Welcome to the Weekly Savings Linky here at Frugality Is Free! This week I went more than $20 below my weekly grocery budgets, because I only picked up a few essentials and a couple of deals. It is good to have weeks like this one once in a while, so that I can offset those weeks where I go over budget. It all seems to even out in the end, when I add up my entire purchases for the year. While I did not save much at the different stores, I would still have ended up paying at least $15 more, if I had purchased everything at one store.

How did you do on your shopping this week?
