Busy Monday! Jakob started 1st Grade and Saving at the Stores!

Ashlyn and I had a busy day after dropping Jakob off for his first day of First Grade!  It seems really odd to still be off of work, but I am still enjoying my time off with her of course.  :) We went to the bank, Staples, Target, and Kroger.  I used a $6.00 reward from turning in empty print cartridges at Staples and picked up paper for my students along with cord cover so my students or I do not trip over the cords running from my projector to my computer.  Using my $6.00 reward, I spent $7.30 and saved approximately 45% off my purchase!

At Target, I returned an item and then quickly before getting the Kids SpinBrush Toothbrush for Jakob.  They are normally $5.79 and were on sale for $4.63 and I had a $1.00 coupon!  Between all the savings including my Target card, I spent $3.26 and saved $2.78!

Kroger did not have everything I was looking for today, but next week's ad is the same to my knowledge according to Southern Savers.  I spent $36.03 and saved $35.65 or 49% today!  I might check back next week for the items they were out of stock on with next week's purchases.  Here's the break down of everything I purchased today at Kroger. Items in red are the coupons and Kroger still triples coupons that are 35 cents (or less) to a $1.00 and doubles coupons that are 40-50 cents up to a maximum of $1.00.  No pictures this week...Ashlyn was hungry about halfway through my trip - had to stop and let her have a bottle!  So overall, I was pretty exhausted after all the trips.  We are on track of our weekly spending goal of no more than $100 counting everything from groceries, household, fast food, etc!  This should really help with our budget especially with Ashlyn starting school soon too!
