Weekly Shopping – September 8th to September 15th

I was really hoping to keep the weekly trip to a minimum again … would be real nice to do TWO WEEKS in a row that way, don’t you think?

Nah…not going to happen just yet …

Hit Costco on Wednesday night after work….got lots of stuff which you can check out over here for $187.90.  You can check out the trip here.

I am real heavy on produce right now … and I’ve got some great ideas for food this week … so come back Monday and check out the menu plan!

* these items are for my dad … I wouldn’t normally include his groceries with mine but since I paid for it all this week, I am.

Roughly $310 spent this week … I had allocated myself $300. Remember, I didn’t shop once the previous week so I had 2 weeks worth of $ to spend. I went a little over so I will try to keep it at $120 next week … I think I can do it, EXCEPT Sonny Boy may be coming in for the weekend which means I have that mommy guilt to load him up with food to take home!

I am trying to stick to a budget of $150 a week on groceries. Yes, I know, rugs and knives do not count as food, however, if it’s bought on the same receipt, it’s tossed in as part of the grocery outlay.
