Grocery Budget Update for the Month of September

I posted here last month about the terrible job I did sticking to my grocery budget. ( I ahve lots of excuses as to why I spent so much!) I budget for $500 in groceries and $150 for dining out each month.

A few notes about my budget:

  • I consider "groceries" in my household not only food items, but health and beauty, baby items, and paper goods. Paper towels, diapers, cold medicine....its all in there.

  • I oftne buy items that I recieve a rebate for later. I consider rebate income as "income" and do not count it against my grocery budget. I want to stay within $500 regardless of what I will make back later.

  • I sold lots of my stockpile itmes in our yard sale this month. That is also "income" and does not count agaist the grocery budget.

August Totals: Groceries $771, Dining Out $281 = $1,052

September Totals: Groceries $512, Dining Out $156 = $688

Savings of $364 over last month! Of course, I have tons of excuses yet again about why I even spent this much - we had family visiting for my son's first birthday, I did some stockpiling on diapers...I could go on, but I will just keep trying to whittle down for next month!

For October, I am going to alter my budget a little so that I have more money to dine out with and less for groceries. With our house on the market, I know it is inevitable that we will eat out more during showings. Lets hope it sells fast!

Time to Print new Coupons!

Red Plum has resent with some great new coupons for Libby's, Del Monte, and others. Don't see the coupons you want? Play around with entering different ZIP codes for different parts of the country.
It would be a good idea to check the BRICKS master list of coupons now as there are a lit of new ones out there. This is one of my favorites:
Save $1 on ANY one Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls or Italian Meal Breads - includes any Loaves, Bread sticks, Dinner Rolls and Pizza Crust: IE or Firefox
Pair this with a sale and Homeland and it will certainly equal FREE after it doubles. Wohoo!

Needed this great Mail Day today

Thought I would share my excellent mail day today. I found out I have the flu today and my youngest does too. :( The worst part is that we just put our house on the market and it was supposed to show this evening for the first time. Bummer! Anyway, these surprise goodies did lift my spirits a little.
I received:
Rebate check for the Kellogg's Fuel for School program
Rebate check from Blue Bunny (this one arrived in less than a month!)
$2/1 coupon for any Blue Bunny
Fiber One Bar and Fiber One cereal sample
Coupons for Fiber One products
Info on the Flumist Vaccine from Vocal Point. I found this quite ironic considering my current circumstances! Either way - I'm not a fan of live virus vaccines, but just had to include it in the photo.

Free Smuckers Uncrustables!

This is a great freebie for Mammas or anyone who love PB&J! Go over here and leave an after school organization tip. The first 20,000 to do so will receive a coupon for a FREE 4-pack of Smucker's Uncrustables sandwiches!

New Savings at Sears - $10 of ANY purchase

I am excited to try out this offer - $10 off of any Sears purchase! I tried to use my $10 coupon from here today and it did not go so well. The cashier, (an elderly woman, who did not look so happy) refused to take the coupon. I could have made a big deal about it, but with my two kids getting fussy and tired and shopping, I just left.
This NEW Sears offer sounds much better:
Use this coupon code "17SEARSAPPAREL" at Sears and get $10 off any purchase!! Even clearance!!! If your total is under $10 it just takes off your whole total...Shipping starts at $6.25 or choose free in-store pickup. Coupon expires November 14. Let me know if you snag something good!

Update to the Weatherford Homeland Super Doubles

I made a Homeland trip to Weatherford today and found out the Super Double coupons that end tomorrow are for ANY amount coupon! Needless to say, I am going back tomorrow! How about doubling those high value $3 Sara Lee Lunch meat IP's and some air fresher kits? Horray!

Another plus? Since the new Walmart opened this week, the Homeland store is deserted. You cna shop in total quiet. Well, not total quiet. My kids were with me!

Great video for couponing newbies

This sums up the couponing process for all those who need some help. There is a great video on Hip 2 Save. Check it out here! The fact she is at the store with out her kids in tow certainly helps!

Love a Great Mail Day!

Here is what I recieved in the mail today:

2 Discount coupons for the GAP

Sample of Honey Nut Cheerios with a $1/1 coupon

2 free Hallmark greeting cards

Sample of Dove Heat Defense Shampoo and Conditioner with a $1/1 coupon

Super Exciting Super Doubles!

