Hey hey … it’s that time again!
Time to look at what I bought … and what I spent …
It’s not so very bad … honestly! And actually, had the boy not come along, I would have spent even LESS … but it is what it is … so while my Mandarin Orange Chicken from Trader Joe (freezer!) cooks up, I’m going to type up the receipt and hopefully get the pictures cleaned up and ready to post asap!
A very specific list. And it was short! Crazy, I know! And I stuck with it, except for ONE thing …
The biggest frugal fail ever! I bet that book is available on Kindle, Amazon, the library! Everywhere for FREE … if not today, soon!
Yup. It called my name … “over here … you deserve a brand new book to read this weekend” … “yes, you do … it’s only $15.99”
Uhm, that’s the equivalent of THREE bags of that Mandarin Orange Chicken …
Moving on … (and that book better NOT get a single splash of pool water while I’m floating!)
Costco – April 13, 2018
Total Spent – $354.89
The boy even tried to get me to go in the liquor store portion to buy more margarita mix … uh, no kid, you are of age, you go buy your own (he doesn’t have a membership card!)
24 pack of Yuengling $19.95 (bargain!)
2 twin packs of the worlds most awesomest bread $4.69 each
30 super large TP rolls $15.99
28 pk water bottles $5.99 (long story but I’m back to using these)
The Book $15.99
2 pkgs of bananas $1.99
large container of grape tomatoes $5.79
100 count Kcup Donut Shop coffee $44.99
Pretty flowery party pack of plates and napkins (100 pieces!) $12.99
6 pk Yakisoba noodles $11.59 (hoping to get Hubby on these!)

Gigantic box of those honey & oats granola bars $12.29

18 count hard boiled eggs $9.49
gourmet chocolate chip cookies $7.99 (the Boy)
2 dozen eggs $3.49
So. There you have it. I had chicken on my list but all the fresh packs had too much liquid in the bottom … Hubby is getting extremely picky on his meat and the appearance of it … I guess maybe he’s just super conciousentious due to the chemo and doesn’t want to take any chances … I get it.
I was doing a mini pantry/freezer pantry clean out and I’m fairly happy with this Costco shop … it’s all stuff I/We use (hey, that bacon and bread are #1!) and some of the other stuff we needed. Hubby will be drinking that Gatorade (as will the Boy) and the water bottles as well.
How’s your grocery shopping going along?
