This week's grocery trip and back into the Drugstore Game!

I woke up bright and early to go grocery shopping this morning sans kids. It was -5 degrees out and still dark, but thankfully the roads weren't too slick and I managed to get to all the stores on my list safely.

Here's my trip this week:

I spent $83.45 on the above items this week, a little more than normal, but it balances out my $65/week budget after a $48 trip last week.
These items were absolutely free.
First Rite Aid trip as a Drugstore Game player in a while.

I haven't been playing the Drugstore Game in a while, mainly due to having another child and just not finding the time or energy to make one more trip to a store during the week. However, I'm teaching a couponing class in a couple months and wanted to get back into the "game." So here's my first trip to Rite Aid. I bought the above pictured items at a total of $7.01 after coupons and received $3 UP Rewards back onto my card for next time. I'm excited to see how much I can get for very little out of pocket, now that my first purchase has been made.

If you're new to the drugstore game, check out my explanatory post here.
