Another shopping trip….

I went to Walmart and Publix this morning. I really do not like to make any trips to the Walmart here, but I needed a highchair, some clothes for Hailey, a protractor, and potting soil….all of which are not to be found at Publix. (Well, maybe the protractor but it would have cost more.) So, we endured it. I always leave there feeling very stressed out and vowing never to return!

Our visit to Publix was much more pleasant. I came away with a lot f goodies but I wasn’t able to save as much money as last time. I had 2 coupons…….. a $5 off of a $30 order as well as $6 off of Enfamil. The rest of my savings was due to BOGO. I also had to buy some items that usually are not on sale, such as produce and some special birthday cake things that I wouldn’t normally have on my list……Corbin’s birthday is Friday. My total savings was $58.22. :{ Better than nothing I guess, but I really wanted to save more. One good thing is that I have plenty of pasta, sauce, bagels, chicken, ground beef, potatoes, rice, beans, and flour to create many meals. I should only need to go back to get fresh fruits and/or veggies for a while. I do plan to take advantage of the sales again next week, at least somewhat…….still have to see what is left in our budget. I also plan to be armed with lots of coupons that I’ll find here and here. This week I didn’t have time to do that due to just returning from vacation, plus our printer is low on ink and is not printing very well right now. I can’t wait to get the sale paper tomorrow though, and start planning! My eventual goal is to save more than I spend….you know, spend $5.00 and save $82.00…..we’ll see how long it takes to get there (if ever). 🙂
