Monday I went to Fred Meyer late at night. We needed milk, cheese, and I wanted some hamburger patties to use up leftover hamburger buns. Cereal was on sale 3/$5 for I picked up 3 boxes that didn't ring up correctly and I'm only now noticing - RATS. I got 2 coffee creamers for $1.99 each, chicken nuggets for $4.99, and a package of cheap hot dogs for $1.49. I hate buying cheap hot dogs, but DH asked for them. I bought regular corn dogs for quick, easy lunches because they were on sale. I bought a couple bags of chips for kid treats with a store coupon making them $1.51 each, a bag of tortilla chips for $0.60 after coupon, shredded cheese for $2.68/pound after a coupon, and organic yogurt for $2.79 for a big tub. On clearance I found a loaf of organic bread for $1.79 and lunchmeat ham for $2.99. Milk was on sale so I got two gallons & those hamburger patties were just $5.49. I also bought some brick cheese. $3.00/lb for Kroger and a no-dye cheddar loaf from Darigold was $5.79. I spent $69.05 altogether.
I knew I needed Daiya cheese, but it was $4.99 at Fred Meyer. So I got online Wednesday morning and found it for $3.89 on Amazon Now. So I placed an order, also buying organic spinach for $3.99 for a dinner I made this week and syrup so I could use up some pancake mix on a kid lunch. I spent $30.31 on this delivery.
Friday night, DH and I had a date night. We saw an early movie, ate pizza together at Costco and shopped. I bought 2 cases of organic coconut milk since it was on sale, feta cheese, Annie's snacks that on sale worked out to $0.25 each snack (my price point), organic garlic cloves, organic frozen corn, organic syrup, organic baby carrots, organic salad mix, organic sausages (also on sale so $3.99 per pack in stead of $4.99) for the kids' lunches, and organic chicken thighs (the small package possible), and conventional brick cheddar for just $4.99, feta (again, the smallest package possible), tortillas, shredded cheese for $2.59/lb, curry sauce I love, bananas, & oranges. I spent a big $159.59. And I reassured my husband that even buying a lot of organic food, I spend less than most folks buying conventional groceries. I think.
I had a date with DD1 this afternoon and we ended up at the Dollar Store. I bought some ramen & cup noodles. Then we went to Haggen since we were in the neighborhood and I got organic romaine heads for $2.79 each bag of 3 and some no-dye Darigold cheddar for $5.49. Between the two stores I spent $13.07.
