Grocery Report, April 11 – 17, 2018

April tends to be a busy month for us as many of our yearly obligations end for the summer.  This month, the kids had 4H Fair for archery and Bookworm has had something to do all day Saturday for each of the first three Saturdays of the month.  In addition, my husband had some out […]

Grocery Report, April 1 – 10, 2018

I did A LOT of grocery shopping over the first 10 days of April, and, well, April is a busy month for us.  I did write down all of my receipts in YNAB (affiliate link) to make sure I kept our budget so I know how much I spent overall, but I may have been a […]

Grocery Report, March 21 – 31, 2018

I worked really hard in March to be under budget, and for quite awhile I was.  Then, all three of my kids got sick the last week of the month, and they all wanted different things.  Bookworm just wanted to eat applesauce; Cuddle Bug just wanted grilled cheese and tuna sandwiches (not together, but separately!) […]

Grocery Report, March 14 – 20, 2018

This week I hit the clearance jackpot with Udi’s frozen French baguettes.  We used one package to make Meatball Subs, and I served one plain with our Polish sausage and cabbage meal.  We still have 5 loaves left (out of the 8 I bought).  Wish I could find such good deals on this kind of […]

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 […]

Grocery Report, February 7 – 20, 2018

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 […]

Grocery Report, January 11-17, 2018

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 […]
