Grocery Geek is Back!

[4] It felt wierd to realize that I had not been in a grocery store for about 3 weeks. FishBaby will be two weeks old tomorrow and for that last prenatal week, well, I stayed in bed! That explains why we only spent $200 on groceries in August. (Thanks Mom, Dad, and Auntie Jamie!)

So yesterday I went through my coupons, gathered the baby and FishBoy11 and headed out. To be honest, I was pretty relieved that the sales weren’t that great because then I had a great excuse not to go to every store on the planet. Instead, we did Walmart and Price Chopper. I stayed under budget and was able to stock up on some things to get us through the next three weeks until we hit the Western Trail [5].

Here’s what $92.34 got me:
about 14 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast @ $1.69/#
Uncle Ben’s ready rice, free with coupon
Oscar Mayer turkey breast, marked down to $1.49/pkg

Yo+ yogurt $2.23- $1 coupon = 1.23/4pk
