Savings Saturday: My Return to Drugstore Shopping

May 7th, 2011

I honestly cannot tell you the last time I made a Savings Saturday post. With all the house construction starting at the beginning of the year, saving and shopping was not a priority. I did keep within budget for the most part, I’d say, but we did some eating out and I shopped for shorter periods of time grocery wise.

I also haven’t really been to a drug store during that time period, which was giving me withdrawls, because I missed some REALLY good deals. Oh well, I didn’t NEED those deals, as my beauty supply is pretty well stocked. Now we’ll be on to diaper stocking!

Publix: Thanks to menu planning, I already had most of the necessary items I needed this week. I didn’t spend much at Publix (or save much – most items were produce), but spent my budget at Fresh Market for some meat.

Spent: $28.15
Saved: $4.93
