Weekly Spending Summary (4/29-5/5)

I didn’t do a lot of shopping this week and there weren’t many amazing deals either.  In fact, I had planned to go to Rite Aid but never did just because I didn’t feel like it.  (Yes, I get tired of shopping sometimes too.)  Rite Aid’s sales weren’t that amazing and I didn’t have any UPRewards expiring so there was nothing to push me go and so I just decided to skip it this week.

Total Spent: $15.87
Total Saved with Coupons: $15.00
Total Saved with Sales: $14.92
Total Saved: $29.92

CVS: $0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $13.00
Saved with Sales: $4.90

I have a gift card that I bought from  Living Social that I used to pay for this purchase otherwise my out of pocket would have been $1.97.

Bought:

  • 2 Colgate Toothpastes $2.99 each
  • Blink Tears $8.99 (was bought with a rain check)

Coupons Used:

  • $1.00/2 Colgate coupon from Sunday newspaper coupon inserts
  • $1.00 Blink tears coupon from Sunday newspaper coupon inserts
  • $1.00/1 toothpaste from CVS Red Coupon Machine in store
  • $10.00 in Extra Bucks coupons (CVS coupons that print at register)

Got Back:

  • $4.98 in Extra Bucks for purchasing Colgate (can use on next purchase of any item)
  • $3.00 in Extra Bucks for purchasing Blink Tears (can use on next purchase of any item
  • $9.00 in Extra Bucks for purchasing Blink Tears (can use on next purchase of any item)
    - Yes, I got two different Extra Bucks for the Blink Tears.  One was from this week (there was a promotion on it) and one was from the promotion that was running the week I got the rain check.  Didn’t think about that I’d get both.  Almost feels unethical to do it, but I didn’t really try it.

Giant: $6.00
Total Saved with Coupons: $2.00
Total Saved with Sales: $10.02

I had a Visa gift card that I got from an Olay rebate that I did earlier that I used to pay for $6.19 of this purchase.

Bought:

  • 4 Goya Beans $0.80 each
  • 2 Russet Potatoes 5 lb. each $3.99 (on sale Buy One Get One Free)
  • 5 Huggies Wipes $1.40 each

Coupons Used:

  • $1/4 Goya printable coupon
  • $0.75/1 Huggies Wipes coupon from manufacturer (doubled to $1.00)

Aldi: $9.87

I love Aldi.  Not only do they have great prices, their food is excellent quality too.  They are my go-to place for things that I can’t find a good sale on.  If you’ve never given them a try and you have one nearby, you really should stop in.  I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.  (And they even have a double money back guarantee on almost all of their products.  So if you don’t like something you can get double your money back!)

Bought:

  • 2 Saltines $0.89 each
  • Corn Chips $0.99
  • Chocolate Chips 12 oz. $1.79
  • Brown Sugar 2 lb. $1.49
  • Tortillas $0.99
  • Kettle Chips $1.79
  • Bananas $0.44/lb.
