So I ran to Winn Dixie (read post below), got my $10 off $50 coupon,,,,
So ofcourse I HAD to go ahead and RUN to Publix!
We are trying to stay at $10.00 A WEEK TOTAL
I spent $3.76 at Winn Dixe and had planned to be not quite $8.00 at Publix......
Well, there was a man in line at the checkout in Publix, 2 boys in the cart (1 toddler, and 1 small baby), I noticed he had some Yoplait yogurt (only 1) and had several other items (it came to $73.84 WOW!! and NO COUPONS!!!) he was talking to the bagger about how he had lost his job and he is MR. MOM now. I offered him a coupon for the yogurt (I no its not much, but I also told him about coupons, several sites to go to and how I hope the Lord Blesses them at this time). He thanked me and left.
My order came around and my total WOULD HAVE BEEN $125.97 RETAIL!!!!! WOW after coupons it was $15.50 WITH OUT TAX $19.37 with Tax WOW OVER BUDGET!!!!!! But I stocked up on Carol Beth's chefboyardee's.
When I got home there was a $10.00 rebate check in the mail I sent off for around the end of last year!!!!So I will put that in our budget!
Our totals $39.17 balance left (.83 sauerkraut)
$3.76 Winn Dixie
$9.37 Publix (was $19.37 but I put that $10.00 rebate check toward grocery budget!)
So our total left for the month: $26.04!
I went $3.13 over our $10.00 total! The Good Lord will PROVIDE ALL OUR NEEDS AT ALL TIMES!!! I am so greatful!
