Here’s how my shopping went this week: I spent $81.25 on Wednesday at King Soopers, Albertsons, Walgreens, and Walmart. I stocked up on granola bars at King Soopers, redeemed a raincheck for whole chickens at Albies, and price-matched some of Rancho Liborio’s and Sunflower’s produce prices at Walmart. Got a few toiletries at Walgreens, a few staples that I was out of at Walmart, and plan on using a little bit of meat from the freezer. Here’s everything I got, minus my Walmart trip:
My table was full of food!
I’ve overspent the past couple of weeks, due to poor planning, having dinner guests 3 times in one week (10 extra adults plus kids!), and a camping trip that I bought a lot of stuff that wasn’t on a great sale. So, I’m hoping to keep my total for the week at $81. I’m going to STAY AWAY FROM THE STORE and use what we have. [Edit: maybe I lied. I might need to go get some fresh ginger and if I’m in the vicinity of an Asian market I’ll pick up some bean sprouts and scallions, so maybe $3 total.]
I still want to stock up some more at King Sooper’s mega event, but want to wait to see what coupons we get for the next two Sundays.
