My Harris Teeter Triples Trip 05/21

TOTAL PAID = $104.40
TOTAL SAVED W/ COUPONS = $26.65


Here it is in all it's glory.... My Monthly Shopping Trip! I spent half of our budget on all the essentials we will need for the next 4 weeks! We will still need to buy some bread, milk, fruit and most likely some snacks. But that shouldn't cost $100 so I should be savings LOTS this month! Time will tell!

This trip did take a lot of preparation... I did do 4 weeks worth of shopping in one day! And this took only about an hour of actual shopping. Not too bad, but I did have a little boy that skipped his nap, which didn't help!
  1. I made my Monthly Meal Plan.
  2. I made my Monthly Shopping List.
  3. I looked over the sale items and matched up my coupons.



Now that everything is home, the preparing is not over! I made my list of all the snacks and breakfasts I have, so that nothing goes to waste or gets forgotten. And I also made a list of things I plan on making this week. Part of saving is not letting anything go to waste!

Snacks: hard-boiled eggs, carrots & dip, chips w/ hummus, pretzels, granola bars, apple slices, almonds, dole fruit crisps, granola

Here's the thing... Anybody can clip some coupons and tell you they saved $20. But look what they really bought. Is it more than just condiments? ;) Did they buy any fresh fruits, meats, dairy or vegetables? Can you actually make an entire meal with what they've bought? Or do they actually post all of their trips? Some people will just post their coupon trips, but ALL of their trips are not so frugal. Of course any amount saved counts, but make sure you're really learning how to save and spend wisely!
