Grocery Report, March 7 – 13, 2018

I’m still planning on keeping my groceries well under budget this month, but Sprout’s derailed my plans a little bit with great clearance deals.  This week was higher than I’d like, but I think I can keep expenses down for the next two weeks.  (I hope!) Just a Few Facts About Us Our family of […]

Grocery Report, March 1 – 6, 2018

This month, I’m trying to keep my groceries well under budget.  I’d like to have a little extra available in future months if I want to have a freezer cooking session (which always seems to put me over my monthly budget) or if I want to stock up at a great sale.  This week, I […]

Grocery Report, February 21 – 28, 2018

I was hoping to come in a bit lower for the month of February, but then Sprout’s had a great BOGO sale, which I couldn’t resist.  I did come in under budget for the month, which helped to handle last month’s over spending, but I would have liked the total to be lower.  At any […]

The grocery report for the last two weeks! 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 2018 is […]

Grocery Report, February 1 – 6, 2017

I’m trying to pay cash for my groceries in an effort to rein in my spending.  I’m also taking all of the change I receive and putting it in a vacation fund to travel to Michigan, so unless I pay by check or credit card, all of my shopping will now be rounded up to […]

My mom left last week (boo hoo!), but before she left, she gave us money for groceries for her 6 weeks here.  We used that money to stock up on some items like meat from Butcher Box. Just a Few Facts About Us Our family of 5 chooses to eat mostly organic produce and grass-fed […]

Grocery Report, January 1-10, 2018

I knew that sticking to budget in January would be tough because I wanted to have a massive freezer cooking session when my mom was visiting, and I also needed to stock up on some things like some meat and organic blueberries. However, I about fell out of my chair when I added up how […]

Grocery Report, December 21 – 31, 2017

Well, December is over, and we were able to stick to our $750 budget even though we were feeding an additional adult all month long.  That’s quite an accomplishment for us as we usually struggle to stay within the $750 budget just for the 5 of us.  January might be a challenging month, though, because […]

Grocery Report, December 14 – 20, 2017

There are 10 days left in the month, and so far, I’ve been able to stay within our $750 budget even with feeding another adult.  I’ve also managed to double a few meals so I can put some away in the freezer.  However, while my mom is here visiting, I really, really want to have […]

Grocery Report, December 7 – 13, 2017

As a reminder, part of my plan to reduce our grocery budget is to buy about $250 in stock up items each month and $500 in regular groceries.  I wasn’t keeping good track of that, so this week, I tried to separate out stock up items and regular weekly purchases.
