Wednesday Weekly Shopping: I heart barbecues and drug store shopping

I invite you to link up to your best grocery deals below!

It was an easy week of shopping this week.  We attended a barbecue on Monday - I made lots of side dishes from ingredients I had on hand, plus a few items like cabbage for the cole slaw that I didn't already have. We received lots of leftovers from the barbecue, so much that I needed to do very little food shopping on Tuesday.  And, there were lots of great deals at both CVS and Walgreens, and I used lots of coupons and Register Rewards/Extra Care Bucks, so much of those trips were free, or close to it!

In sum, this week I spent $57.90 on groceries (well below my budgeted amount of $80 for a family of five) for $129.91 in groceries and drug store items, for a savings percentage of 55%.

See all my shopping here.

Check out the following to see how others shopped this week!

Hi! I shopped CVS for the first time this week
and Walgreens and got some good deals. You are a wonderful inspiration!

I don't think I have the time to track all of my expenses and savings, but I'd sure love to!
