I made a decision I am going to shop every other week. I decided this because I only have one day a week off from work and I would rather not be grocery shopping. Gasp, just because I save money grocery shopping doesn’t mean I want to do it. Here is the list I used!
I spent $181.25 and Saved $103.60
I bought 129 items for an average cost of $1.40 each
Some of the expensive items 2lbs of shrimp $10, Pull ups after coupons $7.00, Formula two cans $9.58 each with coupons, Chicken $6.00, Sausage for the lasagna $4
I am tacky enough to post my freezer prior to shopping just so you know we do have food and we are not going to live off of cans. This is before everything I bought was added. The can stock up is because the baby is moving into food he can pick up and veggies at $.50 a can or less it is a super deal. We also have an apple juice issue here so I bought 5 of them. When they are $1.49 a bottle I stock up and then there was the goldfish addiction that my children have so I bought 6 of those at $1.00 each. Finally, I had to buy my husband a treat $10 worth of Sobe because it is better than soda.
Here is my menu for the next two weeks.. we got out to eat once a week or we pick up take out usually pizza or chinese:
Burgers and Chili Dogs
Bake Potato Bar
Left over Lo Mein will use the rest of the shrimp and left over roasted chicken
Steak and Potatoes
Shrimp and alfredo Sauce
Lemon Fish and baked potatoes
