Shopping Trip 10/30- 11/5--- Under $20!!!


I had a great week!  While my budget is set at the usual $40/ week I was "secretly" hoping to keep it under $25 this week, so I can build up some extra money for Thanksgiving Dinner.  So, you all know I was quite pleased when I did my final tally and was under $20!!!  Another reason that this week was great is that I earned my Free Shoprite Turkey!  We're planning to donate this to a local soup kitchen with some other pantry goods.  I didn't get pictures of everything, but I did get pictures of a few shops, so here they are...
Shoprite: $0.12 
( I used Catalinas from previous deals to pay!)
Adams: $4.54
(See we really did start to buy produce, again)
Shoprite: $2.29
(I had another Catalina to use up!)
Walmart: $4.81

Adding these trips to the others not pictured here:

Total Spending = $19.02
Total Savings = $264.68 or 93%
November Budget (4 wks..Oct 30-Nov 26) = $160
Remaining Budget for November $140.98


How was your first week of November?

Laura- Yes, fresh produce reappears as the "produce from my backyard" season comes to a screeching halt! :)
