I’ve been enjoying having my mom here since Tuesday. I’ve dragged her along on my shopping expeditions. She was so wowed to see that I “saved” $100 at Ralphs. I only had three coupons, but everything was on sale, so the original total was inflated. That run was to stock up on Gatorade ($.59 ea) and Johnsonville sausages ($1.99/pkg).
This run was at my local health food store that has exceptional prices on produce, meat, and dairy.
chicken breast $1.99
pineapples $1.50 each
clearance bread items $0.99
Last month I went a little over budget ($665 instead of $600), so I need to make up for that this month. Ralphs cost $40 and the above picture was $75, bringing my total to $115 for the week, about $45 under budget. Works for me!
I am also planning to play in the All You Grocecery Challenge. Should be interesting to see how we do.
