Learning to stretch a dollar

So over the weekend I had to make a double trip to Publix. The second trip was because I’d completely run out of milk and oj. Instead of running into the store to get just those two things and spend oh around 6 bucks I decided to put together a trip large enough to use a 5/25 purchase.
This is how well I did:

Instead of spending $6 on two things, I spent $6 on several things!
Learn how to make your money work for you and not the other way around.
Later on, I will post the breakdown of both trips to publix and my trip to CVS. All in all I spent $18 this weekend on around $200 worth of groceries/household things.
