This week I spent $97.63 and saved $81.68 (about 46% savings).
The biggest deal for today was those coupons from the Friday paper I mentioned in my last post. All of them worked so I saved a total of $16 off my order.
I also want to mention that March is frozen food month (who knew?) so my HT had a ton of "tearpad" coupons in the frozen food section for all kinds of frozen stuff. Tyson bagged chicken (K loves their nuggets), frozen veggies, frozen pizza, frozen TGI Fridays appetizers, Kashi meals or pizzas, stouffers meals (including lean cuisine) and many more. They expire at the end of May. I took a bunch because we are getting a chest freezer for the garage this weekend and there may be some great opportunities to stock up in the coming weeks.
I did not do the Kellog's deal that HT has going (get $3 off 3, $4 off 4, or $5 off 5 boxes of cereal - plus there were Kellog's coupons on 2/7 and 3/7). My pantry is stocked with Big G cereals right now - we have to get through 6 boxes of cheerios, 1 box of special K, one box of Smart Start, and one box of Quaker Oatmeal squares before they expire at the end of the year. I'm sure I'll be shopping the cereals sales again in a few months though... :-)

There is also apparently a diaper promo that is similar only it's $50 worth that you need to buy.
