Another Grocery Bill

I haven't listed a grocery bill since this post, so I thought I'd record a more recent one. I was pretty happy that most of this stuff was on sale all at the same time!

2 gallons milk - $4.58 (but I actually got one free because of a milk coupon, so): $2.29
Head of romaine lettuce (1.34 lbs) - $2.00
Family Size bag tortilla chips - $2.79
2 lbs. cheese - $6.29
2 lbs. strawberries - $1.50 (awesome!)
bunch red grapes - $1.72
nectarines and peaches - $1.53
whole pineapple - $1.99
2 cantaloupes - $3.00
avocado - $1.00
container grape tomatoes - $2.50
cucumber - $1.00
blue cheese dressing (I'm always a sucker for this stuff, especially when it's on sale) - $2.50

Total: $32.40 + tax - $5-off coupon

Where do you typically shop?

Meijier. (Sometimes Kroger, but not regularly.)

wow good for you! You must rely heavily on wheat and rice to fill you up... cuz there's no way I could feed Dean on just that list ;)

Katrina said...

Wheat, rice, beans, potatoes... And when things like chicken or ground turkey go on sale, I stock up on them and put them in the freezer. So it's not as if these fruits and vegetables are all we eat for the week, they're just to supplement the other items we already have. :)

Brandi M said...

that makes sense. We need to watch our food budget more... food prices are super expensive here, and it's only getting worse! I can't wait til we get our garden veggies since that's where most of our money goes towards. Fruit trees are in the works, as well as more plants next year. And we're trying to get in on a 1/4 cow, which will save us TONS of money.

Katrina said...

That is awesome! I want to do all of those things as soon as we have the place and opportunity to do so. If you do get a cow share, I want to know all about it!

I'll tell you how it goes. As for gardening, I know that you're bummed because you just moved and weren't able to plant one this year. Even worse, you're moving to a COLD climate and won't be able to grow much. Be of good cheer- I found an alternative. I'll be posting a blog soon so keep a look out for it! I think we might try it or something similar this winter.

Katrina said...

I look forward to seeing it...once we have internet access again. Hopefully where we're going isn't any colder than where we've already gardened before so it won't be too hard. But I guess if I had to I could always build a greenhouse like the SFG guy teaches...
