Time for our final installment of our weekly grocery and menu plans for this month!
Check out the links for all of this months previous installments.
So what are we looking at this week? Our normal grocery budget is $100 per week. This week was a bit less thanks to the hubby needing some toiletries a few days prior to our normal shopping day. I sent him to the store for his own products and added on 2 gallons of milk, 5 loafs of bread, and 2 boxes of spaghetti. He spent $35 from the grocery budget leaving $65 plus some loose change for this weeks groceries. I also decided to buy the groceries for the rest of the month while I was out and about. So that is $65 for 10 days. Lets get started!
25lbs flour $7.99
6lbs tomato sauce $2.69
7lbs brown sugar $3.99
9lb spiral ham $22.66
7 loafs of bread $6.51
Iceberg lettuce $1.19
20lbs potatoes $3.98
2 gallons skim milk $5.98
2lbs Pinto Beans $1.89
40oz Peanut butter $3.49
75' aluminum foil $1.99
That is $1.76 under budget!
*I don't normally shop at Costco for a weekly grocery shopping trip. I however needed the large quantities of flour and tomato sauce and hoped they would have the cheapest option for a spiral cut ham for Christmas dinner. I saved quite a bit by hitting up Costco this week. I however am still quite frustrated by the cost of ham this year! I hear tales that hams are down to $1 a pound throughout the country. Wouldn't that be wonderful here!?
So how are we using these items for this weeks meals?
Scrambled egg with ham and cheese
Pancakes with homemade syrup
Biscuits and gravy
