What $100 in Groceries Looks Like

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry11 Comments

As I mentioned this spring, I came to realize quite quickly that coupon clipping is not for me. Well, at east not in the extreme sense. I don’t mind clipping the occasional coupon in the Sunday paper, but I’m not going to spend hours scouring the internet for the best deals on everything I buy each week. I just do not have the time, my friends. But I have been having quite a bit of success with comparison shopping the weekly sales of the two grocery stores we shop at locally – HyVee and Fareway. I try to stick to spending $100 each week on groceries, which goes pretty far, as you can see. Here’s a look at what we got this week:

{Lettuce, strawberries, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, grapes, avocados, sweet and regular potatoes, frozen mixed berries for smoothies, and bananas}

{Starbucks coffee, Wheat Thins, Kashi cereal, Quaker oats, Larabars, Truvia}

{Almond Milk, Chocolate Milk, Greek Yogurt, Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheese, Eggs}

{Pasta sauce (on sale 3/$4!), Peanut Butter, canned black and kidney beans, ketchup}

Do you all try to stick to a grocery budget? Or just go and get what you need? I always shop with a list, but find that there are always a couple items I purchase that aren’t on my list but I just can’t resist.

Happy Sunday, all!
