Grocery Shopping Week - Shameful Junk Food Purchases - $143.20

This week I tragically misplaced my Fred Meyer Rewards card.  I don't have a telephone number associated with it so I couldn't get any of the $0.91 digital deals OR rack up rewards points.  It was very frustrating and even stole some of my shopping joy.  Boo!  Of course then I had some thinking to do on why a silly grocery card/saving a few cents was so important to me . . . hm. 

This was the trip to Fred Meyer when I discovered my card was missing.  I spent $19.40.
Cheese - $3.99 on sale
Coffeemate - $2.50 each on sale ($1.25/3) = $2.08 each
Granola Bars - $0.99 on clearance

This was another trip to Fred Meyer after I registered a phone number to my card online, hoping to still be able to use my account.  Nope.  I spent $17.49.

I had a bit of a rough day on Friday and made the very poor choice of going out for Doritos because I wanted them and after the day I had I just wasn't going to care about the calories.  I am a bit embarrassed to post this photo . . . I spent $26.65 and most of it is junk food!

And finally, I stopped at the Yakima Fruit Stand between Bothell & Kenmore on my way home from the Grocery Outlet because I saw that pears were only $0.69/lb.  And even better a box of 28# was $16.99 making the pears only $!  Why did I buy 84 pounds?  For canning of course.  Why did I buy them when I already have about 30# of apples and 20# of plums waiting to be canned?  I don't know.  I wasn't thinking apparently.  Ugh.
$50.97 in pears
Our milk delivery was $11.16 and I didn't get eggs.
