Drugstore craziness (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 went a little crazy at the drug stores.  After several weeks of just picking up a couple of items, both Walgreens and CVS had several good deals.  But I was low on Extra Care Bucks from CVS and Register Rewards from Walgreens, so I ended up spending over $15 at each store out of pocket.  Which put me over budget this week.  Ack!

Here's what I got this week:

Overall, this week I spent $94.55 for items which retail for $191.70, or a 51% savings based on the retail value of the products at the stores where they were purchased.  (But don't compare percentages!)

For the year (30 weeks), I spent $2,261.01 for items which retailed for $4,352.92 and saved $2,091.91, or a 48% savings. That's an average of $75.37 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, as well as paper and plastic goods, health and beauty items, and cleaning supplies.

In 2011, I spent $4,017.13 for items which retailed for $7,344.08, saving 45% and spending an average of $77.25 per week for the year.

Those were a ton of good trips! I love when you get the deals and come out with good food to eat :) Sometimes I come home with nail clippers and tomato paste and wonder how you make dinner from that!! What a great week :)
