At the same time this new way of eating is costing us more at the grocery store. We've decided that eating better is a major priority for our health and we would just have to spend more. Your health is your wealth, my husband likes to say.
This week though I made it my mission to get a handle on it a little bit. I'm proud to say we were pretty close to my $100.00 a week goal (total spent $115.00) and we were able to stock up! So here is what we spent this week:
Hamburger (on sale for $1.99 a pound), a couple bags of candy for the grandchildren, and cottage cheese. Total spent $43.00.
I froze most of the hamburger in these hamburger freezer containers that I found at different garage sales this year ($4.00 total cost). So handy when we or the grandchildren need just a hamburger for dinner.
We went to a Farm Market in a nearby town. My husband was wanting the blueberries they were advertising on Facebook. It was a wonderful little market situated next to their farmhouse. We were able to buy day old fruit 1/2 off!
Blueberries 3 pecks (I froze them immediately), peaches (a peck), 4 dozen fresh eggs ($2.50 a dozen), and a huge honey rock. Total spent $43.00.
Local market - 2 packs of Koegel's bologna for $4.50- total spent 9.00
All detergent $.99 (after coupon)
2 packs of pork rinds $1.79 each
1 pack of better pork rinds apparently $3.09
Kroger soup $.79 (bought 5)
5 Kroger shredded cheese .99 (Friday/Saturday coupon) bought 5
Kraft dressing (free after coupon that was mailed to my home)
Milk -$1.29 a gallon (bought 1)
Total spent $20.47
Total spent $115.00
