I LOVE having a full grocery money envelope at the beginning of the month, it is always full of such promise. I get excited in seeing how far I can stretch that money each month, and how many deals I can stock up on! This month will probably not hold much in the way of deals shopping, as we are away 16 of the 31 days, and that means buying more 'vacation-like' foods. We'll see how it goes, we will probably eat from the pantry when we are home, and that will balance out the splurging we do before each trip. This week's shopping was before a trip, hence the high totals. Next week will be better. Here's what I ended up with...
- Sunday's CVS Trip: $11.27 oop, Earned $5 ECB's (not pictured 1 bottle of water with a sports top for Howard to try using, since he will NOT take any kind of sippy cup)
- Sunday's ALDI Trip: $54.57 oop (no picture, but includes 6 bottles of apple juice, 2 boxes granola bars, 2 boxes pop-tarts, 3 boxes PB wafers, 3 boxes crackers, 2 blocks of cheese, 2 different kinds of frozen individual frozen pizzas, hummus, pistachios, bagels, 2 loaves of bread, and a bag of potato chips)
- Sunday's Giant Trip: $63.21 oop (no picture, but includes 2 reduced danishes from the bakery, a package of Berger cookies, a 6 pk of Howard's Organic Yogurt, Roast beef from the deli, 2 packages of Rice Krispy Treats, a jar of Jif PB, 5 packages of Crystal light mix, a large bag of Cape Cod Reduced Fat Chips, a package of Cheese Penguin Crackers for Howard, a 35 pack of Water Bottles, 10 gallons of Spring Water - since you can't drink the water where we were camping, and 2 packages of Hot dogs)
Total Remaining for August: $170.95
