Weekly Shopping - $164.97

OK - I still can't find the camera cord so I'll just add up my totals.

Tuesday morning I went to QFC for fruit and found a bunch of diary clearance stuff, too.  I spent $20.46.

Our milk also was delivered Tuesday for $11.16.

Tuesday night I went to Haggen to pick up half pint canning jars that were on sale & with coupon worked out to $6.99 for the dozen.  I also bought the 5# brick of Tillamook for $10, mangoes for $.67, and limes.   I hadn't been into Haggen for awhile, but was impressed at their big selection of organic produce.  I spent $14.65 on food.

I took the kids to a park playdate on Thursday and realized I was awfully close to Dollar Tree in Kenmore so we popped in.  I bought pepperoni, Progresso tomato base, tortillas, and whipped cream for ice cream sundaes.  I spent $13.00.

Friday I hosted a few ladies for papercrafting and wanted to make my favorite hors d'oeveres: olive crostini.  I need parsley and decided to make the trip out for it.  We went to QFC because it's closest and ended up finding sausage links on clearance for $1.99 (yay for camping!) and bought root beer for the ice cream social.  We also found some candy bars on clearance including dove dark chocolate which is my very favorite.  The worst part was spending a ridiculous $1.49 on parsley.  All of the bunches were huge and expensive.  I spent $17.56

DH picked up some $5 Friday deals at Safeway for me.  2# shredded mozzarella, 2# shredded monterey jack, and 2# blueberries.  $15.00 total.

Then I went to Fred Meyer Saturday morning before DH had to teach his teen cartoon illustration class, so it was bright and early.  I bought 6 creamers for $2.00 each, a couple bricks of cheese (because 5# wasn't enough, right?), 5 boxes of cream cheese, 3 jars of peanut butter, and 2 - 5# boxes of blueberries for $11.98 each.  I also got green onion, broccoli, strawberries, and chocolate for s'mores.  It really added up!  I spent $59.83

Albertsons was having a great sale last week so I actually snuck over there between church services Sunday since it's only about 4 blocks from our church.  I picked up 10 frozen dinners for $.50 each, ramen, pasta, canned tomatoes & olives, frozen veggies, ice cream toppings for the ice cream social, carrots, eggs, and peaches.  I spent $36.79. 

I also bought fresh eggs from my friend Sunday for $4.00.

Finally, I dashed out on Sunday to buy the actual ice cream and lemonade right before our party on Sunday.  I spent $22.52. 

Our church has been promoting block parties this summer and provided us with $50 to buy supplies & food.  So I'm reducing the grocery spending by that amount.

 In total I spent $164.97 out of pocket.
Total year to date in 2013: $3,125.19
Total average for 29 weeks: $107.77
