We are starting a new fall tradition at our place this week! I saw a FB friend post about it and thought it was such a great idea that we should steal it. Luckily, the hubs was on board so here’s the new tradish: fall soup week! Yes, that’s right, every night for dinner this week we’re having homemade soup! So, over the next few days we’ll be having Cheeseburger soup from eMeals, Spicy Corn Chowder (recipe to come soon!), Taco Soup and Low Fat Beef Stew! I absolutely <3 soup, so I’m pretty pumped for this new tradition.
Since we are making things based more on this new tradition than grocery store sales this week, I decided I should do the majority of our shopping for these ingredients at Walmart to save a little money. However, I still wanted to get a few ingredients for the soups that were on sale at Publix plus a few staples that I could’t pass up the low prices on.
This first shot is my Walmart trip. I got the necessities for soup ingredients, Dannon’s new Light ‘n Fit Greek vanilla yogurt which I had a $1/1 (printable from their website) coupon for, and some bananas. I spent $20.11 on this shopping trip.
Then, I ran in Publix and picked up these few items. All these items except for the diced tomatoes were on sale. I always get excited when they have Potato Inspirations on sale BOGO and couldn’t resist scooping up these little honey gold potatoes. There was a $.50/1 Muir Glen soup coupon out stacked with a sale that made this can of soup only $.67 for organic soup! Then I had a $.75/1 Dannon coupon I used so after all sales and coupons I saved $10.52 at Publix and spent $11.91.
So, after combining my Publix and Walmart totals I spent $32.02, well under my $50/week budget! How did you all do this week? Do you shop at 1 store each week or go to multiple stores to get the best deals?
