found this great little place for all your bread needs!  It is on the south side of 120th and West side of York.  There used to be a Conoco there.

They sell Orowheat Bread, Thomas' english muffins, hamburger/hotdog buns, Entemenn's (I'm not sure how to spell that) products...and more.

I picked up two loaves of Orowheat bread, a 24 pack of Thomas' English Muffins and 3 packs of doughnuts...for the kids and my hubby.

I used a coupon they sent me in the mail for buy one get one free, and paid $4.78...I would have paid this at the grocery store for 1 loaf of bread (not on sale or with coupons of course).

If you spend $5.00 you get an item for free, and they have punch cards.  You get an item free after you spend $30.00.  Tuesdays are double punch day, and they give a Senior discount of 10% off!

Not a bad deal when I don't have time to make my own bread.

King Soopers Deals 11/04-11/10

King Soopers is running the exact same Buy 10 get $5.00 off Deal this coming week.

I have more coupons to use from the new inserts.  So, I am planning out my list for tomorrow.  I bet they will be out of stock on several of these items.  Don't forget to ask for a rain check...and for the amount that is listed after the buy 10 deal.

I am hoping to buy my 40 items for about $3.50ish.  If it all works out like it is suppose to.
