Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Or, not shopping

I invite you to link up to your best grocery deals below, to inspire others to save more! 
I'd love to tell you all about the shopping I did this week, but there isn't much to say.

I was eating from my pantry last week, so I only stopped into the grocery stores to get a few basic items and a few must-have deals.  I even skipped the drug stores this week.

Here's what I did get:

ALDI: Spent $8.75

Publix: Spent $11.33, saved $15.74

Overall, this week I spent $20.08 for items which retail for $41.86, or a 52% 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 $9.99.

For the year (30 weeks), I've spent $2205.49 for items which retail for $4305.40, and saved $2099.91, or a 49% savings. That's an average of $73.52 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.

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!

I think you did great! The goal is to get to the point where we only need to do what you did this week. If we already have most of what we need, bought at rock bottom prices, we're set!

Can you please erase #19? It was a mistake. Thanks.
