|February 13 Groceries|
I went grocery shopping on Monday, February 13 and bought:
1 box pancake mix = $1.99
1 loaf bread = $1.00
16 oz. jar unsalted roasted peanuts = $2.99
2 cans condensed milk, @$1.69 = $3.38
1 can corned beef = $5.99
1 lb. butter @ $3.99 - $.40 coupon = $3.59
Bananas @ $.69/lb = $.79
1 cucumber = $.50
1 container (6 oz.) blackberries = $.99
1 package chicken split breasts with ribs and skin, @$.77/lb. = $3.47
Total = $24.69
I have come to the end of the box of pancake mix I have in the cabinet and I opened the last can of corned beef I had, last week.
I found it interesting that the same, store brand, unsalted roasted peanuts cost $2.99 for a 12-oz can, but the 16 oz. jar was also priced at $2.99! No explanation for the price difference. All the different kinds of store brand peanuts (salted, honey roasted, etc.) were priced the same - $2.99 for the 12-oz cans and $2.99 for the 16 oz. jar! Maybe people assume that the can will be cheaper? Personally, I'd rather have more peanuts for the same price and a reusable jar, as well!
Yes, I finally caved in and bought the butter at $3.59/lb with the coupon, as I was down to half of the last stick of butter. It's $3.99 otherwise and $4.49 without the store's club card!
The two oranges in the picture above weren't bought; I picked them from my tree. I just included them in the picture because I picked them on my way from the garage to the house and I dropped them in one of the bags with the rest of the groceries!
|February 13 Receipt|
I spent a total of $36.64 at the grocery store, but $11.95 of it was for cat food, which is not included in my grocery budget. The groceries came to $24.69.
February grocery budget = $75 + $20.53 carried over from January = $95.53
Spent to date = $10.11 + $24.69 = $34.80
Balance remaining = $60.73
The new grocery ads came in today's mail and I took a quick look. No exceptional sales, but that's OK. All I'll need next week are more fruits and vegetables and maybe some fish for a change. Also, maybe some frozen puff pastry to make sausage rolls with the sausage I bought on sale, last week.
How is your February grocery budget coming along?
