In awe of super shoppers (Wednesday Weekly Shopping)

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

Those of you who get amazing deals every single week, I am in awe of you.

Sometimes I have a week where I just need to take off the deal shopping.  This week was that week.

I bought most of the groceries this week at ALDI and Western Beef, with just a quick trip to Publix to pick up a few items on sale and used just a few coupons.  I went ever so slightly over budget, but I was well under budget for the past two weeks, so I don't think this is that bad a slip-up.

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $82.43 for items which retail for $118.36, or a 30% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (13 weeks), I spent $939.41 for items which retailed for $1839.13, and saved $899.72, or a 49% savings. That's an average of $72.26 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.

I went $23 over budget this week, which is a lot. I could not help it though, I had to stop by ALDI to pick up a bag of cheap diapers, and well...you know how cheap things are at ALDI. It did not take long before my cart was full:)
