Tom Thumb Shopping Trip - 74% Savings



    I had a very successful shopping trip at Tom Thumb this weekend! And the best part is - I'm stocked on meat for the next 2 months!

    Here's what I got:

    5 - 3lb Chuck Pot Roasts (Original Price: $4.99/lb - Sale Price: $1.96/lb)

    5 lbs of boneless/skinless chicken breasts (Sale Price: $1.77/lb)

    2 - 6oz packages of Beggin' Strips doggie treats (Sale Price: $3/ea)

    1 - 2 liter Pepsi (99¢)

    1 Fosted Mini Wheats ($3.29)

    1 - 1lb Lucerne Butter ($2.49)

    1 Texas Garlic Toast (2.50)

    1 Loaf of Bread ($1.19) **This is not a great price, but I always need a loaf of bread for my hubby!

    Total Before Coupons/Reward Card = $122.47

    Coupons I used:

    Grand Total (OOP) = $32.05

    Total Saved = $90.42 (74%)

    As you now know, my weekly budget is $40! I have to confess - I went WAY over this week. I think I spent close to $100 (I'm scared to add it all up) BUT I know I got the absolute best price available on my goods. I'm going to have to make up for the excess though! Next week's challenge = $20 weekly budget!! AUGH!!
