Kroger Shop

When we got home from vacation my daughter took me grocery shopping.  So here is what I got.

18 eggs
1/2 gallon of milk
2 boxes of instant iced tea mix (dh will only drink this)
2 small bags of pistachio
12 cans of dog food
1.51 pounds of cabbage
2 pounds of carrots
5 apples
1 pkg of diapers

Spent:  $31.25
Minus diapers:  $5.49
Spent on food:  $25.76

Daughter took eggs, milk and most of our fresh stuff while we were on vacation.  I had put bread and buns in the freezer before I left so I didn't have to buy bread.  The dog food is 3 weeks worth as we only give her half a can at a time to take her meds with.  The pistachios were on sale really cheap so a treat for dh.

Hopefully won't need anything at least until Saturday.

Update

I had surgery shortly after the last post on my left wrist and elbow and dh took over cooking.  Mistake.  Blew the month's budget out of the water.  Then we went on vacation.  So we are back and I am starting again.  I will post shop in a min.

The Challenge Has Started .....

June 2 was the first paycheck of June, and our anniversary, so I can now say that the challenge has officially started.

Saturday saw me at the grocery store needing canning supplies, which is a different category.  I decided to pick up a few items then.  I forgot to take a picture but here is what I got:

Snyder cheese crackers (wanted to try, they're ok but won't buy again)
2 boxes turkey sausage patties
1 container baby food
2 bottles of yellow mustard
1 container grape tomatoes

Total spent:  $20.32
Total left for the week:  $4.68

I can do this.  I will post my menu in a little bit.

total spent:  $6.11
total so far this week:  $20.07

Grocery Shopping May 20, 2017


In anticipation of next months pantry challenge I am trying to buy as little as possible the rest of this month.

I went to Kroger this afternoon and came away with:

Ritz crackers  (free)
hamburger buns
hot dog buns
1 loaf of bread
celery
mushrooms
2 containers of dog food
2 pkgs of gum
2 containers of yogurt
1 container of formula

Total:  $25.12
Subtract baby formula:  $11.16
Total spent:  $13.96

I forgot to take a picture before I put it away.  The gum and yogurt will also get rebates back from Ibotta.

Not bad.  I may have to go back and get lemon juice as I forgot that but I can't think of anything else.
