|This Week's Groceries|
I went grocery shopping today and spent $60.85!
Prior to today's grocery shopping, I had gone grocery shopping on May 11, and spent $8.77 and bought some applesauce and a bottle of soda on May 17, and spent $2.09.
Today, I bought:
3 salmon steaks @ $3.99/lb = $7.84
Lean ground beef (15% fat) @ $3.69/lb = $4.00
10 lb. bag potatoes = $1.69
2 packages "Armenian Pizza" @ $5.29 = $10.58
Green beans @ $1.49/lb = $1.39
2 cans (28 oz) garbanzo beans @ $.99 = $1.98
Bananas @ $.59/lb = $.90
Apricot @ $.79/lb = $.81
Bing Cherries @ $1.69/lb = $7.01
Rainier Cherries @ $1.99/lb = $4.14
2x 6 oz. packs blackberries @ $.99 = $1.98
2x 4 oz. packs turkey cold cuts @ $.69 = $1.38
5 packs frozen puff pastry squares @ $.99 = $9.95
1 pack Raw whole cashews = $3.74
1 pack Raw whole cashews = $3.45
Total = $60.85
Later, daughter and I went to another store and bought 2 containers of ice cream (pistachio and butter pecan), @ 2/$4.99 (buy one get one free) = $4.99
Total spent on groceries so far in May = $8.77 + $2.09 + $60.85 + $4.99 = $76.70
I am very slightly over my budget of $75, but, I am OK with that, as some of what I bought today (the salmon, the cherries, the blackberries, the Armenian pizza, the cashews, the pistachio ice cream) are daughter's favorites. She'll be taking some of the items with her when she goes back to Berkeley on Monday. Some of the other items, like the frozen puff pastry, potatoes, garbanzo beans, and the ice cream, will last well into June and even July.
I might have to buy another gallon of milk before the end of the month, but that will be OK, too.
How are you coming along with your grocery shopping this month?
