Guys, I’m so proud of myself this week! I wanted to buy wipes at Sam’s Club because they were on sale until 9/20, and those were $14.36 plus tax. I also had to buy diapers; she wears cloth during the day but disposable at night because of her skin. So because of both of those, I had a small budget to work with for food. I’m happy to say I only spent $32.00 on food for us that’ll last the whole week, yay! And it’s all pretty healthy! Let’s see what I got.
Huggies diapers: $7.99. I normally don’t ever buy name brand diapers. However, I only had to spend $7.77 more in baby products at Meijer to get a $10.00 reward for my next shopping trip, so I bought something as close to that as possible. Yay for a free ten dollars for next week!
Green peppers: $1.29
Ground turkey: $1.89
Box of couscous: $.69. I’ve never had couscous before and it was on clearance, so I decided to try it!
Greek yogurt: $3.69
Grape tomatoes: $.69
2 cans of diced tomatoes: $.55 each
Olive oil: $2.99
Banana peppers: $1.49
Tomato paste: $.39
String cheese: $2.79
2 bags of spinach: $.69 each
Cream cheese: $.99
Block of cheddar cheese: $1.89
Sweet potatoes: $1.99
2 gallons of milk: $2.49 each
Total: $32.68. This was after a $5.00 direct mail coupon I received!
Weekly total: $56.90
