2015 Groceries Week 6 - $39.40

This was the first week of the Pantry Challenge - 2015 Edition.  I really tried to stay under the $35, but I didn't quite make it.

I went to Fred Meyer on Monday to pick up the eggs for $1.25/dozen and a little produce.  I ran across this cereal in the markdown bin and technically, shouldn't have purchased it because it's the pantry challenge.  However, I could not ignore organic, gluten-free cereal for just $1.19/box.  I went ahead and bought all 8 boxes that were in the bin, vowing to forgo other shopping trips so I could stick to the $35 by the end of the week.  I spent $20.74.

I was able to resist more shopping until Saturday when I was completely out of hummus. The detox is nearly over, but I want to keep up with some new, healthy habits and hummus has been essential.  I had photos to pick up at Costco so I picked up hummus while I was there for $4.99.

Our milk was delivered and the price has gone up a bit.  It was $13.47.

Total Spending Week 6 - $39.20
Year-to-date 2015 Spending - $425.04
2015 Weekly average - $70.84
