Coupon Savings Monday!

The honest to God truth is that I didn't really need to spend much on groceries this week. We spent over a hundred dollars last week, and have more than enough food in the house, but then I look at the sales, and I can't help but jot down everything I see! My thought process during this time is, "That's a really good deal. I don't need it. But what if it never happens again?!" So, then I get, whatever it may be. Here is my lists of things that I didn't need, but got any way, because it was a really good deal!

I'm not so proud of this grocery trip, and kind of tempted to take some of the things back, but I don't guess I will. I'm thinking my head was all the way in this, as it usually is. Last week was just such a wonderful week, this week was kind of depressing. I've should have just stuck with the things I needed to get and not add anything extra.
