2015 Groceries Week 16 - $24.26

What's this?  $24.26 you say?  Yes!!!

We were visiting family all week in California and I planned ahead with meals.  I brought all of our dinners frozen, packed cereal and applesauce for breakfasts, and even brought a couple of lunch things for Disneyland packed lunches.  The only money we spent in Disneyland was at Starbucks one day which I don't count as groceries.

My one shopping trip was for a few more lunch items.  I went to the Von's near my Mom-in-law's which is basically Safeway.  I bought lettuce for $1.99, a loaf of bread for $2.49, 1# lunchmeat turkey for $5 and ham for $5, sour cream for $2.79, cream cheese for $1.50 (to make egg salad with Easter eggs we brought along), hummus for $2.99, and an 8-pack for juice boxes for $2.50.

This worked out really well.  I packed sandwiches for lunch two days at Disneyland and pulled pork (that I brought along from home) for the other two lunches.  We had salad with dinner a couple of nights and we used the sour cream for dinner topping with the chili and taco soup I had packed.

Long story short: Good planning saved us major bucks on vacation!  Wahoo!

Week 16 Total: $24.26
Year-to-Date 2015: $1277.44
Weekly Average: $79.84
