I did spend more tonight b/c I bought a few items that were more expensive to begin with & I also was shopping for a friend.

*I make my own laundry detergent & I add WASHING soda to my laundry so getting it for $2.49 a box is a good price…

especially since no one else sell it except HT!

*more FREE danactive & danimal yogurt

*Panko bread crumbs $.99

*RC $.99 A1 marinade + Qn good for steak, used $6 in ONYO coupons to get a free rib eye.  The steak wasn’t that much, but my ONYO counted toward other stuff.

*Zatarans- $.83 a box LOVE THIS STUFF!

*did the pilsbury deal again

*did the buy 20 save $6 instantly on both cards

*more Green Giant veggies— I think I made up for how awful our garden did on everything except tomatoes!

*more progresso soup—Brad said I didn’t buy enough the night before!

Although I rarely get it for $.60 a can, so I was fine with buying more!

Overall it was a GREAT week at Harris teeter.

left with $13.98 ECB

My transaction is on the left and paidcash out of pocket entirely b/c I didn’t have any low value ECB and there wasn’t much I wanted to buy.  Brad’s purchase was on the right and he paid less then $2 for both items and left with 9 ECB.  Good quick trip since I had to run in and get a Rx.

then hubby called and said he need lots of refrigerated pie crust…

I spent $16. on 6 boxes of pie crust.  And yes I had coupons 😦   I really need to learn how to make a good pie crust.  Pie crusts are so OVER PRICED for what actually goes in them.

$16 not included in above totals, but will be in monthly totals!