I just found out some exciting news from A Full Cup - Homeland in nearby (to me at least)Weatherford, OK is having double coupons up to $2!!!! I have been a little behind on the deals this week as it was my youngest son's first brithday and we had family in town to celebrate. However, I would have been very upset if I would have missed this!
Super Doubles end Tuesday, so I am head there tomorrow with both kids in tow (not such a great idea, but will a have to try it!) Weatherford has a new Walmart Supper Center open this week. Guess Homeland is trying to keep up. All the better for us! I will report back on my bargain shopping trip.

Thoughts on Walmart Shopping....

A friends aske me yesterday, "Do you really think you can do better at Homeland with coupons, than just shopping at Walmart?" I have heard this before (and I am sure many of you a have too) and have a few thoughts on the subject:
  • The answer is YES. You CAN do better at asving money Homeland or whatever your local high priced supermarket than Walmart but....
  • Your supermarket has to double coupons like Homeland does. This is how youg et FREEBIES! It is pretty rare to get free items at Walmart, though you can get may for cheap.
  • The same goes for Walgreens. As you may know, I love shopping there, but it does take WORK matching up sales, register rewards, and coupon. However, it pays off!
  • You MUST be willing to follow the sales and match coupons accordingly.
  • For staple items that you really need or buy generic, I say head to Walmart. You won't be able to beat their prices. However, if you are stockpiling when you find a really cheap or free sale, you will drastically reduce the times you buy something at full price.
  • If you take this a step futher and begin Meal Planning, see post here, then you will really start saving some $$$.
  • Target has gotten VERY competitive with Walmart prices. I ahve enven foudn some lower prices at Target than Walmart lately., If you you are lucky enough to have a Super Target near you, they are great for staples as well. With all your savings you can drift over to Starbucks for treat! :)
  • IF you are NOT willing to use coupons dilligently, follow sale ads or my blog:), then stick with Walmart. As they say, "Always low prices."

As for me, I headed over to a nearby brand new Walmart Super Center today. I needed a few things for my son's birthday party this weekend and to feed family coming in from out of town. For produce, it was hard to beat Walmart's prices. However, I will still be making my weekly trip to Homeland for my freebies!

Going Shopping this Weekend?

There are tons of great sales, coupons and discount codes right now, so here are a few you might want to take with you before you hit the mall for some new clothes!

My Walgreens Trip Today

Here was my WAGS run today. I took advantage of the double Triaminc RR deal. I also spent some RR I needed to use. ($13 worth, I think.)
Total OOP - $13.42 (includes $3.29 in tax)
RR Received $24
= $10.58 Profit :)

Oh...Yet another great moneymaker at Walgreens!

I had read on Hip 2 Save that the Triaminic deal at Walgreens would print not 1 but 2 $5 Register Rewards when you purchase the liquid Night Time Cold and Cough Formula. I tried it out today and it worked! Here was my deal:
2 Triaminic = $10
- $1.50 IP (I only had one and I think the print is dead now)
- $4 from the $2 WAGS coupon in the Healthy Savings Book (will deduct $4)
- $10 Register Rewards
= FREE = $4.50 PROFIT!!!!

Obviously, even without an IP, this is still a great money maker! I wold love to know if this has worked for anyone who bought the Night Time Think Strips instead of liquid. I love money maker deals on products my family really uses!

True North at Walgreens - a BIG Money Maker!

It's been reported that some of the True North Snacks at Walgreens have "try me free" rebate forms attached. If you are lucky enogh to find one of these AND use the $1 off coupon - WOW! What a great deal:
$3 sale price
- $1 IP from here
- $3 Mail in Rebate
- $3 Register Rewards
= + $4 Profit!
I am headed to Walgreens now! These look tasty anyway!

My Tulle Clothes Arrived!

I came home from my trip today and was welcomed by the items I had ordered from a couple weeks ago. See post here. I ordered 3 items and I am happy to report that 2 fit well and all are excellent quality! The itmes are sized a little small, as I ahd been warned. My total for these 3 tiems including shipping was just a little mroe than $20, so a great deal! I will report in future Tulle sales so you can take advantage of this great site.

Rebate Reminder

Thought I would post a little reminder about rebates:
I was doing a little shopping today and thought I would purchase a few items to take advantage of the current rebate offers from Blue Bunny and Tyson that I had not participated in yet. I was at the check out realized that I needed a receipt for BOTH the ice cream and the Skillet Creations to send in for rebate! I quickly asked the girl to ring up one of these items separately. Leasson learned? Try to do only one rebate per shopping trip to avoid shorting yourself an original register reciept to turn in for refund!
