How Not To Use a Grocery List – Week 27

2013-04-13_17-07-42_495

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

What was on the list?

  • Milk
  • Frozen Chicken
  • Rotel
  • Carrots
  • Maruchan Yakisoba
  • Air Wick Air Freshener
  • Bananas
  • Yogurt

What did I come home with?

  • Yogurt
  • Maruchan Yakisoba
  • Air Wick Air Freshener
  • Rotel
  • Bananas
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Chicken

What was thrown out this week:

  • 3 bags of frozen unknown chicken things I found in the freezer… no idea what they were
  • 1 leftover dinner I froze. It smelled bad when it thawed

How much did I save this week?

$42.21… which is 48.06%… not too bad… Why the Maruchan Yakisoba? With the sale they were on and the coupons I had I paid $0.18 for 2 packages that went to the food bank. The Air Wick was a money maker for me this week and buy buying the 2 that were on sale and using my coupon I made a little over $0.40. I did go to 2 stores: Harris Teeter and BJ’s.

What did you throw out this week?
