So, I went to Winco (which I hate, but whatever.)  My sub-total was $81.15 and I used $19.07 worth of coupons.  I bought my milk at Walmart (I’m there 3 times a week and it’s inexpensive there) and I got the yogurt at Freddies since that’s the only place I can find it for now.  But those were free, so they don’t count.

So, I saved 23% off my grocery bill this week by 1) sticking to my list (very hard for me to do!) and 2) using coupons.
