My thoughts:  It seems to me that I did much better the last four weeks (I'm sure some of that has to do with the stockpiling I did in the first 4 weeks).  I have learned that Walgreen's is a great store if you know what you are looking for and what coupons, RR, and points match up with.  I am glad that I decided to document my spending as it is making me much more aware as to what I am spending.  I think that I am going to change my goal a little from $100 a week to $400 in a 4-week spread as I need to be able to stock up on things I need when they come on sale rather than trying to stick to the $100 a week limit.

Lets hope that the next few weeks bring some fantastic deals!!! :)
