Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Big savings this week!

I invite you to link up to your best grocery deals below, to inspire others to save more! 
 
For the past two weeks, I've had a disappointing amount of savings, primarily because I mostly bought produce and items at ALDI. But this week, I bought quite a few sale items from Publix and CVS with coupons, driving my savings percentage way above normal!

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 $70.89 for items which retail for $177.90, or a 60% 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 $22.10, since I bought many things that I normally wouldn't have bought.

For the year (27 weeks), I've spent $2024.23 for items which retail for $3931.67, and saved $1907.44, or a 49% savings. That's an average of $74.97 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.
