Here are my digits for this week’s grocery shopping.
Kroger Trip #1: $22.74
Kroger Trip #2: $27.95 (I had to stock up on more of Annie’s Mac & Cheese 🙂 You can also see that I purchased stew beef off “manager special.” I love stew beef for various dishes, but I don’t like the price. Whenever I see it on manager special, I grab it. It expired the day I bought it, but I immediately split it up into smaller servings and froze it. I have 4 meals of stew beef for around $11 total. I used the pork ribs for dinner that night. I will have a future post on the cost-saving benefits of buying “manager specials.”)
Meijer: 38.07 (I forgot to take a picture of this grocery trip, but the highlights included: Almond Milk for $1.50 after sale and coupon; whole chicken fryer for 85¢/lb; Cascadian Farms cereal for $2.00 after sale and coupon; Sunbutter on clearance for $3.19; 5 lbs of apples to make homemade apple butter)
Aldi: $10.01 (They had delicious Olive Oil Cracked Pepper & Salt kettle chips on clearance for 99¢…such a weakness.)
Drug Mart: $1.25 for bananas (They sell them for 29¢/lb.!!)
Total for the week: $100.02 (Wow! My goal for grocery spending is $100/week.)
Wonder where the veggies/fruit are? Don’t worry…we are stocked up from last week.
