2016 Groceries Week 3 - $19.13

The Pantry Challenge is going well so far.  I have to admit it was a huge struggle to walk away from sausage on clearance for $1.29/lb that I saw on Monday at Fred Meyer.  As a result, in subsequent shopping trips I just avoided the clearance areas altogether.  I had to remind myself that this is an intentional season of challenge and sausage will be on sale again.

My first stop was Fred Meyer on Monday for brown rice cakes as they are a nice crunchy snack and good for the detox.  I found two tubs of turkey lunchmeat which are also detox friendly.  I spent $8.87.

Tuesday I realized I needed onions for a couple of recipes in the menu plan so I zipped into a little grocery store in Duvall when we were 15 minutes early for an appointment.  This 5# bag of onion was only $2.19!

Thursday night I stopped quickly at QFC for a eggs and milk and was delighted to find organic milk on clearance for $2.89/gallon so I was able to buy 2 gallons and stay under the $20 for the week.  Hooray!  I spent $8.07 on food that night.

The three shopping trips totaled $19.13.
My first 3 weeks of 2016 totaled $46.82 for a weekly average of $15.61.
