Weekly Grocery Shopping

Over the weekend we headed into the store to get a gallon of milk and a few cans of tomato sauce and tomato paste to make chili. Total spent there was $11.03.

My husband took the day off on Tuesday so Monday night he headed into the grocery store to pick up a few snacks. It seriously was all junk food. Tuesday was declared junk food day and we won't be doing that again for a long while. I didn't get a picture which I would have been embarrassed to post anyway! Let's just say there was a few frozen pizzas, some 2 liters of pop, strawberry wafers and few other random snack items. Total spent was $17.34. Ouch. We really could have done without that shopping trip.Here was my weekly grocery shopping trip yesterday. I mostly picked up fruit and stocked up on margarine at it's rock bottom price of $.67. I still do some of my baking with margarine. Most of the items I bought didn't have coupons. My total spent was $41.92. Coupon savings was $.50.

Not a great week for savings. I didn't really stock up on anything either since the sales have been slow. My total for the week is $70.29, making my monthly total $133.09. My total coupon savings for the month is $17.50.

  1. Nice work still! It's tough to save on healthy food, I know because I've tried too! But hey, sometimes we all have those junk food days, don't be embarrassed ;)
