This Week's Shopping Trips
This week's shopping trips are combined with next week's too as I covered in a previous post (I wanted the fuel rewards if I went over 100.00 in one shopping trip at Carrs...it netted me 4x the fuel rewards doing that. The coupon has renewed itself too, so check your Just 4 U coupons to see if you can load it if you want it).
So anyway, all totaled I went to three stores the last week. One was Carrs, of course last Friday, where I picked up things like flavored water (for daughter's lunches this week), Gatorade, Cheetos, some chips and other "boy food". I didn't really get anything "wow" worthy, so I didn't bother to take a picture (that and most of it was shelf stable and was going to be down in the pantry or the laundry room (like the 3.00 things of cat litter I bought) so I REALLY didn't want to try and stack two weeks worth of groceries on our stairs to take a picture). All totaled I spent 103.00 after coupons and got my fuel rewards. Part of that was 10.00 my husband and I spent on lunch, which I don't count in the grocery budget, so that left me with about 30.00 for the rest of the two week period.
I then ran to the Franz outlet to see about what I could get for bread cheap. All of the bread I bought was on the 4/5.00 rack, so I got all of the above bread for 11.66 (the one Rustic Seeds loaf was free. If you spend five dollars or more there you get a free loaf of bread. I spent 11.66 because if you buy an odd amount you pay 1.66 instead of 1.25 for the item. :). This should be enough bread to last us about a month, so I was happy (and it will even meet some of the goals for feeding therapy like the bread sticks, so yay!). I like the buy the pre-sliced bread for toast as the kids definitely prefer it and also for quick dinners when I run out of home made bread (which does, occasionally happen).
So all totaled I spent 112.66 on groceries for two weeks, which leaves me about 8.00 or so for milk (luckily milk was part of the shopping trip so I think I will make it...if not I'll be close).
So, how did you do? Find anything neat the stores this week?
