Grocery Shopping - June Week 2

June Week 2 Groceries

I stopped by the grocery store, after work, today and bought a few things to take advantage of a sale.  Blueberries and raspberries were on sale for $1.28/4.4-6 oz. packs; I bought them mostly for my daughter who will be visiting this weekend.

The juice was on sale for $.88 each, provided one bought 5.  I bought 4 bottles of apple juice and one cranberry-raspberry, which is daughter's favorite.  I now have enough juice for the rest of this year!

I also bought a loaf of sandwich bread ($1.29) and 2 lb. bananas (@ $.69/lb.= $1.38).


I spent a total of $11.01.

I had $17.00 left in my June grocery budget, so now, I have $5.99 left!  Oh, dear!  Somebody had better stay out of the grocery stores for the rest of the month!

Lunch, today, was rice, salmon, green beans, and tomato chutney, with grapes for dessert.  Dinner was a scrambled egg (1 egg), bacon, and potato.

Today, I am grateful for:

1. Grocery bargains
2. Being able to stock up when bargains are available
3. A well-stocked pantry
4. My job and all the benefits it provides me (a steady income, health insurance, etc.)
5. My daughter

How are you coming along with your grocery budget, so far, this month?  Have you, like me, spent most of the budget in the first half of the month?


  1. That's a great deal on the juice, Bless. I don't find deals like that in our area, unfortunately. Have a wonderful time visiting with your daughter this weekend!

    1. Carolyn, it was a very good deal. The apple juice is 100% juice and usually sells for $3.99. Last week, it was "on sale" for $2.99, and I had a $1 off coupon, so got a bottle for $1.99 which is my "cut off" price for juice (I won't buy it if it is any higher). Occasionally, it goes on sale for $1 and I stock up. So, when I saw it advertised for $.88/buy 5; I decided to go ahead and stock up.

  2. Wow...what great bargains... [Love when I find them].. The berries and the juice both were great finds.. I am going to the farmers market this week.. to buy a gallon of blue berries for the freezer.. They are $15 a gallon..

    1. Judy, sounds like that is a very good price for a gallon of blueberries. What will you make with them?
