Wednesday Weekly Shopping: I brake for Spring Break

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

It's Spring Break week here at the Frugal Follies household! (Why it's this week, and not Passover/Easter week in April, I don't know.) So I've taken a bit of a break from the deals, though not too much.

Last week, when my youngest child was sick, I went to Publix, Walgreens, and ALDI, and also bought two packages of chicken breasts at BJ's. (Thanks to all of you who asked about her health - she's all better now!)

And on Sunday, I did my now-usual trips to Winn-Dixie, CVS, and Walgreens again.

And that's it. Usually I'll hit another store or three. Yes, this is what a vacation looks like for me.

Here are the pictures of my trips (click on the link below each picture to learn more about the trip):

And the chicken at BJ's (not pictured) cost $20.98.

Overall, this week I spent $73.67 for items which retail for $159.93, or a 54% savings.  (But don't compare percentages!)  Of course, if I compared the ALDI prices to supermarket full prices, it would show a lot more savings. 

For the year (11 weeks), I've spent $710.19 for items which retail for $1485.84, and saved $775.65, or a 52% savings. That's an average of $64.56 spent each week. 

See all my shopping here.

How did your shopping go this week? What bargains did you get? Please leave a link to your blog post about your weekly shopping. The aim is not to brag, but to inspire!  Please link up directly to your post, not to the blog itself. I'd appreciate it if you put a link to Wednesday Weekly Shopping in your post as well. If you don't have a blog, please leave a comment!

For more great shopping deals and trips, please check out the bloggers listed on the left sidebar under Shopping Deals Linkups. There are lots of great ideas on each blog and I'm sure you'll find inspiration for you to save even more!

Thanks so much for linking up at the Link Up Lounge! I wanted to let you know that I moved its location to my main blog! Also, I have you featured twice in the "Link Up Lounge" Side bar for linking up first (friday finals and Giveaways)! I really appreciate you stopping by! I will be linking up some recipes with you this week! =)

Thanks for the link up. I did 2 posts. I really need to start doing a end of the week joint post like you do.

You had some great shopping this week! I had a pretty awesome Walmart trip myself. $50 before coupons, $9 after!

Thanks for the link up! I checked back twice for the Excedrin PM at Walgreens- when do you normally do your shopping? I'm still learning a lot. Seems like if you don't go first thing Sunday, the deals are gone!

Hope you are enjoying the break! It must be nice! So glad your daughter is much better.

It's Spring Break for us this week too, which strikes me as very weird considering that my 4 year old graduates from preschool in 2 weeks. Why bother with a week off? Looks like you had another good week. Enjoy the quality time with the kiddos!
