Shopping Superstars

My best find this week was this Sunbeam Toaster Oven.  Regular retail is $29.99, and I got it for $12.48 at Target because someone had opened the box.  We have been without a toaster oven for a couple of months now because our previous one went on the fritz.  It wasn’t a big deal to just use our convention oven, especially since that helped our home stay warm during the cold months.  But with spring and summer just around the corner, I was definitely ready to have a toaster oven back in the kitchen.  So when I saw this deal I snatched it up.

As far as groceries go, I snatched up some free Artisan bread at Target along with some produce and other deals, and then went to Kroger to pick up a few mark downs.  I also stopped in Aldi, but am sad to report that I was not impressed at all.  Maybe I just hit them on a bad week, but the so called “bargains” were not bargains at all.  All the prices looked the same as they do at Kroger, and at Kroger I can use coupons.   The two deals I did spot were milk for $1.99 a gallon and baby carrots for .69 cents a bag.  Since we only drink organic milk around here, the milk didn’t tempt me.  But I definitely picked up two bags of preservative-free carrots.

Total spent on groceries this week: $17.50  Total saved: $104.58

YTD Spending: $432
YTD Savings: $1,740
Coupon Costs: $30

Sorry there is no picture again this week.  I’m still looking for the cable to upload pictures from my camera.

So how did you all do this week?  I can’t wait to see the deals you snagged!  Please link directly to your posts and not the main page of your website.  Don’t have a blog?  That’s okay.  Tell us how you did in the comment section.
