What We’re Buying {Week of April 15th}

 

This week I was able to run out grocery shopping while my mother-in-law watched the girls at home.  It is so much easier and quicker shopping without children!  I hit up four stores in two hours.  Here’s what I have to show from it.

Target

  • Gerber mesh feeding ring ($3.00) -$1/1 = $2.00
  • Gerber pack of spoons ($2.69) -BOGO coupon = FREE!
  • Archer Farms Organic Whole milk ($3.79)

Total = $6.19

Costco

  • Almond Milk, 3pk 64 oz. ($7.79)
  • Eggland Best Eggs, 18 ct. ($2.79)
  • Disney Chicken Nuggest, 5 lbs. ($11.99)
  • Bananas, 3 lbs. ($1.39)
  • Organic Spinach, 1 lb. ($4.49)
  • Organic Tortilla Chips ($5.29)
  • Chicken Salad, 2 lbs. ($12.57)

Total = $47.19

My Costco trip was a bit high this week because I splurged on a couple items for company we had coming over.  The chicken salad and chicken nuggets were my splurges.  But because I did so well at Publix (see below), I stayed under my $80 budget for the week!!

Publix

  • 2 Crusty 5 Grain Bread Baton ($1.29) – $1/1 coupon wyb Kraft cheese x2 = $0.29 each
  • Lettuce head ($1.49) – $1/1 coupon wyb Kraft cheese = $0.49 each
  • Banana ($0.27) – $1/1 coupon wyb Kraft cheese = FREE + overage
  • 2 Clif Crunch granola bars, 10pk. (2/$5) – $1/1 coupon x2 = $1.50 each
  • 2 Kraft Cheese block, 8 oz. ($1.75)
  • 2 Kraft Sliced cheese ($1.50)
  • 3 Silk Fruit & Protein drinks, 1 qt. ($2.00) – $1/1 coupon x3 = $1.00 each
  • 2 Alexia Sweet Potato waffle fries ($3.00) – $1/1 coupon x2 + $0.75 Publix coupon x2 = $1.25 each
  • Sea Salt Pita Chips ($2.99) – $2/1 Publix Deli item = $0.99 each
  • Hawaiian Sandwich Rolls, 4pk. ($2.99) – $2/1 Publix Deli item = $0.99 each
  • 2 Shell Gas cards ($25.00) – $10 wyb $25 in groceries = $20 each

After a $5/30 Winn Dixie coupon, my total was $52.30, which included the two $25 gas cards!  Hubby took $50 out of the gas fund for the gas cards, so I really only spent $2.30 for all of my groceries!!  And I saved $42.84!!  Not sure if I figured the percentage right, but I am pretty sure I saved 95%! :)

I also ran by the bread outlet and paid $2.07 for 3 loaves of Nature’s Pride whole wheat bread, not pictured.

This week I managed to stay $20 under my grocery budget, which never happens!  But I am really trying to get better about not grabbing every deal and buying only what we will really use and need.  :)
