Today’s grocery trip was not a full grocery trip – it’s more of a fill in the gaps until the next big grocery trip kind of day. I spent $78 on everything you see here. Mind you that little light bulb in the lower lefthand corner was $4 , the candle lamp shade was on clearance for $2.75 and the yarn was $10 so there’s really about $60 in food. Bananas were on sale – they’ll be put in the dehydrator and we’ll have banana chips to snack on. The breads are all on sale and I really stocked up on bread this time. The 2 bigger loaves will be put in the fridge for use next week. Those orange stickers indicate a managers special and they’re on just about everything purchased at Kroger. (Some of these items came from WalMart). Notice a lot of the items are organic (so you CAN still stay under budget and eat healthy). I do not have to buy milk or much meat this week (the package in the front is sandwich meat) so my costs are a little less. I didn’t have very many coupons (4 total) this week so this trip is mostly just looking for the sales. The oat bran box was squished and marked down from $2.19 to $1.09. The chocolates were marked down from $2.99 to .90 and I had a .75 off coupon. Just wanted to share what a regular grocery trip entails for me.
And I purchased the oats and granola for a homemade chewy granola bar recipe I just got this week.
