I didn’t take a picture of my groceries this week. But on the bright side I didn’t have to buy any meat (other than sandwich meat) because I have a roast, whole chicken and some chicken breasts in my freezer! Yay!
I saved $6.75 at HEB:
- Saved $4.43 buying generic brand
- Saved $1.82 buying on sale items (ketchup, sweet potatoes, zucchini) I don’t think this counts the 2 items I bought on clearance because the packaging was damaged. I got a pack of 8 juice boxes for $1 and 8 lbs of cat food for $6, oh how I love clearance items!
- Saved $.50 with Tabasco coupon I printed off.
My total in food groceries at HEB was: $52.70
I also went to Sam’s. I got cheese, salad mix and olive oil. And I spent $40 renewing my membership, which I think should count towards my grocery bill. My total at Sam’s (counting renewing my membership) was: $69.60
So my grand total for food groceries was: $137.20 bringing my total for this month up to $280.70, a little higher than my $250 goal, but I did spend $40 renewing my Sam’s Club membership. Hopefully my groceries will last for the next two weeks with only a small trip to the grocery store if I need produce or milk.
Here’s my 2 week menu plan:
Breakfasts: Chocolate zucchini bread (Recipe coming tomorrow, it’s my favorite sweet bread!), oatmeal, toast, smoothies, eggs, bananas
Lunches: Sandwiches, leftovers, bean burritos
- Ramen noodle stir fry
- Chicken spaghetti with sweet potatoes on the side
- Pizza with salad
- Chicken burgers with homemade oven fries
- Chicken pasta salad
- Bean Burgers (I’ve made bean burgers before, but it’s been a long time and I’ve never tried this particular recipe)
- Roast (remember how I got buy one get one free?)
- Stew made from leftover roast and if feel like it I might make whole wheat bread or biscuits to go with this
- Bean burritos with fresh salsa, chips and avocados
- Chicken strips served over a salad
I have some brown rice leftover from last week. Any ideas on how I can use it? I’ve already wasted enough food this week, don’t want to waste more!
