Weekly Groceries

Total for this picture is $36.36

$13.12 at Aldi for apples, oranges, olive oil, chips, and carrots.
$23.24 at Meijer for everything else.

I tried the La Tortilla Factory Tortillas that
"My little World" suggested and she's right! They're
delicious. Only 100 calories and 12 grams of fiber per one!
My daughter and I split one, so we each get 6
grams of fiber and they last twice as long!
I thought they were a bit pricey at $3.69 per 8 pack.

I also hit Kroger and spent $34.37
No picture for that one but it did include
4 gallons of milk, 4 cereal, 4 granola bars, yogurt, butter, choc. chips,
icecream, salad dressing, Reddi whip, and several other items.

Here's my totals for March and April
if you're interested!!!
For April I'm already at $70.73 (opps!)

I ended up at $171.57 for the month of March!

I'm hoping to get to my bulk food store to stock up
on baking supplies in the next week or two!

BTW-- I'm planting potatoes, peas,
and lettuce today (some yesterday)!!

I'm planting potatoes today. My tomato seedings I have growing in my kitchen are coming along nicely to.

Goodness, less then $200.00 for the month of March? Is that for food items only? How many are there in your family? Just trying to get some tips, as I am putting myself on a budget, and will try to stick to $400.00 for my family of six. (food items only, non food will be separate.)

Hi April,

No, it's for everything... But I am well stocked and have been trying to empty my freezer for 3 mo. now. It's still about 1/2 full. I have bought no meat in 3 mo. (except bacon).

I usually go and buy 50# of hamburger 2x's a year and stock up on chicken 2x's a year also.

Those items I haven't had to buy yet. They will go into my total so if I buy 50# of hamburger in April that month my total will be a $100. more. It averages out to around $350.-$400. per year on meat, which is only about $33. per month!!

I would be glad to answer any questions you may have, just let me know here or feel free to email me!!

Glad your seeds are growing great!!

Thanks Megan. :) You and my friend Katie are so good at this stuff. I'm learning a lot from you two.

I always enjoy seeing what you get each week...and the variety!
We planted our garden this week....looking forward to harvest....however, we've already spent over $200 putting it in.
Had an extra $88 for wood and hardware to make it a raised garden.
