Grocery Shopping this week = $38.70

Each week we have $40 budgeted towards groceries. I like to post what I bought, because it keeps me accountable to our budget and also encourages people to spend less.

This week we just went to Dollar General and Meijer in Urbana.

Dollar General = $10.64
There is supposed to be another jar of Planters nuts, but my husband snagged them to take to work. So just imagine it being there. I had coupons for everything except the cheese.

Meijer = $28.06
I think this was my best run to Meijer in a long time. I had a huge stack of coupons, and my cashier was so nice and didn't question a single one (none of them beeped either!). So I was very happy about that.

The pasta was only $0.59 each after coupons. And the soup was only $0.50 each after coupons.

How did you do this week on grocery shopping? I'm trying to cut back even more now that the holidays are approaching.


  1. Your blogs are the best. I heart Meijer! Yes, I still check this site every day for new updates.

  2. Thanks Crystal! I always know that you're watching and waiting for updates! Thanks for always reading!
