So it was the second week of my NO COUPON EXPERIMENT.
Here was my weekly shopping.

Trip Total: $92.74
Monthly Total: $143.99
It was another week of not using a coupon. And to be honest, it was a little bit liberating. However, when I see what my monthly total is so far, it is a little scary. Most of the items I’ve purchased have been either fresh or “we need” them. I can see shopping like this for long periods of time would kill my budget.
I’m still always amazed at how much I can get at ALDI for the money. However, I screwed up and bought the wrong kind of bouillon so I’ll have to go back some other time this month.
And the blackberries from the Hen House CSA – AMAZING.
What about you? Are you shopping with coupons less this month? Have any amazing deals I should know about? Leave me a comment.
