$224 Worth of Products for $104 - Link Up At The Savings Linky

Our visitors have left, and I am now back to my regular shopping routine. I did spend extra this week though, as my middle son is turning six next week, and I have promised him a big party. Thankfully I have been shopping year round for the best party deals, so I do not have to dedicate a lot of money for the party.Read more

$164 Worth of Products for $62 - Share Your Savings At The Weekly Savings Linky

This week I did not do much grocery shopping, as we are lucky to have visitors for two weeks. Instead of shopping, I have been spending a lot of time on the beach, which is the best kind of frugal fun. 

My pantry is completely filled up, and so is my freezer, my fridge and my extra storage space in the kitchen, so it has been easy to lay low this week.Read more

My Savings: $607 Worth of Goods for $209- Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

I am absolutely horrified by the amount of money that I spent this week, and I am not looking forward to seeing my totals. Still being able to spend the money, when I need to spend it to get the deals helps my family’s budget in the long run. I was able to purchase all of my niece’s and nephews’ birthday and Christmas gifts, which means they can be sent abroad with visitors instead of being sent via mail, which will cost about $100.Read more

My Savings: $358 Worth of Goods for $87 Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

Target’s Christmas clerance finally went to 90 percent off this week, and I spent a little extra on a mini chopper, so I am a little over budget, but I am confident that I will do as well on my grocery savings in 2012 as I did in 2011. See how I saved $7666 on my groceries in 2011. You can also check out my 2011 clothing savings here.Read more

$338 Worth of Goods for $108 Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

I have been waiting for this shopping week ever since last year’s Christmas clearance frenzy, so I did a lot of shopping this week. I did get some fantastic deals though, and I am already doing great on my 2012 shopping list. My dad is coming to visit from overseas sometime soon, so my goal is to finish shopping for birthdays and Christmas by that time, so that he can bring gifts to my family over there.Read more

My Grocery Savings Link Up $153 Worth of Groceries for $60 Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

With all three boys home this week, I decided to skip the trip to Aldi for a second week in a row. I really did not do a lot of shopping this week, because shopping with three boys unless it is absolutely necessary is just not my cup of tea. Instead I planned out a couple of quick trips, where I could easily run in and out of the store while my husband were waiting for the kids.I did up spending my full allotted budget of $60 though, since I bought 6 packs of diapers.Read more

My Grocery Savings: $300 Worth of Groceries for $89 Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

This week I decided to skip my Aldi shopping trip, as I did a lot of shopping last week. Instead I made a big Publix shopping trip, because Publix has some fantastic deals this week. I spent a little more than usual, but it all seems to even up in the end.

$195 Worth Of Products For $46 - Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

I did a lot of shopping this past week, but some of it was for blogging promotions that I will write more about. After all the shopping I did, I am amazed to discover that I only spent $46! That’s $46 for a family of five, and it included a gift.

This means that I am well below my grocery budget of $50 – $60 a week, but it all seems to add up when I look at the entire year.

$116 Worth Of Products For $37 - Link Up @ The Weekly Savings Linky

My kids have been home all week, so I skipped a lot of my regular shopping. We have all been sick on and off ever since the boys got off from school last week, so I am thankful to have a well-stocked pantry to last us through the week. I did go and pick up bread today, as I was at CVS and Target for a few Black Friday deals, and Publix was right next door.
