We hit Earth Fare Saturday night to get a short grocery list. There was ZERO impulse buying!!! AWESOME!!!!!
Granted I had just been to the grocery store earlier in the week to get ready for Mary Jane's visit and was able to pick up a few things that I would have bought this trip.
Total spent $158.43 Remember this is organic and for 2 weeks. My bill would have been much lower but I bought some high dollar products that I usually don't buy.
Bakery ~ $9.48
Bulk ~ $10.72
Diary ~ $32.17
Grocery ~ $75.90 ~ That's for everything else.
Meat ~ $3.66 ~Ground up turkey to try in a new recipe that was in the new cookbook that Monica gave me.
Veggies & Fruit ~ $27.58
Here is where I spent more than usual:
Chopped Pecans ~ $9.22 This is for a homemade carrot cake with cream cheese icing. I am going to make it for the birthday people in the house (Superdad and H) and Mrs F. I will take it for dessert when we all go out and eat on Saturday night. :)
Vanilla ~ $6.99 This will be used for my baking and such.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil ~ $19.99 I only use olive oil, canola oil or butter to cook with.
Fair Trade Coffee ~ They were on sale for four dollars off. I love this coffee. I bought two because it's never in stock. It's a ground breakfast blend. That was $5.99 x 2. Which is a STEAL!!!
I saved $15.50 for buying with coupons and things on sale.
