Saturday Savings – A Wow Week!

I apologize for the late posting this week! I usually like to have this go up early Saturday morning so that my Kansas City friends can scope out the deals prior to hitting the stores themselves, but I had to go this morning. Why? Because Hy-Vee is having an amazing 6 hour sale that started at 8am this morning! I do believe this was my biggest shopping and savings trip to Hy-Vee yet…

Sorry the table is a big jumbled mess! I wasn’t even sure it would all fit, so I wasn’t overly concerned with display. Oh and I have to give credit to Nick for the tower on the table (he and Chase were crouched behind it in the picture). Everything you see here cost me just $86.80, but wait until you see what it retails for!

For those new to my blog – Saturday Savings is my weekly chronicling of my journey to spend just $310 a month on our family groceries, toiletries, paper products and cleaning supplies. With just an hour or so of coupon clipping and research a week and some quick shopping on the weekend, I almost always meet my goal (or come under, as I did last month by $15!).
