Capturing the deals, watching my pennies

I hit several stores today, taking advantage of some loss leaders, sale plus coupon combos as well as addressing my goal of having what we need on hand for during my recovery period.

I spent $115.73 on actual groceries, food and non food items combined
I saved $40.77 in coupons, bag refunds, the quarter someone left in the slot at Aldi's, bottle returns.

See follow up posts for specifics. Since I sent college girl $100 for groceries to tide her over, I am deducting that from this month's grocery budget.
