You win some, you lose some (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 had lots of luck with my Publix shopping during the Italian Days sale - I spent a little over $20 for a tableful of healthy, yummy food.  But I didn't do so well with CVS, only getting one free item.  Oh, well, you win some, you lose some!

And, if you're keeping track (I am!), I went below my targeted average of $80 per week for grocery shopping.  Currently I'm averaging a whole dime less!

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $78.02 for items which retail for $144.32, or a 46% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (8 weeks), I spent $639.18 for items which retailed for $1240.90, and saved $601.72, or a 49% savings. That's an average of $79.90 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.
