We did well this past week on what groceries I bought last Friday, with the exception of Mr. Awesome's© Pepsi addiction. He vowed to cut back after I showed him the cost of drinking one 2 Liter a day. Yes, he's already aware of the nasty health consequence. He tried to cut back, I think, but plowed through the five 2 liters I bought on sale and ended up purchasing another 2 for $3.00. At least he's trying!! I bought seven this week but will be hiding three in the pantry for emergency backup.
I went $11.90 over my $120 budget for this week which is a bummer but given the state I was in while shopping it could have been much worse. Today was a rough day.
Meijer had a decent 10 for $10 get the 11th item free sale: Pepsi, hand soap, ziploc baggies, Rotel, and deodorant. They were out of family pack of their pork ribs for $1.49/lb.
Most important items I picked up today:
Friday: Baked Potatoes (using up the last of the leftover chili as topping)
Saturday: Beef Au Jus sandwiches(was supposed to be BBQ Ribs) and Chipotle Cheddar Mashed Potatoes
Sunday: Chicken Tacos (bought split breasts for $0.99lb and will cook Saturday and shred)
Monday: Black Bean Burgers and Fries
Tuesday: Chicken Pot Pie (realized as I typed this I forgot pie crusts...will be making them from scratch!!)
Wednesday: Smoked Sausage and Fried Potatoes
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Egg, Sausage and Cheese Burritos
Off to ease my aching back.....Deborah
