Wednesday Weekly Shopping: The sick kid edition

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

I've been busy taking care of a sick kid this week, so I did some extra shopping last Sunday so that I could make it through the week without going again.  It looks like the extra trips took me over budget... but just a bit.

Here are my trips from last week (click the link to see more details about the trip):

Overall, this week I spent $84.60 for items which retail for $207.88, or a 59% 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 (10 weeks), I've spent $636.52 for items which retail for $1325.91, and saved $689.39, or a 52% savings. That's an average of $63.65 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!

Hope your kids feel better those days are not fun but have to say I love the titles each week!

@Debi - she's much, much better. No fever and just a runny nose. Just in time for her school's spring break.

I wish we had an Aldi here! Glad to see your daughter is feeling better! My son had the flu last month and it was horrible! Now it seems like he catches everything coming and going :(

Have fun with Spring break plans. Hope she feels completely better. Great job on saving!
