Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Walgreens ho!

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

This week, I spent a lot of time in Walgreens, looking for the amazing free after Register Rewards deals they had in the previous week's flyer.  Luckily, Walgreens stores are on just about every street corner in this area.  I'm not kidding.  Going down the main road about four miles, I pass three stores.  Turn down one of the cross streets and go a couple of miles, I pass two more.  And I know of a few other stores as well.

But, the proximity didn't really help all that much - the stores were out of everything, for the most part.  I did manage to snag a couple of items, but not as many as I'd hoped for.  Oh, well.

Another great shopping find this week was a Winn-Dixie store that was closing and moving to a new location.  I was hoping for some amazing deals like I found at the Albertson's closing sale, but they were not as great as I'd hoped.  There were no unusual sales on dry goods, but it was 50% off all remaining frozen food and dairy.  I didn't see any great deals on frozen food (mostly overpriced frozen dinners), but I was able to get milk, cheese, margarine, and cream cheese for half price - a great deal in my book!

Overall, I spent $75.01 ($5 under budget) for groceries worth $139.29, or a 46% savings. 

See all my shopping here.

I just couldn't put Walgreen's together this week....very limited funds on my part stopped me from getting the things I I just didn't go at all.
We only have the one in my town, which is only 1 mile from my house.
