Grocery Geek Presents: Fruit Loot

Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 20, 2009 @ 12:54 pm In Budget Living,Grocery Geek | 7 Comments


This week I only went to one store. But, I took ALL SIX KIDS. So, I think I get extra points for that. Don’t you?

The kids did great. It helped that I made my expectations of their behavior very clear as well as the consequences. Losing your half hour of computer time can be a major bummer in the summer. I was really proud of them; everyone was so helpful as we managed two carts through our local market. Here’s what we nabbed:

6 loaves of clearanced bread $0.99 each
a cherry pie $1.99
butter $2/# (not the best deal around, but I didn’t want to make a trip to Costco just for butter)
eggs $1.39/dozen
yogurt $2
cheddar $1.99/#
organic lemonade after sale and coupon $0.75
cherry tomatoes $1.50
apples $0.88/#
cilantro $0.33
cukes $0.69 each
avocados $0.99
nectarines and peaches $0.49/#
pineapple $1.50 each
red bell peppers $0.77 each
romas $0.88/#
watermelon $1.50 each!
serrano peppers $0.19 for 4 chiles
strawberries $1.25/#
onions $0.77/#
bananas $0.69/#

Total for pictured: $54.22
