Weekly Totals: Publix & Kroger 58% Savings + Linky

This. Is. Me.

Anyways I had some great shopping trips this week!
The first Publix trip was actually a leak over from last week but
we have been fighting colds so I was pretty lazy plus I have been trying to get my blog, diet, exercise, couponing, and everything else in my life organized.
So although I have been saving money where I can,
I need to get back on the Dave Ramsey band wagon! :)

Kroger Trip:

I had intentions of getting with coupons but they were out AND I forgot my $0.50/1 Cheerios coupon that would have doubled but did manage to use this Saving Star one making them $1.49 instead of $0.49 that it should have been. I spent too much - $39.61 OOP (if I didn't have a $10 gift card from a campaign, it would have been more) but it's okay because I stocked up on the veggies needed to do the Copy Kids DVD review and some special items for Valentine's Day. :)

2nd Publix Trip:

This trip goes to show why you need to remember what the date is and why you need to write down your game plan precisely when Couponing. :(

So here is what I got:

6 Hallmark Cards $0.99
- 2 BOGO in ad Publix Coupons (should have been 3 :[ )
