Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Way over budget this week

I invite you to link up to your best grocery deals below, to inspire others to save more! 
 
This week, I went a full $20 over budget.  Not surprising, though, since $60 of it was spent on filling up my freezer with kosher meat.  But otherwise, I spent $40 for the week - not too bad.  And I'm still well below the $80 per week average that I budget for.  Still, I'm hoping that I go under budget for the next few weeks.

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












Overall, this week I spent $100.86 for items which retail for $137.16, or a 26% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)  My real savings (how much more I'd spend if I bought those items at the lowest possible regular price in my area) was approximately $13.72.

For the year (25 weeks), I've spent $1875.30 for items which retail for $3636.12, and saved $1760.82, or a 48% savings. That's an average of $75.01 spent each week for a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters ages 13, 10, and 6), including lots of fresh produce, dairy items, and kosher meat.

See all my shopping here.

Thank you for hosting.
I have a page on my site that lists more than 300 hops, memes, and photo challenges… some for each day of the week. Yours is listed there, too! Check under the header for the link to that page. I’ve also started a BlogFrog community that focuses on hops, carnivals, memes, and photo challenges. Go to http://theblogfrog.com/1504201 to visit & participate.

Thank you so much for sharing your deals and providing a link up. I checked out your Under a Buck at Walgreens items also while I was here- love it! Now, if I could just get my Walgreens to actually stock their shelves : )
