Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Weeks like this

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

Weeks like this are why I'm frugal.

I spent almost $150 on groceries, mainly because I bought kosher meat this week.  It should be enough to last two months, but it's still a big hit for a single week.

Still... over the past 10 weeks, including this one, I've spent an average of $72.47 per week to feed a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters 13, almost 10, and 5), as well as for the paper goods and personal care items needed.  (Note: eating out, which we do once a week for breakfast and a couple of times a month for dinner, is not included in that figure.)

So even though I spent a lot in a single week, I saved enough previously to keep me well under my budget of $80 per week.  And that's what it's all about!

As for my shopping: I did hit the Walgreens 4 day sale with my Friends and Family discount coupon - here's what I got there.  I got cheap appetizer makings at Target.  And I also hit the usual places - Publix, Winn-Dixie, ALDI, and Western Beef, for a few items at each place.

Overall, I spent $149.93 for items worth $207.53, or a 27% savings.  (But don't compare percentages! Especially this week!) 

See all my shopping here.
