Grocery Shopping

by GettingFreedom on November 8, 2008

I did all my grocery shopping for the next 2 weeks yesterday. I’ve been saying this for quite some time now, but yesterday finally convinved me….I’m DONE shopping on Fridays!!! I would rather go on Monday. Walgreen’s was all out of deals, again…..and every store (I only went to 3) was packed! I waited in the checkout line at WalMart for over 1o minutes…and I was next in line! I’m not a huge fan of random clothes shopping…but I love to grocery shop and bargain shop…it is very relaxing to me…but not when the store is crammed full, and the cashiers move slower than a 7 year itch!

Anyway…I was exhausted when I came home yesterday…so I didn’t snap a pic. Plus…there wasn’t any stellarly awesome deals.

I did manage to get all of the items needed for the next 2 weeks meals (minus eggs and sausage I’m picking up at a local grocery store. Total of about $6 for 2 dozen eggs and 4 saugages) and stock up on meat and flour AND come in under budget! Oh yeah!

I spent a total of $128 (I round up). Leaving me with $22.

I bought:
10 lbs of hamburger meat ($1.30/lb!!) $13 (this is enough for 10 meals)
(2) 5 lbs Whole Wheat Flour (used (2) $1 off coupons) $3.72 (DH siad with all the baking I’ve been doing lately, all the flour will be gone by the next shopping trip in 2 weeks! Lets hope it lasts a bit longer than that!)
(2) Scott Extra Soft (Used $1 MQ and .75 MQ) $3.61
Chocolate Syrup $1.28
Vinegar (for fabric softener) $2.18
Sandwich bags, 100ct $2.48
Ronzoni Smart Taste Spaghetti (used $1 MQ) .50
(2) Carnation Evaporated Milk (Used $1/2 MQ) .88
(2) Roast Beef LM $5.76
(2) Starkist Creations Tuna (used (2) $1 MQ) $1.44
BBQ Sauce $1.16
Creamer $1.97
(2) Chunk Pineapple (finally remembered to buy it!) $1.88

(2) Pledge Wipes (used (2) $1.50 Q) $1.76
Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner (Used $2 Q) .46

Heavy Whipping Cream $1.59
Pancake Mix $1.29
Eggo Mini Muffin Tops (treat) $1.89
Powdered Milk $5.99 (I’m going to try and use this exclusively in baking. I was going to do the half milk, half powdered milk in the jug…but then I realized that this is no cheaper than if I were to buy a gallon of milk. It is actually higher! So…I’m curious as to what everyone else pays for powdered milk)
3 lbs Long Grain Rice $1.79
Brown Sugar .88
(2) Cream Cheese $1.98

***Oh…forgot to add that I went to the bread store and picked up 3 loaves of Sara Lee Honey Wheat Bread for $3.12 after tax. That brings my total to $131.00***

**I’ve had a lot of questions over the past month or so asking me what my $300/mo buys…so I thought that I would give everyone an insight into my trips. Hopefully I can get switched to shopping on Mondays, and I will be able to put up pics.
