I apologize for not posting my shopping trips lately! They have been less than stellar, as grocery shopping has not been my primary focus this last month. I think I’m on the “upswing” and will soon be back to my bargain shopping ways. Don’t worry, I have been using coupons and buying mostly “on sale” items…but I haven’t been maintaining my stockpile too well 🙁
Last week after DS’ allergy appointment, I found myself driving by Whole Foods. It’s not a store I normally shop in, but because we were “in the area,” I couldn’t help but stop in! I only spent $12 on a few grains and some pine nuts. With all the basil I’ve got growing, I figured a pesto dish would be worth a try. I could hardly contain myself in there, but also didn’t want to spend a fortune!
I also stopped in last week for my “monthly” trip to Trader Joe’s. I buy rice milk, agave syrup and sweet potato chips there. I had been getting rice pasta there…if you are GF, I highly their rice pasta…good and less than $2/lb.! I spent $27.88 for the month.
I also made my weekly run to Walmart and spent $64.31. I did use coupons for the Kashi cereal and cereal bars, the Rice Krispies, soap, cottage cheese. I also took advantage of the $6 off pork coupon and got that package of pork chops for $.76 with buying the pickles and charcoal (not pictured.) The pork chops can be used for 2 meals…planning on brining and grilling next week!
Total for last week = $104.19 (OY!)
Not the greatest week, but I know this BUSY season that will pass soon!
NOTE: Gallon of milk at my Walmart is $1.79 this week! Be sure to check your store for this great price!!! And Deal Seeking Mom has got the best coupon matchups for Walmart here!
