March 2021 Grocery Spending

March 9th, 2021 at 04:46 pm

Yesterday I went to the grocery store and spent a total of $34.17 here is what I bought:

$1.00     1 can of baked beans

$4.39     2 cans of premium canned chicken breast (for chicken salad for lunches)

$1.50     1 package of peeled organic carrots

$.58       1 crown of broccoli (I still have some left from last week)

$3.46     2.05 lbs of red delicious apples

$8.99     prepared Stouffer's Meatloaf (2 lbs, six individual slices with gravy)

$4.49    1 box of chocolate popsicles (still have some left from last week but decided not to run out!)

$1.29    1 dozen large eggs

$4.38    2 small tubs of butter/spread (this will last a while)

$2.50    1 gallon of unsweetened iced tea (this will last a while)

$1.59    1 quart of whole milk

The meatloaf is for the bulk of my dinners this week. I'll have one slice with veggies for 6 meals. I was going to buy ground meat and make my own, but ground meat was not on sale this week so this option was actually less expensive, and I have had it before and really like it. And it's easy, just heat and eat. I really don't mind eating the same thing for several meals.

This grocery store, Weis, is right down the street and very convenient. I find thier prices are generally stable and they have decent sales. I could make a special trip to the Lidl's where eggs and milk are a bit less expensive, but it just isn't worth it to me to drive 3 miles away to save about $1.00. I'm still trying to limit how many stores I go into until I can get vaccinated. 

So far for the month of March I have spent a total of $101.08. My goal for the month is to stay at or under $200. I only plan to shop once a week on Mondays.

    Decided not to run out -- I like that! I haven't had chocolate popsicles for a long time -- now you've got me hungry for them!
