As a refresher, I set a goal for January 2015 of only spending $150 on perishables and $200 on Non-perishables. Perishables was dairy/fruits/veggies/seafood/GREAT deals. Non-perishables would include cleaning products/canned goods/paper goods. I set these limits based on full freezers and the Shop Rite Can-Can sale.
As of January 22 my figures are:
Perishable funds left $66.61 and Non Perishable funds left $103.82
Yesterday I spent $7.32 at the produce market on salad ingredients lettuce/pepper/tomato/2 cucumber/package of mushrooms.
At Shoprite I spent $10.93 after coupons on 4 bottles of All Detergent and 4 boxes of Scotties facial tissue. I also received back a $5.00 on next shopping trip due to the pre-sale price of the All! Nice triple play! If I include this kickback into my All purchase that means I paid .44 per bottle. Not my favorite brand, but cheap is cheap!
The balance of my shoprite purchases were all perishables. Dairy, Juice, another Cooks Shank Ham for just .99 a pound (limit 1) and fruit. Total spent 39.39.
I was also gifted a dozen farm eggs from a student. I plan on tasting one of these eggs this weekend!
Funds left to spend until February 1st:
Perishables $19.90 and Non-Perishables $92.89
So, the question for you is, do I spend it all just to spend it, or do I put it in the savings account? I admit, I am getting (or already am) addicted to the deal finding and putting money away.
