Grocery Report, October 5 – 11, 2017

The kids and I stopped by Natural Grocer to get a few things when, HELLO!, I saw a sign that said all bacon, any type, was just $2.99!  Our normal bacon that costs $6.99 a package was included in this sale.  I bought 6 packages, but I’m not going to lie, next week I plan to go back and buy some more.

So, I’ll be stocking up on bacon.  Last month, I also stocked up with a 50 pound bag of gluten free oats and a boat load (yes, that’s my official term) of pineapples that I got for .88 each a few weeks ago.  We’ve been eating quite a few fresh, but about 1/2 have made their way into the freezer for future smoothies.

To try to get our grocery budget regularly at $750 or $800 a month, I’m realizing that I need to stock up when things are cheap, even if it is a bit more inconvenient (like cutting all of the pineapples).

Just a Few Facts About Us

Our family of 5 chooses to eat mostly organic produce and grass-fed and pasture-raised meats.  I’m Paleo, my daughter is semi-Paleo, and the rest of us are gluten free.  Everyone except my husband is dairy free.  Our goal for the last few months of the year is to spend on average $750 per month on groceries.

Here’s what we bought over the last two weeks:

Costco & Sprout’s- $112.52

Natural Grocers – $35.37

See all the bacon-y goodness!

Sprout’s – $27.23

I bought this bacon before I knew it was on sale at Natural Grocers.  🙁  However, the chips were buy 1, get 2 free, so I got some for the kids.

Howard’s Orchard – $42.00

We went to the orchard we visited last month.  This time we got 23 pounds of Jonathon Gold apples, 11 pounds of pears, and 2 pounds of tomatoes.  We should have enough apples and pears to last us a few weeks.
