Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Veggies and more veggies

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

This week, I got my fill of veggies.

I bought lots of 'em at ALDI, where there were some great produce deals to be had.  (Sorry, no picture!  I will start photographing my ALDI trips as well as my great deals from other stores.)

There were 3 lb. bags of onions, trays of 6 Roma tomatoes, and a tray with one red and one yellow pepper - each for 99¢!  I bought as much as I thought I could use.  I also got lots of cucumbers and avocados, my snacks since I've cut out most bread and pasta from my diet (and lost 15 pounds since January!).  And I bought the usual dairy and eggs there, as well as a few items I haven't been able to stock up on yet.  I spent more than half my budget at ALDI this week.

I also got lots of frozen veggies and juice at Target:

And some cheese and personal care items:

Some great deals at CVS:

And some at Walgreens:

And after having gone to Publix three times last week, I didn't go at all this week.

Overall, this week I spent $77.90 for items which retail for $165.85, or a 53% 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 (9 weeks), I've spent $551.92 for items which retail for $1118.03, and saved $566.11, or a 51% savings. That's an average of $61.32 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.

15 pounds in two months is amazing! Good job! I've been "dieting" for almost three weeks and have lost 3 lbs lol!

Great job on the weight loss AND the savings! Sure wish we had an ALDI here in SW FL....

Thanks for the link up. I like how you keep a running total for the year, but them average it out per week. Some weeks have great deals and you end up spending more than you usually do but then hardly anything the next, so its great to look at it that way!

Wow, congrats on your fabulous weightloss! You did great on your savings too. I was actually able to get cheap produce at Publix after coupons, so I did not buy much at Aldi this week.

I would like to invite you to link up your savings at the Weekly Savings Linky @ Frugality Is Free . Enter to win a $25 Publix GC too!
