Food Budget 9.23

really tried to keep a lid on the spending this week.  I didn’t do quite as well as I wanted to, my original goal was to be under $60 for the week.  But I still did pretty good 🙂  Here is what we bought:

PRODUCE:

  • Apples $3.00
  • Beets $3.00
  • Cabbage $1.38
  • Cauliflower $2.76
  • Cilantro $.34
  • Corn $2.25
  • Cucumber $1.00
  • Green beans $4.00
  • Habaneros $2.00
  • Baby kale $3.49
  • Lettuce $6.58 – we bought two of the artisan romaine packs at Costco
  • Onions $4.00 – another 10# bag for storage!
  • Peaches $4.00
  • Plums $6.00
  • Tomatoes $4.00
  • Zucchini $1.00

DAIRY

  • Cotija cheese $4.99
  • 2 pounds cheddar $4.75
  • 1/2 gallon milk $2.79
  • Yogurt $4.99

OTHER

  • 3 dozen eggs $5.98
  • Almond milk $4.98
  • Enchilada sauce $5.00
  • Giant tub of peanut butter $9.99
  • Wholly Guacamole single serve packs $6.39

So the grand total was $98.66, and we shopped 4 different days.  Still better than the $200+ we spent last week!  And that is great considering how much we shopped.  The fridge is bursting right now with fruit and veggies, and the plan from here on out until we leave for vacation is to really scavenge and use up EVERYTHING in the fridge.  We have enough meat and fish in the freezer to get us through 2 weeks I think, and the pantry is full.  Time to get using stuff up!!  This week I’m really going to try to share some meals that we make with all of this stuff 😆
