My main shopping trip of this week was on Monday – although Monday seems like a distant memory. It’s funny how I forget the busy exhaustion of the final weeks of school. I intended to only shop at Meijer this week, but I did a quick little trip to Save-a-Lot later in the week. I started at Meijer, and here is what I bought there.
Potatoes, cauliflower, lettuce and a lime were my produce purchases. 5 pounds of potatoes were on sale for $1.99 but 10 pounds of potatoes are regularly priced at $2.99. I paid an extra dollar for 5 additional pounds of potatoes. That’s a good deal!
Milk, feta and all natural yogurt ($2) were my dairy purchases. Sugar, powdered sugar, coconut and canola oil were my baking purchases. 80% lean hamburger was on sale for $1.99/lb so I bought 4 pounds (since there was a 2 package limit).
I bought 5 more Natural items for the ongoing Organic / Naturals catalina. However, once again, my catalina didn’t print. Thankfully, I had a much nicer experience at the customer service desk this week. He looked at my items and my receipt, and scanned the cans again to produce a catalina. The first time, it only produced a $1 catalina. He scanned them again and got the proper $3 catalina – and let me keep the $1 catalina. I offered it back, but he insisted. So, I now have $4 to spend next week on natural products. Yay!
At Meijer, I spent $41.28. That was going to be it…until I realized I was out of onions.
My quick trip to Save-a-Lot found me buying the following. I ran in for an onion (to grill with my cauliflower) and added a couple more items.
I thought I got a good deal on Feta with the sale at Meijer ($2). It turns out that feta is regularly priced $1.59 at Save-a-Lot. Good to know! I spent $4.55 at Save-a-Lot.
I also received another dozen of farm fresh eggs this week for $1.50. I’m enjoying egg salad sandwiches for lunch and am going to make potato salad soon.
This week, I spent $47.33. That brings my monthly total to $92.35. I have one week remaining in the month, and almost half of my grocery budget. I see a good stocking up trip in my future! How are you doing budget wise?
