I don't post a lot of my "regular" shopping trips on here. I used to, but I never know if it's helpful or if it bores people. But in a way it kind of holds me accountable to what I'm purchasing, even though it all goes onto my spreadsheet, so I'm going to try this for the month of April. Every week I'm going to post my "everyday" trips to the stores to show you what I'm buying. I'm trying really hard to pay attention to our purchases this month to see where we can improve. This also means for the month of April I'm going to try to get back into the drugstore game a little bit. I used to be huge into Rite Aid and Walgreens, but not for about six months. In fact, when I went to Walgreens today, my favorite cashier Sarah was working and she told me she thought we had moved! Hah! Okay, on to the list.

My total spent this week was around $69, but I saved 66% overall, so I'm happy with that. I always tell people to strive to save 50%. Plus, several of these items were used to cook for family members other than my hubby and children, so I feel like these groceries were really put to good use. :)
How did you do this week??
