P1010689

Grocery shopping? I’m game! Here’s how I did this week:

What was on the list? (Please keep in mind we are trying to use up perishables before the move)

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Onions
  • Tortilla Shells
  • Quiona Pasta
  • Re-fried Beans
  • Eggs
  • Chips
  • Beer/wine
  • Potatoes

What did I come home with?

  • Chips
  • Re-fried Beans
  • Quinoa Pasta
  • 2 Packages Tikka Masala Sauce (On sale for 25% off… brand usually doesn’t go on sale)
  • 2 Packages Korma Sauce (On clearance for 50% off… brand usually doesn’t go on sale)
  • Beer & Cider
  • Pork Chops
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Milk
  • Tortilla Shells (Corn and Wheat)

What was thrown out this week?

  • Half a pie that was hiding in the back of my fridge since Christmas…

Total Savings This Week: $16.05. We went $8 over budget this week on groceries, but that cost all came from the 4 packages of sauce we bought, but we could not pass up that kind of a sale).

What did you throw out this week?
