Shopping Round Up 10-26-2009

Shopping went well this week.  Kroger had some sales that coincided with a few coupons I had.  I like it when that happens.  Instead of taking pictures according to where the items are purchased, I’m now going to group them by what will be used to make this weeks menu and what is going into the pantry for future meals. I had an email asking how to build up your pantry and thought this would help a little.

Items to complete this weeks menu.

10-26 a

Bread 1.29-.25 doubled coupon = .79
Hot Dog Buns .88
2 pk. Italian Bread .79 clearance table
English Toasting Bread .99 clearance table
Chips 1.75

10-26b

2.67 lbs Bananas 1.04
4 pk Yogurt 1.83 – .50 coupon = 1.33
4 pk Yogurt 2.39 – 1.00 coupon = 1.39
2 lb. Mushrooms 4.00
Shalots 1.34 (not pictured)
3.83 lbs Pears 3.79 (not pictured)

Items for the pantry

10-26c

 3 lb Onions 1.44
Chili Powder 5.35
Frozen Peas 1.08 – .35 coupon = .73
4-1 lb. Bologna 4.00 – 2 @ 1.00 coupons =2.00
3 Manwich 3.00 – .65 coupon = 2.35
3 Diced Tomatoes 1.95 – 1.00 coupon = .95
2 Cake Mixes 2.00 – .55 coupon = 1.45
5 lbs. Ground Round 9.74

Grand Total $ 42.67

October Monthly Round Up
Wk #1 $49.90
Wk #2 $ 40.14
Wk#3 $42.90
Wk #4 $42.67
Total $175.61  Average of $43.90 per week.

October looks good.  I came in under my $50 goal.  I’m sure November will be much harder with Thanksgiving.  The good thing is I have a freezer full of meat, I probably can get through the month without having to buy much, meat wise.

How is everyone else going to fit Thanksgiving into their budget?

  1. I’ve been trying to stay within $50 a week. Since I didn’t have a pantry setup before our firings it’s been difficult.
    Congratulations! You definitely spent well!
