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 rate, we’re stocked up on some favorites, so maybe that will help keep March’s groceries low.

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 to spend on average $750 per month (or less) on groceries.

Here’s what we bought last week:

Costco – $27.06

Sprout’s & Trader Joe’s – $85.01

Sprout’s – $72

A few weeks ago, Sprout’s had Nut Thins Buy One, Get Two Free, so I bought a few.  The kids really liked them, so I took advantage of this week’s Buy One, Get One Free sale to buy some more.  The pasta sauce was also BOGO as was the Daiya cheese, making the cheese $2.50 a package, which is the cheapest I have found it.

Fry’s – $6

Another day, another jar of applesauce.  I miss eating non-soft food!  The asparagus was .77 a bunch, and the cantaloupe was .97!

Sprouts – $23

Fry’s & Trader Joe’s – $14

TOTAL for this week$227.07

TOTAL for February: $706.87

TOTAL for January: $812.92

Average monthly 2018 TOTAL: $759.90
