My Grocery Spending: Week of 6/12-6/18

by Marcy on June 14, 2008 · 0 comments

I spent $72.34 at Kroger this week. I didn’t have very many coupons ($6.70) and really didn’t score any awesome deals. I’m thankful that I was able to get what I needed for under $75, but will admit that going to the grocery is becoming more frustrating to me lately. My freak out of this week was seeing that a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is over $1! I think it was $1.09. Just a short time ago they were $0.66/ea or less at my local Kroger.

I know that I have no control over rising prices, so all that I can do is to continue shopping around, using coupons, buying wisely and trying not to waste anything. I also need to start checking out our local farmers market now that it is open.

Ok…here is a run down of what I purchased for $72.34. I am fortunate that I have both beef and chicken in the freezer for our meals next week! I spent my “meat” money on bacon and lunch meat for club sandwiches instead. We don’t have them very often, and I decided it would be our “pretend we are at a restaurant” meal for this week (typically our Friday night meal).
