I had a request from one of my readers that I post where I bought my groceries, what I bought and how much I paid for each item, so here goes!
1 watermelon that was on sale for $4 (I wouldn't normally buy out of season, but we love watermelon so much!)
1 bunch of bananas that were on sale for $.33 a pound!
Two 4 packs of Yo-Plus yogurt that were on sale for $1.25 each. Luckily, I had two $1 off coupons, so I actually got them for $.25 each!
2 boxes of twelve "Nature Valley" granola bars: $3.98 (However, I had $1.80 worth of coupons, so these ended up costing me $2.20 total)
2 boxes of "Rozini Smart Taste" macaroni noodles: $1.98 (However, I had 2 $1 coupons, so these ended up being free!)
2 boxes of "Uncle Ben's white and wild rice": $3.04 (I had $1.50 worth of coupons, so these only cost me $1.54 total!)
Welches black cherry and grape juice: $2.59 ($1 off coupon, so $1.59!)
Welches white grape and peach juice: $2.59 ($1 off coupon, so $1.59!)
2 boxes of Triscuit crackers: $3.58 (I had $1.50 worth of coupons, so this was only $2.08!)
Washing soda: $2.05 (sadly, no coupon)
6 Yoplait yogurts: $3.00 (I had a $.50 off coupon, so $2.50!)
Buttermilk: $1.33 (Sadly, no coupon!)
2 boxes of frozen Green Giant sugar snap peas: $1.98 ($.50 off coupon, so $1.48!)
2 pounds of lean ground turkey: $4.72 ($2.25 worth of coupons, so $2.47!)
Shredded lettuce: $1.25 (Sadly, no coupon)
5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes: $2.99 (Sadly, no coupon!)
Well, my grand total grocery spending for the week is: $32! That leaves $8 more for me to save for Williamsburg, so I'm pretty psyched! I hope this post was informative and not boring.:P Now for my menu plan!
Mashed potatoes (The parsnips were still too expensive!:()
Chicken salad sandwiches
Sugar snap peas
Ground turkey and rice skillet meal
Asian stir fry
Anything that needs eating up before our trip!
You may notice I've planned to eat a lot of leftovers. This is because we leave for our vacation next week!
