I’m actually using mostly what we already had on hand meat-wise, so most of the grocery shopping (in 2 trips this week) ended up being to stockpile. Mike said I had $50 for groceries this week, including the $5+ he spent the other day for bread and milk. I stayed under that and actually got a lot of extra! Yeah me!

One of our local stores had a 3-day sale Fri-Sun, so Sunday I went a did a little shopping…

5lb potatoes – $1
10 boxes mac-n-cheese – $2
3 cans Pillsbury Grands biscuits – $1.14 (on sale 88¢, and I had 3 coupons for 50¢ off)
1 box of frosted flakes $1.19
4 cans of whole kernel corn – $1
4 cans of sweet peas – $1
2 boxes of Pillsbury brownie mix – $2.25 (on sale 2/$3 and I had a 75¢ coupon)
2 loaves of bread – $1
4 pkgs of cornbread – $1
pkg of boneless pork chops (about 8) – $4
pkg of steak (about 2lb??) – $4

Total: $19.58

Another local store is re-opening after a fire and has some sweet deals for this week that I price-matched at Walmart. I know, it would be nicer to go direct and help out the little guy and all that, but that would be a 15min trip each way for just a handful of things… I’d lose $$ by the time I took out for gas.

Here’s Walmart-

5 bell peppers – $1 (price-match)
2 heads of lettuce – 96¢ (price match)
1.65 lb tomatoes – $1.65 (and the only way I know how many pounds is because it was a dollar a pound and it rang up 1.65! LOL)
3lb gala apples (my FAVE!) – $3
3lb bananas – $1.45
2 lb Owen sausage – $3.76 (price match and 35¢ off coupons)
2 gal milk – $5
small bag of laundry soap (just enough to get me through to Fri) – $1.68
2 liter Coca-Cola – $1.48
2 liter Dr Pepper – 88¢ (price match)

Total $20.49
