When my husband went to Flagstaff for work last week, we tagged along. I brought almost all of our food (all freezer meals from my big freezer cooking session), and we bought some groceries there. However, that money came out of our vacation fun.
So, this week was a light grocery shopping week. The goal, according to our plan to reduce our grocery costs in November is to spend no more than $125 a week for basic grocery, giving us $500 a month, and then another $250 available for stock up items.
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 & Basha’s – $53.63
We were all out of veggies at home, so I did a big veggie stock up at Costco. I love Costco’s price on organic produce! This trip, just the Brussels sprouts and broccoli weren’t organic.
Sprout’s – $18.04
(Not pictures are a bunch of bananas and a bag of organic, frozen peas and carrots.)
TOTAL for October: $1,180.05
TOTAL for September: $1,022.29

Average for 3 months: $957.06
