Homeland Haul ~ Another great week!

This week at Homeland just may have been better than the the last! Below is my shopping trip done in two different transactions. I spent about $50 for a cart full of groceries including most of my meat for this week and part of next. I like to post these kinds of trips to show that in the "real" world, you don't always walk out of the store having only shelled out a few bucks. Sometimes you spend a little more but it should never be at frugality's expense.

This week I purchased many of the "convenience foods" that were FREE or cheap with coupons, however, I also purchased chicken breast (two 2lb. plus packages), ground beef (three 1 lb. packages including one 97/3 lean), beef ribs (two small packages) shredded cheese (two packages), blackberries (two packs), hot dog buns (2), True North nuts (2), and several items that I'll donate.

Total before coupons: $129.32

Coupons Used: $47.87
Coupons Doubled: $30.67

Total out of pocket:

Remember, I do not include the ONE Card in my savings since Homeland's prices are so high. I don't feel this is an accurate reflection. Even without this amount, my savings percentage was still about 61%. I couldn't have done that at Walmart or Crest on all these items...even with coupons!
