I'm only counting the grocery store and not anywhere else:

10/23 $211.90 with another 107.80 in savings
10/20 $ 3.49
10/17 $ 28.66 with another 4.97 in savings
10/14 $ 8.32 with another 1.82 in savings
10/9 $123.41 with another 92.77 in savings
10/2 $ 26.60 with another 3.00 in savings
10/2 $ 5.98

total spent so far but one more shopping trip to go:
$408.36 with another 210.36 in savings

that is interesting to me...getting the pantry stocked using coupons is worth it then

after I posted this I flipped back through the posts and lizzie boo's reminded me that I also got 6 glass bowls free and a 2 qt measuring pitcher pyrex in that weis store special with points

Shop Rite 71.69
Wegmans 45.25

Remaining for the month: 14.32

The Wegmans trip was for some weird specialty items that I can only get there--things I don't need to buy often, but when I do, they cost. I try to wait until I need several of those things before making the trip to a special store to get them.

Ispent about another $70-00, so I came in about $40-00 under! Well done me!
I am going to aim for $550-00 this month with warmer weather, it might be a bit cheaper, although fruit and veg are pretty bad at the moment!
