Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Cheap milk and eggs

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

This week, we celebrated Passover, so I didn't do a lot of shopping to add to my stockpile - the food budget was used to purchase food eaten during the holiday.  But I did find some money to buy a turkey (on sale at Publix last week) to put away in my quickly-emptying freezer; I'll cook it in a couple of weeks.

I also got some great deals on the basics - 29¢ for milk at CVS and 64¢ per dozen eggs at Target.  Wish I could get those deals all the time!

Here's what I got this week (click on the link below the picture for more details about the trip):

In addition, I made trips to:
  • ALDI: $10.12 for two gallons of milk, four dozen eggs, and 2 packages of lettuce
  • Kosher store: $15.45 for 1 package of egg matzah, 2 packages of chocolate chips, and 2 boxes of matzah meal
  • Produce store: $1.87 for one sleeve of celery, 2 red peppers, and 3 sweet potatoes
Overall, this week I spent $71.57 for items which retail for $149.22, or a 52% savings.  (But don't compare percentages! Please!)  Of course, if I compared the ALDI and produce store prices to supermarket full prices, it would show a lot more savings. 

For the year (17 weeks), I've spent $1216.86 for items which retail for $2351.39, and saved $1134.53, or a 48% savings. That's an average of $71.58 spent each week for a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters ages 13, 10, and 6).

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.
