I went grocery shopping on my way home from work, today, and bought:
1 gallon milk = $2.59
5 lb. bag flour = $1.99
1 loaf bread = $1.29
1 doz. eggs = $3.89 (!)
1 (32 oz.) flavored coffee creamer = $2.50
1 ice cream = $2.50
1+ lb. grapes @ $.89/lb = $1.01
Total = $15.77
The price of eggs has skyrocketed! I was very reluctant to pay that much for a dozen large eggs, but, I was down to one last egg, so I decided to buy some, no matter the price.
I also bought some cat food, but that's not included in my grocery totals.
My September grocery budget is $75.
What's left in the budget = $75 - $15.77 = $59.23
I had taken out some cooked salmon from the freezer to have for my dinner, tonight, but I didn't feel like having it. Instead, I took out a hamburger patty from the freezer, thawed it in the microwave and pan-fried it. I made some fries to go with it and some corn. And had that for dinner. I guess I'll have the salmon for my lunch, tomorrow, with rice, green peas, and tomato chutney.
In other news, I called and made an appointment to see my doctor, next Tuesday, to go over the biopsy results; hopefully, the doctor's office will have received the results by then! The appointment desk wanted to make the appointment for next Thursday, but I said that was too long to wait to find out the results.
How was your day? Have you gone grocery shopping yet in September? How much are you paying for a dozen large eggs in your area?
