Weekly Total 1/1–1/8

Posted by Liz McCoy Sunday, January 9, 2011

My husband and I worked out a new budget this year since I’m now happily staying at home with the kiddo (soon to be kiddos). My main focus of course is the grocery and household portion of the budget.  We set a goal of $50 per week or $200 per month.  We set this goal based on postings and averages shared by Michelle at I Heart Publix.  Michelle’s site is my absolute favorite for weekly match ups and info on the hottest coupon deals.  She has a sister site called I Heart Kroger and I Heart Saving Money


This was my first week shopping with my new goal. I’m super proud of myself for getting so close to our goal. 


I spent $58.25 and saved an average of 72.93%!!

Currently I shop for up to 3 households plus we try and get food for donations throughout the year. Here is a look at what we purchased during the week including all the stores we visited.




I hope to post my weekly totals a bit more timely in the future.  We will see how things go once the baby gets here. I’m not sure how much shopping I will be doing. Or how successful I will be with two kids in tow.


Happy Couponing!!
