Groceries this week
I had lots of stuff other than groceries to get so I did not think I would make my $70 goal, but i did just barely; my total was $69 and change.
I got: 2 bags of whole wheat flour (clearance 1/2 off) 1 box of oat bran (clearance) 1 box of provia- stevia- a natural calorie free sweetener to try (clearance) bag of apples 4 garlicky grill mates 2 bags of croutons 3 cans of fruit 3 romatomatoes butter loaf of french bread frozen edame frozen broccoli florets 2 sweet onions large container of organic vanilla yogurt 1/2 gallon of organic milk store brand miracle whip blueberries diapers 2 soft packs of wipes freezer paper ziplock bags 2 electric toothbrushes hubs deodorant watermelon
Chicken breasts are on sale for $1.77lb this week. I did not feel like messing with the whole dividing packages thing this weekend but I probably will go back on Tuesday before the sale ends and get some and deduct that from next weeks grocery budget.
