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 […]

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.

Grocery Report, December 1 – 6, 2017

I bought almost all of these groceries for the week on December 1st.  My mom is here for the month, so we haven’t decided yet if we’re going to temporarily increase the grocery budget to accommodate her or if we’re going to leave it as is and rely on our stock to make it through. […]

Grocery Report, November 22 – 30, 2017

  This was my first month implementing my new grocery plan, and though I still went over budget, it was just a little over budget ($22.89), which is much better than my usual couple of hundred over budget. This post contains affiliate links. Plus, we’re continuing to stock up the freezer.  This week, we got […]

Grocery Report, November 16 – 21, 2017

Call this week the week I wasted grocery money. Two things bothered me about this week. First, Bookworm and I were going to have a late night and needed to pack our dinner to eat in the car.  I stopped by Whole Foods and got some gluten free bread and lunch meat.  We were in […]
