Now on to savings totals:
I may not need to go shopping next week. Wow what will I do with all my free time? Any suggestions
Altogether I spent $65.36 and saved $63.80 for groceries and healthcare items this week.*
*I did not include my seed cost or savings in these totals.
Just a few things first. My DI team made 6th place at our tournament. We are thrilled with the results. The team worked so hard and they are excited they placed this year. Now I can focus a little more time on my blog.
I am super busy trying to get my DI team ready for their competition this weekend. I can’t wait to share with you how we do this Saturday. Wish us luck. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I guide them but I really don’t have much to do on performance day except all the darn forms I have to complete. Right now this is my focus and where I love to spend my time. Helping nurture and grow seven 9-10 year olds to become not only leaders, but learn to be on a team. Both very important qualities and a difficult balance.
Since all this is going on, I don’t have much time to post all my items and coupon match ups, so I am just going to give quick totals. If I have time tonight I might update my post.
I still have two giveaways going on right now. One is for Purex Laundry Detergent and one is for Purex UltraPacks. The UltraPacks have a lower entry right now! You have a chance to win one of three FREE coupons for Purex Triple Action or you could enter to win one of three FREE coupons for Purex UltraPacks. Enter now for your chance to win you can enter both contests. Spread the word and tell all your friends.
-Final $0.24 each
I spent $24.95 and saved $21.03 on $45.98. There is more savings, since I got all the bread at $1.00 a loaf and they are around $4.00 each. I didn’t realized until I got home the Manwich sauce has high fructose corn syrup in it. I am trying to stay away from this for the kids. So I guess I will make my own using no high fructose corn syrup ketchup. I also got the Zatarians with brown rice. Now I can just add more brown rice to make it work for all five of us.
I spent $28.21 and saved $35.83 on $64.04.
1 Boiron ColdCalm $6.99
1 Minced Onion $1.77
1 Pepper FREE
B1G1 FREE on most spices. Since this was cheaper than the $1.00 store I got two items. I LOVE FREE!
Received $6.99 in ECBs. Woo Hoo money making trip!

I have a ridiculously low budget for all my toiletries per week. Since I have started learning the basics of extreme couponing, I have found I can budget around $5.00 each week on items such as toilet paper, deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, makeup, hairspray, soap ect… This is my budget for all of my toiletries for a family of five. That is $1.00 per person per week.
How is this even possible? I usually buy these items at the drugstores near me CVS or Walgreens. I am always amazed how many items I can get for free or close to free by using the drugstores reward program. Read my Extreme Couponing at the Drugstore post to learn more. Since I get most of my toiletries for free, this really helps stretch my $5.00 budget pretty far. Most toiletry items are used and then thrown away in the trash such as toilet paper and razors. I hate spending my money on things that get thrown away. I might as well just take my money and throw it in the trash too. Boo on that.
We don’t need razors every week, so if I get a razor for free I still have five dollars in my budget to spend on other things we may need. This is how I maximize my saving on my very limited budget to buy necessity items for us. I can’t stand having to spend money on items I have to throw away. If I can get them for free, it makes me happy! I love free! Then I can spend money on nutritious food for my wonderful family.
