Wednesday Weekly Shopping: Stocking up on the basics

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

This week, I spent a heck of a lot of the basics.  Milk, eggs, flour, and produce took up much of my weekly budget of $80 for my family of five.

And what wasn't spent on the basics was spent on chocolate chips and olive oil.  Although it seems like those are the basics in my family sometimes!

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $81.27 for items which retail for $172.60, or a 53% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (46 weeks), I've spent $3523.08 for items which retail for $6292.86, and saved $2769.78, or a 44% savings. That's an average of $76.59 spent each week for a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters ages 14, 10, and 6), including lots of fresh produce, dairy items, and kosher meat.

How did your shopping go this week? What bargains did you get? Please leave a link to your blog post about your weekly shopping.
