Lots of little shops at the stores this week.
In between doing other things it seems I am constantly running to the grocery store.
Well at least I get some exercise shopping this way. lolz

On the way to pick up College Boy from school I stopped at the Surplus Outlet to see what they had I could use for cheap.......

After sale/coupons, the chili was .50¢ a can, the facial tissue .53¢ a box and the OM smoked sausage was $1.49.
I will also get a $1 rebate for buying the pizza from SavingStar as that is their freebie offer this weekend.

College Boy requested cheese steaks for dinner on Saturday so I changed up the menu plan and bought those steaks and rolls.  CB will also eat that pizza for lunch one day while he is home.

Saturday while at Rite-Aid to pick up an rx I bought this........

Savings rate of 49% plus I earned a .75¢ off ur next order Catalina for buying the pickles.




Then I bought $100 in gift cards using household maintenance and eating out funds for 2016.........


This earned me a $10 off your next order Catalina and 20 gas points.
I plan on using that $10 oyno Q to help pay for the roast I am going to cook for Christmas dinner.

This brings my weekly grocery spending to $100.21 on $213.64 reg. retail worth of groceries so I am at 53.10% savings rate for this week.
Even so, I am going to have to slow down if I am going to stay at/under $350 of spending for the month.
