Weekly Shopping Including Bulk Buys! $155.94

This week I had to take all my photos with my phone so sorry for the poor quality! 
I was out of town on a camping trip and without cell service or internet access so this grocery week is for July 22 to July 28, Week 30 of 2013. 

I spent $21.76 at Target on clearance stuff and bananas.
Coffee was $3.88 each on clearance
Stovetop was $1.08 each on clearance (I use this for a quick, easy casserole recipe)
Bean Mix was $1.24
Numi Tea was $2.98 (I shouldn't have bought this one, but was kinda taken up in the clearance deals I think)
Organic breakfast bars were $1.98 (for camping)
Candy was $1.98 each (for road trip)
Bananas were $1.68

I didn't intend to go to Champion Foods this week, but I met up with a friend in Bellevue and she had just been there.  She told me they had a lot of chips so I had to head over there and pick up camping snacks.  I spent $24.00
Tortilla Chips - 3 at $1.00 each
Salt & Vinegar Kettle Chips - 3 for $1.00
Salsa Kettle Chips - 3 for $1.00
Snikiddy "Fries" - 3 for $1.00
Open Nature Veggie chips - 3 for $1.00
Pirate Booty (huge bag) - $2.50
Fruit Leather - 8 at $.25 each
Near East Couscous - 2 at $1.00 each
Dove sugar free Raspberry Dark Chocolate - 2 at $1.25 each
Graham Crackers - $2.00
Cereal - $2.50 (accidental purchase a kid tossed in and unloaded at register)
White Pepper - 2 at $1.00 each
Bean Mix - $1.50

I stopped at the Dollar Store and Grocery Outlet when I had a sitter and my haircut was faster than I anticipated.  Between the two I spent $22.02

Potatoes - $2.99
Watermelon - $3.99 (for potluck)
Onions - $1.69
Carrots - $1.49
Flour - $1.89
Organic Strawberries - $0.99 each
Bagels - $0.99
Mac'n'Cheese - $0.50 each
Ranch Dressing - $1.00 each
Vanilla Extract - $1.00 each

The bulk food this week was $17 for the 25# of apricots and $60 for the 30# of blueberries.

Our milk delivery was $11.16

In total this week I spent: $155.94
My total year to date is: $3,281.13
My weekly average in 2013 is: $109.37 

I'd like to see my average decline instead of increase, but in this bulk buying produce season I'm just going to be happy if it doesn't jump greatly from week to week.  Maybe in October it will start to decline after the last of the canning.
