Today, I picked up the groceries I ordered, yesterday.
4 bananas, 0.91lb. @ $.65/lb. (we are back to $.65/lb; last time it had gone up to $.69/lb.) = $1.32
2 pears, 0.95lb. @ $1.99/lb. = $1.89
4 x 8 oz. packets Cheetos @$1.99 if you buy 4 ($4.99 @ if less than 4) = $7.96
(to be shared with daughter)
.57 lb. shrimp @ $6.99/lb. with digital coupon = $4.00
.95 lb. asparagus @ $1.49/lb. with digital coupon = $1.42
(asparagus with the coupon was cheaper than green beans which were only available pre-trimmed in a 2 lb. bag for $5.99 or almost $3.00/lb!)
3 lb. bag yellow onions = $2.99
1 box 32 oz. pancake/waffle mix = $3.19 (gone up $0.20 since I last bought)
1 loaf 20 oz. sandwich bread = $1.50 (yay! gone down $0.19 since I last bought!)
12 cup noodles soup, $.66@ = $7.99
1 bag, 20 oz. pork and vegetable dumplings/gyoza = $5.99
2 x 12 oz. packages chocolate chips @ $2.49 (with digital coupon) = $4.98
Total came to $43.23
November's monthly grocery budget = $100.00
Balance left in the budget = $100 - $2.58 (for the two brownie mixes from the drug store) - $43.23 = $54.19
In addition, I have money leftover from the September/October budgets being carried over because I only did one grocery pick up in October, at the beginning of the month! It's a good problem to have, isn't it?
I will put in another grocery order in two weeks' time as I need to get a few things before my daughter visits (half and half for her coffee, for one thing) plus some items for our Thanksgiving dinner.
Jennifer wasn't there, today, so I couldn't give her the brownies I baked. I will try to catch her on my next trip.
Brunch was scrambled egg and toast. I made shrimp curry and had it with rice and peach chutney for dinner, tonight.
Have you done any grocery shopping in November, yet?
