Grocery Shopping

by GettingFreedom on December 11, 2008


Please excuse the disaster mess going on behind this picture..oh and the sun that was blindingly shining through the window. I’m not complaining…

I bought some stuff-stuff this time at Wal-Mart. I generally try not to do this…but I made the mistake of going down the kitchen aisle. That is my weakess ya’ll…and it got me! But, those items come off my “blow” and not my grocery. Still yet, I had to show ‘em off…cause I’m in love! I really could have done some damage, instead I wrote everything I wanted down (ahem, like a new crockpot, food processor, and a roaster majiggy) and handed prices and all to the husband when I came home. Ya know what he said? “K, go get ‘em, wrap ‘em up, slap a bow, and write my name on ‘em.” Um, no.

Here it goes:

Pack of light bulbs $6.44 (I really do not like buying these things!)
Pack of water filters $4.77
Roll of Hamburger $9.64
Olive Oil $4.78 (just a side note here…this is almost a dollar cheaper at Aldi! Gah! I didn’t even know they had it until I went there…of course after I already bought this one!)
Pork Hocks $2.77
Dried Pinto Beans $.94
Brown Rice $1.58
Baking Hen $5.19
Fruit Snacks $3.92
Spaghetti $1.74
(4) Lunchmeat $10 (I was lucky enough to find them still w/the $1 peelies)
Creole Seasoning $1.46
Coffee Filters $1.12
1 Gallon Jar $7.63
Juice Chiller $3.97 (I absolutely love this thing..perfect for OJ)

The only coupons I used this time were the (4) $1 peelies for the lunchmeat. I bought a couple things for the husband and a candy bar for Noah.

My total was: $90.01, but of this only $60 was grocery items (took off for the chiller, jar, candy bar and 2 items for DH..not pictured)

Basically $6 under budget, and I bought more stuff that wasn’t actually on my list this time. The ham hocks and pinto beans were a spur of the moment meal idea. Honestly, I’m not exactly sure why I picked them up this week, because I already have my menus planned out for this week and next. Apparently it just sounded good!
