$10 off $100 coupon tempts (Wednesday Weekly Shopping)

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

This week, the $10 off $100 coupon that I had from Doris Italian Market (and that my Publix accepts as a competitor) proved too tempting for me.  I ended up going well over my budget of $80 per week this week.  But I'm still under budget for the year!

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $106.08 for items which retail for $233.81, or a 55% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (3 weeks), I spent $218.92 for items which retailed for $450.57, and saved $231.65, or a 52% savings. That's an average of $72.97 spent each week for a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters ages 14, 11, and 6), including lots of fresh produce, dairy items, and kosher meat.

In 2011, I spent $4017.13 for items which retailed for $7344.08, saving 45% and spending an average of $77.25 per week for the year.

I used that $10 off $100 coupon last week, when I was buying diapers. Like you I was over budget, but this week I am under budget so it all adds up in the end.

Don't you just love those Doris coupons?
