I made it! I managed to stay out of the grocery stores for a WHOLE week. Woohoo!
Yeah. It’s not a big deal but the fact that I opted to do a No Spend Week without any prior thought is sort of a huge deal … meaning I didn’t go out and “prepare” for the week ahead!
And we survived!
Here’s how I broke that spending fast!
Publix – May 26th, 2017
Total Spent – $70.95
sliced pepper jack cheese $3.50
sliced sharp cheddar cheese $3.50
sliced white cheddar cheese $3.50
2 20 bags of ice $4.19 each
12 pk Corona Light $13.99
8 pk LaCroix Blueberry/Cucumber $4.39
12 pk LaCroix Passionfruit $4.00
2 containers strawberries $2.00 each
bag of red grapes $4.58
1/4 watermelon $3.17 (this, after I shared the Deconstructing a Watermelon … long story!)
container fresh salsa $2.50
loaf of italian bread $2.99
loaf of potato bread $3.49
Aldi – May 26th, 2017
Total Spent – $4x.xx (can’t find my receipt so need to go dig around my shopping bags) I had my sister in law in tow with me so it was not a “focused” shopping trip (update, no luck at all in finding that receipt!)
2 heads of iceberg lettuce
2 heads of living lettuce
large ass bottle of wine (sister in law grabbed)
3 dozen eggs 99 cents each
2 cartons heavy whipping cream $1.89 each
bag of red onions
2 blocks cheddar cheese
2 blocks swiss cheese
bottle of onion powder
bag of cilantro
3 seedless cucumbers
2 pkgs of green beans, because, you know, my life is not complete without these!
And a few other things …
Publix – May 27th, 2017
Total Spent – $127.40. Again, sister in law was with me …
So guess what’s coming up THIS week? Another NO SPEND WEEK which means I’m staying out of the grocery store until at least Monday, June 5th! We have PLENTY of food at this moment to last us until then and beyond!
