Weekly Savings + Success Stories

It was a way under budget shopping week for me! I spent $33 at Aldi, filling the fridge with produce. 

I also hit up Harris Teeter Super Doubles, spending under $2 on over $50 worth of groceries on my first trip. Gotta love those pharmacy credits, which paid for most of the Harris Teeter bill! I was able to snag some inexpensive, healthy snacks, like almonds and trail mix, and I scored packages of tofu for just $0.19 each! What a great find, especially now that baby is such a big fan! 

On my second trip to Harris Teeter,  I spent $6.10 on $35 worth of goods, an 83% savings. scoring inexpensive toilet paper, ice cream, and cereal.

If you're interested, you can check out my Harris Teeter coupon matchups here. The Super Doubles sale runs through next Tuesday evening, 2/21.
