   I'm not planning to shop any more until Feb 1st (next Wednesday), so all the money that is left will go towards my trampoline fund. I was really hoping to have $50 left but oh well, I can't complain. I'm still way under my budget this month. Wohoo!!


  1. Exactly! Be happy with the success you've had!! Good job! :)

  2. Really, you had to get a raincheck for eggs? Probably because of people like me who buy 5-6 dozen when they go on sale.

    1. Well, at least, we CAN get rainchecks, right? :)

  3. 99 cents for a dozen eggs is an amazing deal. We normally pay $1.99 a dozen and up, usually more in the $2.19 range. There is a deal on this week for them at $1.88 per dozen limit 2 and I actually have a coupon for $1 off when you buy 2 dozen, so I am taking advantage of that.

    Well done on having over $45 towards your trampoline fund.

    1. We usually have eggs in the $1.79-1.99 range here, so yeah, I was excited about 99c price! It's awesome that you have coupons for eggs! We rarely get some printables, and I've never seen one in a paper. But you are so good with coupons!!:)

  4. must be so happy when you look at the bill!!

  5. Great job! I've never tried price-matching at Walmart. But I just might give it a try, seeing your results!

    Thanks for linking up with Wednesday Weekly Shopping at Frugal Follies!  Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Laura.I LOVE price-matching at Walmart! But then it'sthe closest storeto our house, it's literally 5 minute walk. And most of the produce in our store is fairly nice. And it saves me so much time too!!
