I got free lip gloss and cheap organic body spray at Victoria’s Secret.  Have you signed up for their club yet?  I got a $10 off any purchase coupon in the mail, and used it to get the organic spray.  And, the lip gloss was free with a bra sizing. I paid $1.35 for the organic maple syrup, and I believe the deal is still available HERE. The produce from the local co-op was $10.  We also got 4 big heads of brocolli that my Dad gave us this week, but those didn’t make it into the picture.

Weekly Total Spending: $9.11

YTD Spending: $1,693 ($38.48 weekly average over 44 weeks)

  1. It doesn’t seem to want to take my walmart link? I am so confused. I waited about 10 minutes and tried to resubmit, but it won’t show up.

    Anyways, I got 13 items for $13, including 8 boxes of cereal. A savings of 60%!
