Frugal Grocery Shopping: I Saved $160 & 83%

 

Last week I once again stocked up on cereal, pancake mix and granola bars. I love it when Albertson's has their $1 a box sale! Several months ago they had this same sale.

Hubby just happened to be off work that day, so he went along with me. I had about 30 boxes in the cart. He didn't think it was enough and continued to add several more boxes. We ended up getting a total of 74 items, all for $1!

This time I didn't get nearly as many but I still saved a ton of money got a total of 57 items and I spent just $38.57.

I saved a total of $160.16 for a total of savings of 83%! It doesn't get much better (or cheaper) than that! I love shopping like this!

Have you gotten any great shopping deals lately?
