We have a camera in the house again, so I’m trying to get back on track. As mentioned before, our budget through Lent (at least) had to go up to 40.00 per week. We are going through a huge amount of produce. Thing is, we may need to keep the budget there….we’re liking the changes! Here’s the week. I didn’t keep track of my receipts very well, so this is all without taxes. Total for the week: 37.73
Huge bundle of mustard greens and spring onions at the farmer’s market: 3.00.
Love it when these giant tubs of organic greens go on markdown! Bananas were on markdown as well, and the sorbets worked out to .12 cents each after coupon. Eggs for 1.12 a dozen. Total: 12.83
Splurged on organic apples. This photo: 6.37
First time in my life I have ever purchased chicken backs. They were super cheap and are currently in my great big stock pot on the stove turning into some yummy broth. The tuna salad was way on markdown and the sodas were only in here because they helped lower the overall cost after coupons. The truvia is here for the same reason. Spent more than usual to get Autumn some GF pizza crusts and bagels, but she will really appreciate them. Total here: 12.53
This is not part of my regular grocery shopping, but butter was way on sale this week and I’m helping with some major cookie baking soon. I went ahead and bought it while it was on sale. Two of the packages are for us and the rest are for that project. Total grocery: 3.00. Total for cookies: 15.00
