Been awhile since I actually held onto my receipt.. I'm doing this more for my benefit because I tend to overlook what I spend because I'm so excited about what i save.
total savings: approx 91% based on the total of what I would have spent which is 502.xx.
Mind you..... this wasn't all groceries. It was deoderants, body wash, lotions, meds, makeup, etc. I did stock up on poptarts and gogurts and mcormick maranaids to last us quite awhile. Since our tax is around 10%, if you think about it, I just paid taxes on everything:) Not bad for a weeks worth!
