I did a grocery pick up, today. I mostly wanted some fresh produce, but, chicken was on sale for $.99/lb. and I decided to stock up on chicken, condensed milk (at regular price), sugar (jam and chutney making season is just around the corner!) and pasta. Celie had mentioned this pasta when I posted a photo of the cookies I had bought when I went to get my second booster shot (I was intrigued by the brand name). The store website has them advertised for $.25 each, but, I was charged $.33 (which is the price on the website for other types of their pasta), but I am not going to complain about it. $.33 for a 7 oz. packet comes to $.75/lb. In comparison, the store brand costs $1.33/lb.
2 trays Chicken drumsticks, 6.88 lb. @ $.99/lb. = $6.81
3 Bananas, 1+ lb. @ $.65/lb. = $0.79
2 Mangoes @1.00 = $2.00
5 Apples, 1.88 lbs. @ $1.49/lb. = $2.80
1 Lettuce = $1.49
2 lb. bag carrots = $1.99
1 Frozen Green peas, 12 oz. bag = $1.25
1 Whipped topping, store brand, 8 oz. container = $1.00
6 Condensed milk, store brand, 14 oz. cans, @ $1.79 = $10.74
1 loaf Bread, 20 oz. = $1.69
8 Spaghetti, 7 oz. packages, @ $.33 = $2.67
2 x 10 lb. bags Sugar, @ $5.39/bag = $10.78
Total (with coupons and sales) = $44.01
May grocery budget = $100
Spent to date = $44.01
Balance = $55.99
I repackaged the chicken drumsticks after I got home and froze the majority of them, keeping four drumsticks in the fridge to cook this weekend.
Have you gone grocery shopping yet, in May?
