My new button! (Wednesday Weekly Shopping)

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

This week, I finally got to a blog task I've been meaning to do for as long as this linkup's been around:

I made a button for Wednesday Weekly Shopping!

So if you're participating in the linky below, I'd love for you to display this button in your post or on your blog's sidebar. Just right-click on the code box below the button, choose "Select All," then right-click again and choose "Copy." Then add it to your page!

As for shopping, I stayed just under budget this week, but I'm still over budget for the year. But the average is going down, which is the right direction!

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $79.02 for items which retail for $124.78, or a 37% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (5 weeks), I spent $409.57 for items which retailed for $779.03, and saved $369.46, or a 47% savings. That's an average of $81.91 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.

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!
