Shopping fun

Yesterday I did my monthly shopping trip to Wal*mart. Before I go I usually look through my coupons and see if I have any high ones to check and I also like to visit Money Saving Mom's Wal*mart section. Above are some of the deals that I snagged this month.

~The Starkist tuna pouches were 93 cents each. I had 4 $1 off coupons which had come in the mail from Vocal Point. I made 7 cents each on them.

~The frozen peas were $1.28 a bag. I had a $1 off 2 coupon. For a total of $1.56 for both of them.

~ The Kotex were $1 each. I had 2 $1 off coupons making them free.

~The South Beach Living Granola Bars were $2.60 each. I had 2 $2 off coupons making them 60 cents each. Thinking back on this, it still wasn't that great of deal but they are fun for a treat and will work well to take on some upcoming trips.

That wasn't all that I bought at Wal*mart but it is what I had fun using coupons on.

This month I am trying to keep all expenses under $150. I did have to do a bit of spending on groceries this first week but I am hoping to keep it pretty low from here on. Here is the spending I have done so far in February:

~Walgreens: $6.76
~Dairy Farm: $15
~Grocery Store: $2.97
~Walmart: $49.85
TOTAL: $74.58

I am looking forward to making sure I only spend $75 for the rest of the month. It is nice it is a short month! :-)

That is very encouraging! I was just talking with a friend that said she usually spends $500 per month on food for her family of 6 and is trying to get it down to $400 but just didn't think she could do it. I told her that last month we spent $167 on food and she was amazed. It takes some work, but can be done!!! It is a blessing to see you living a fun AND frugal life for God. :-)
