Weekly Spending Summary (7/8-7/14)

For the first time in weeks I got absolutely nothing free after coupons and sales.  But I still was able to get a few good deals and some things that I needed.

Total Spent: $18.43
Total Saved with Coupons: $5.40
Total Saved with Sales: $4.08
Total Saved: $9.48

Giant: $4.16
Saved with Coupons: $3.90
Saved with Sales: $3.58

Although we don’t eat a lot of chips I do like to have them on hand for picnics and for the occasional times that we do want them around.  The cottage cheese was a great price (just $1.00 after coupons/sales) and the tuna was too ($0.39/can).  I’ve found that I can often get canned tuna for free or at least very inexpensively.  It’s a great way to get some seafood into your diet without paying lots of money.


  • Lays Potato Chips $2.50
  • 4 Bumble Bee Tuna $0.89 each
  • Daisy Cottage Cheese $2.00 (with rain check)

Coupons Used:

Rite Aid: $0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $1.50
Saved with Sales: $0.50

I almost always can get soap for free but lately haven’t seen that many deals for it.  And since my hubby was almost out of soap I decided that it was worth paying $0.50 for this.


  • Zest soap $2.99

Coupons Used:

  • $0.50 Zest coupons from Sunday newspaper coupon inserts
  • $1.00 in UPReward coupons (Rite Aid coupons that print at register for purchasing specific items)

Got Back:

  • $2.00 in UPRewards for purchasing the Zest (can use on next purchase of any item)
