Super Saving Saturday 2-16-08



For the past few weeks I have had great pictures to show our savings, however, this week I have no pictures nor do I have lists of fantastic buys that I purchased this week. I think the greatest savings that I have had over the past week has been the money that has stayed in my pockets.


This week the outflow of money from our account has been extremely minimal. Matter of fact, I wrote my first check of the week yesterday evening and spent no cash during the week! There have been a few meals out (Valentine's) and last night we purchased Little Cesears instead of making our own pizza but overall it has been a fairly money free week.


I was not that impressed with the CVS savings this week and right now there is not anything that we are needing for our personal care items. I am on the hunt for canned goods to be on sale but in Oklahoma we do not have all the great grocery stores that my friends have in Texas. Gosh the sales have been great down there!


I did stumble on a few good savings yesterday as I was picking up ginger ale and saltine crackers at the local grocer (stomach virus has now invaded our home....again). I bought the last three boxes of Valentine cookies for those that are not sick at home to share. The iced sugar cookies were 50 cents and the heart shaped shortbread cookies were .35 cents. Can't beat that!


I am gearing up for this next CVS ad and checking out what our grocers have in store. It is time to restock my canned goods since they are starting to get low.


This week I have been able to resist the urge to shop and check out the sales on my lunch hour. A penny saved is a penny earned and this week our family of six saved quite a few!

Good post. Although I am new at all this, it does seem that part of the deals is not buying stuff when you totally don't need it at all.

Good luck with your canned goods.

I am with you... we have no good grocery stores here! I read about other people's sales and deals. It makes me a little envious. HA. I'm sorry that the stomach virus has found your house. I think it has found everyone's house that I know in the last few weeks. We've had about 1/2 of our students and teaching staff gone within the last 7-8 days.

Every time someone asks me how I like Ok, I tell them I miss three things: my family, my friends and Tom Thumb, Central Market. The grocery stores here kind of stink. My left arm for a Whole Foods in Bricktown (that's the rumor I've heard). Of course, it won't have great deals, but the food is so good.

On another note, for canned goods, maybe a quarterly trip to DFW would be worth it if you purchased enough? I plan on loading my van up with Costco stuff when we go for Spring Break. =)
