My Grocery Deals 5/16-5/31
It’s been a while since I did a tally of what I’ve been spending.
Yes. I have been a slacker.
But I’m here to give a BIG update of all my spending and savings since my last update:My Grocery Deals May 1-15- 77% Savings.
I use a Savings Tracker spreadsheet which does all of the math for me and a great way to keep track of your receipts! You can check it out HERE
You can also view my video on it:
So let’s cover the May 16- 31st first:
5/20 Meijer run- Retail value $40.90- spent $6.10

May 31-st I scored the Mulch deal. Getting 10 bags for just $17.67- however I didn’t have to pay anything since I had a Meijer Gift Card (from doing surveys from MSU) so this was a total FREEBIE for me!

I spent WAY over my $300 monthly budget for May. However, I did several stock up deals w/ the MEGA sale that was at the beginning of May.My Weekly Grocery Trip: Kroger MEGA Coupon Haul
