My Weekly Shopping- Saved 75%

So thought I would try to take the time each week to show you where I usually shop and what coupons I use.  These stores were from Wednesday to today (that way I hit all the current sales).  Remember I live in an area where it is under a mile to each of these locations- I know for some of you this isn’t possible.

This week I didn’t really need much, so it was pretty lean. Wednesday I will be looking for some deals on fruit- this warm weather makes me want some! I did not include sales tax on my totals below.
