The November results are in


So I finished my grocery shopping for the month of November and there is much rejoicing going on here in this house! For this second half of this month my grocery/household total came in at $198.43. Included in this is about 35 pounds of turkey that I bought on sale for our freezer. Coupons, sales and CVS deals combined we saved us a of $207.15!!

This is amazing as far as I'm concerned. $361.23 spent. $239 under budget. $513.72 saved in November according to receipts. (I personally think these numbers are a little inflated) $9.15 CVS bucks to take me into December.

Now I'm on to figure out how to save money on gas and to do some research on turkey recipes.

That is so exciting!!! I've been enjoying some of those saving websites you shared. We even got 4 things of free broccoli and cauliflower from Target!

If you figure out how to save on gas, let us know! That budget item is killing us and we only drive a Civic!

I really want to do this - I have been looking on those websites and I think I am going to try to use the ads and coupons more wisely. How much time is it taking you each week?
