Frugal Friday

I think that I am going to post my shopping trips on Fridays. I kinda like the sound of 'Frugal Friday' and it allows my readers who come to check in on my savings know when to expect it.
I had an exceptional week of savings at Publix. I didn't need many groceries (thank you stockpile) but was in need of diapers. So, in order to stay under my $40/week budget, I needed to figure out an amazing plan...

I feel like I did a great job, but I totally forgot about the blueberries on sale at Kroger yesterday! I had meant to take some of my extra money and buy several cartons of these and freeze them for smoothies! Oh, well.. next time... I didn't have to buy milk this week because Kroger had the half gallons on sale last week for a special sale. I bought milk then and still managed to stay under budget.

How did you do this week?

What a great deal! I just can't get over that you paid for everything for less than you would have spent on the diapers! What a great trip! Way to go!
