My Grocery Trip 7/14/18

Yesterday I went food shopping at Winn Dixie and went over my goal of only spending $70 on groceries. See my total and savings below:

I received $.25 back from Ibotta and 1,541 points toward a $5.00 Amazon gift card on Fetch Rewards which brought my total to $85.45!  I also completed a Winn Dixie survey which will earn me $5 off of my next trip of $40 or more. I could have done so much better but it’s not easy when you’ve been slacking on couponing lately and trying to get back on track.  Next week I’ll have to try and make up for overspending this week.

Final analysis of my trip:

  • I spent $15.45 over my goal of $70 a week (UGH)
  • I am now eligible for an Amazon gift card (you can choose other stores but I’m an Amazon freak) with points from a few weeks of shopping
  • I’ve been doing Swagbucks surveys and am almost at a total where I am eligible for a $5.00 gift card to Amazon or other select stores.

Another thing that I did this weekend was check balances on some of our gift cards that we received for our birthdays and Christmas.  We had a total of $55 in gift cards! 

Do you have gift cards that you’ve forgotten about? Time to check them!

Till next time!

Saving Money on Groceries

I’ve been clipping coupons and using coupon apps for a while now.  I admit, I slack at it sometimes but I really need to start paying more attention as I am spending way too much money on food for hubby and I.  Today I went food shopping and spent $109.29! WHAT!  Granted, I purchased a lot of food, used coupons, planned my trip, got many items buy one get one free, used my coupon apps and got about $1.75 back but I KNOW that I could do better!  I’m just lazy.

I have to go back to treating couponing and searching for deals a part time job.  When I used to do this I saved so much money.  There is no reason why I should be spending this kind of money on food A WEEK for 2 people!  Nonsense!!!

As of today, I am making a goal of spending $70 a week on groceries.  This will include clipping coupons, digital coupons, Ibotta and Fetch Rewards  .  If you haven’t signed up for these two apps, YOU SHOULD so you can save extra money on things that you may already buy on a weekly basis.

Who wants to do this challenge with me?
