Weekly Savings, May 25-31

No pictures this week; I've been so busy that I was happy just to get the groceries into the house and put away in some sort of order.

I was a Kroger-only kind of girl this week; I made two trips to Kroger for our groceries as well as for some extra goodies for a get-together.

Total Spent (both trips combined): $96.47
Total Saved (both trips combined): $66.09, or 40%

I've really been a Kroger-only shopper all month; May has been so terribly busy for us that I've not set foot in a CVS or a Walgreens since April. Instead, I've been grabbing the best deals I can find at Kroger and using up some stockpiled items (toothpaste, cereal, deodorant).

Although the deals at Kroger haven't been over-the-top crazy, I've still managed to save big on what I did buy. And when our family schedule gets busy, busy, busy, it's nice to be able to get what I need all at one store rather than try to race around town to several stores with one or more kids in tow.

Sometimes simplicity wins out over mega-saving.

I'm on target this week for my budget of $100/week but I still think I'm over for the month. A little quiet time this weekend with my calculator, receipts, and spreadsheets will either prove me right or wrong.

How'd you do this week?
