$100 grocery Challenge: 2nd week of January
I was at $19.45 from last week. Let's see how I did this week.
I ran to Stop and Shop for a few items. I had some good digital coupons that I wanted to use. The Kind bar was free. The sugar was 19¢. Total spent at Stop and Shop was $5.35.
I was making a chick pea salad and ran out of Oregano. Hubby was out at the time so I asked him to stop at Dollar Tree. He got english muffins too. $2 spent at Dollar Tree.
I stopped at Dollar Tree later in the week. We were running low on tissues. I got a few other things while I was there.
I spent $15.95.
I went to Aldi's for eggs and fruit. This is where I went off track.
I bought 32+ pounds of ground beef. I spent $38.36 on it. Eggs were 96¢ a dozen. The cheeses were $1.99 each. The bananas were $1.17. Milk was $2.89. Potatoes were 4.29. Oranges were $2.29. The onions apparently didn't ring in. I didn't notice until I was home. Total spent was $57.78. I did get 2 free carts that were in the parking lot.
My total for shopping this week was 81.08. My total for the month is now $100.53. I know I will be buying more milk and veggies so I have allotted another $50. As long as I don't come across more amazing meat specials I should be fine. Our regular grocery budget is $500 so I will still be very happy with $150.
How are you doing? Did you find any get clearance on food this week?
