2016 Groceries Week 44 - $134.16

I went to Fred Meyer late Wednesday night for milk & finally had coupons with me so I found some good deals.  Cereal was $1.50, limit 6, and I had a $1.00/2 MC. Nabisco crackers were on sale for $1.88 and I had a $1.00/2 MC, so $1.33 each. I had $1.50 off frozen chicken & bags were on sale for $5.99, Chicken nuggets on sale + coupon  = $4.49,  GF/DF pizza on sale for $5.99 and a $1.00 off coupon, Earth Balance 'butter' was $5.19 and I had a $1.00 off coupon, I also bought corn tortillas, a loaf of honey sweetened bread, bananas & organic pears.  I spent $43.43 on food.

I tried to bake on Thursday for my kids and realized I was out of eggs.  So off to the store Friday.  I bought 2 dozen eggs for $2.50 each, I found some clearance deals including a loaf of udi's cinnamon raisin bread, 5 organic baby food pouches for $0.49 to $0.79 each and a 2 pack of conventional baby food, a $1.00 bag of 3 onions, a $1.00 bag of 3 lemons, a baguette and some parsley for a recipe I made that night.  I also found 21 bags of clearance apples.  They were mostly between 28 and 32 oz but there were 2 bags well over 2 pounds so I'm estimating 40 pounds of apples.  I spent $36.31.

And I went to Fred Meyer again on Saturday because I wanted to get more of the good price on cereal as well as take advantage of the GF/DF pizza that was on sale for $5.99 instead of the usual $7.99.  I bought 6 boxes of cereal, 3 pizzas, milk, and found clearance deals on more baby food, canned corn, cooking spray, bananas, a broken baguette, and 3 packages of 6 Special Dark bars.  I spent $54.42.

Overall, not a huge week, but a good one for stocking the pantry & freezer.

Week 44 Total: $134.16
YTD 2016 Total: $6,935.22
2016 Weekly Average: $157.62
