Averaging under $76/week for the year (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 used up pretty much all of my $80 per week budget on two trips to ALDI.  So I was definitely going to go over.  But there were great deals at Publix, Walgreens, and CVS, and I didn't want to miss them!

I was well under budget for many weeks, so a couple of weeks over budget won't hurt too much.  I'm still averaging under $76 per week for the year. 

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $94.61 for items which retail for $154.47, or a 39% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (19 weeks), I spent $1439.45 for items which retailed for $2721.63, and saved $1282.18, or a 48% savings. That's an average of $75.76 spent each week for a family of five (husband, wife, and daughters ages 14, 11, and 7), 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.
