I had decided last month that I was going to "watch my pennies" on the grocery shopping and try to get a baseline on what I was spending and saving. So, I'll be editing this post as I shop as I think I might try to keep a"running tally."
Today Cara and I went to the Hartville Market and Flea market to buy fruits and veggies. I got a little carried away and bought a new purse and shoes for my daughter too. I love this place things are so cheap! And you can find some pretty interesting stuff. For example, there is a Lego store in there and the owners spent what I am guessing is a good part of a year building this magnificent village out of Legos
How cool is that!?! The trains were running too. they also have packaes of silly bands for $1. I'm using one now to put my hair up LOL
Alas, I digress:
Running total for all foods at the farmer's market was $36
(I just googled the shoes I bought my daughter...i got them for $20 and they retail for $50!! Sadly I was reticent about even spending that much. Here is a pic of the shoes.)
After the market I headed to raisin rack to buy more protein powder: $46
Aug 1 food total $82 yikes!!
August 2 108.93 OOP saved 29.66 with coupons and card discount (27%)
August 8 33.11 OOP saved 19.64 (37%)
