This month, I’m documenting everything that has to do with groceries. If you missed Part 1: The Plan, click HERE. If you missed Part 2: Week 1, click HERE. Remember, my goal is to spend less than $400 this month, $360 to be exact.
First of all, here is my MENU PLAN for the week (click on link for recipe):
Monday: Baked Spaghetti, corn on the cob, salad
Wednesday: Breakfast – Cinnamon Roll casserole, eggs, potatoes
Thursday: Chicken Pesto Paninis & chips (pesto, shredded chicken, mozzarella)
Friday: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Dessert: Brownies with caramel pieces and chocolate chips
*I had originally thought we were going to cook our turkey, but I forgot to get it out in order to thaw so we’ll do that next week.
This is after I shopped (I forgot to take a pic of it before)…sorry it’s hard to see
My goal was $75 this week. We decided to try out the brand new store, Winco, and see what the prices were like. They had a ton on sale and we ended up just getting majority of our food there. It was a great store, BUT they only take cash, debit card, and checks. Luckily I had my check book with me. And you have to bag your own groceries. I did NOT like those two things about it, but it had great savings. If I shop there, I will not take Beckham as it would be too hard to checkout with him (Ryan was with me this time). Market Street had a great sale on 93% ground beef so I went over budget since you had to buy in bulk. I did not get the turkey listed on there because of that.
TOTAL BILL FOR WEEK 2: $102.68
