When I took a month off from blogging, I felt weird not taking pictures of my groceries. Then I got used to it. Now that I am doing it again, I feel weird again. Anyway, I did find some great deals this week! One super deal was a total accident!
For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile, my annual goal for his year was $2,600 for groceries or $50.00 per week. This included food, household items, and diapers. If you notice, the word I used above is WAS not IS. Unfortunately, I have not been able to stick to the budget of $50.00 per week. My current total is $2,454.47. That leaves me $145.53 for the next 13 weeks of 2009. That is $11.00 per week. Yeah...not going to happen. I have learned a lot along the way though, and my stockpile is still pretty big. This makes my average for the year about $63/week. This is also way better than my average from last year, which was $118/week.
Now that I got that out of the way...here is my shopping trip:
Walgreen's:1 Glad trash bags - $7.99 (-$1.50 coupon in September savings booklet) - $6.49
2 Scott Bath Tissue - $5.00 (w/in ad coupon)
4 Domino sugar - $3.20 (yes, you read that right - this is 20 pounds of sugar for $3.20. I love clearance! This was the deal I found by accident!
2 Baskin Robbins chewy candies - $.64 (clearance)
Net OOP: $16.24
Then I hit Fred Meyer: 8 Country Oven bread - $10.00 (w/in ad coupon)
2 Cheerios - $3.00 (w/in ad coupon)(2 -$1.00 off coupons) = $1.00
2 Big K Rootbeer - $1.00
1 A&W Rootbeer - $1.69
1 Coke Zero - $1.39
2 FM tuna - $1.00
1 bunch bananas - $1.14
1 Oscar Meyer lunchmeat - $1.79 (marked down from $3.99)
2 Land o' Frost lunchmeat - $5.00 (w/in ad coupon) (-2 $1.00 off coupons) = $3.00
2 Fresh Express salad - $2.50
2 Oscar Meyer bacon - $5.00 (-1.25 off 2 coupon) = $3.75
3 gallons milk - $5.97
2 Bumble Bee Tuna bowls - $4.00 (-2 $1.00 off coupons) = $2.00
1 bunch celery - $.34
Net OOP: $38.95
So my total for the week is $55.19 - not terrible! How did you do this week?
