Wednesday Weekly Shopping: The M&Ms did it

I invite you to link up to your best grocery deals below, to inspire others to save more!

And... Would any bloggers like to co-host an Eat from the Pantry month in January with me?  Send me a note or a tweet or leave a comment below!

It's the M&Ms fault.  Or, rather, my sweet tooth.

I went a little over my budget this week because I couldn't resist getting the sweet (literally) M&Ms deal at Walgreens last week.  4 bags of holiday M&Ms for 75¢ each, after coupons and Register Rewards?  How could I not do that deal?

Unfortunately, I didn't have any Register Rewards to pay with, so the deal took 8 dollars out of pocket.  And I ran over by about 5 dollars.  Oops.

Oh, well, at least I have the M&Ms!  Yum!

Besides that deal, I got a full cart at Publix, some deals on Vaseline and cheese at Target, and shopped at ALDI for milk and bread and at Western Beef for fruits, veggies, lemon juice, and brown rice.

Overall, I spent $84.76 for items worth $167.53, or a 49% savings.  (But don't compare percentages!

See all my shopping here.
