Total for this week: I paid $69.00 for $101.99 worth of groceries; I saved: $32.99 (I am disappointed)

I am doing a new thing where at the end of the week I show all that I spent for the week. This way at the end of the month I can see how much money I am spending monthly.  I have  a family of 4, so anything under $100 per week for all food, drinks, eating out, toiletries, haircare products, diapers and baby formula is my goal. I have 2 kids in diapers, so this may sound ambitious but I accomplished it this week!

Here is my second weekly review:


My Dollar Tree Shopping Trip Dec. 7: $9.61


My Walmart Shopping Trip Dec. 9: Saved $25.69


K-mart Shopping Trip Dec. 10: Saved $7.30

My K-mart shopping trip Dec. 12: 4 “D” batteries & Starburst for $7.49 (boo me, I didn’t even take my coupon binder with me! I wouldn’t have bought these not-on-sale but I needed them right then.)

Total for this week:

PAID: $69.00

SAVED: $32.99 (I didn’t count any saving from my Dollar Tree trip because I have no idea how much I saved on my makeup, probably $10)

Plus, I spent over $37 on Christmas presents, only saving $10 on them.  Pretty weak compared to my big savings last week!
