|November 12 Groceries|
I went grocery shopping, late Sunday morning. I went to two stores. I went to Store 1 because they had advertised 4 lb. bags of sugar for $1.49. But, when I went to the store, they were all out of it! However, I was able to get a rain check and I was told they'll have the sugar in on Tuesday. I bought two packets of hot cocoa (6 pouches in each box) for $.99/box. One for the house and one to take to the office to keep at my desk for those days when I want a warm drink. I spent $1.98 at Store 1.

Then, on my way to put gas to the car ($3.05/gallon; I put $40 worth of gas), I stopped at the grocery store across the street from the gas station and bought bread ($.59), bananas ($.49/lb = $.88), lettuce ($.99), a cucumber ($.50), and 2 mangoes ($.99@; $1.98). I spent $4.94 at Store 2.

I had also spent $4.25 at the farmers' market on Thursday on a baguette and an almond croissant; I am adding that to Week 2's grocery spending.
November grocery budget: $75 + $5.66 (carried over from October) = $80.66
November grocery spending to date: $18.75 + $4.25 + $6.92 = $29.92
Amount left in November grocery budget = $80.66 - $29.92 = $50.74
Lunch, today, was leftovers from yesterday's lunch. For dinner, I thawed and warmed up a packet of meat balls curry and the last of the smoked sausage sauted with spring onions, cooked some dhal curry (lentils), and made a cucumber salad. We had that with rice, mango chutney, and pappadum (lentil wafers). Mangoes for dessert and I had a banana, as well.
The fridge is full of leftovers, once again! I probably won't have to cook all week, unless I want to! I'll be sending some food home with my daughter, too.
Did you go grocery shopping this week? How are you coming along with your budget, so far, this month?
