Super Savings Saturday: We made our goal of only spending $75 on groceries this month!
As you may recall, our goal for this month was to only spend $75 on groceries, to only buy dairy and produce, and to eat from the pantry.
January is almost over and we made--well, almost!
We went shopping for the third time this month yesterday and spent $23.63 on groceries bringing our total for the month to just shy of $75. And we have plenty on hand to finish out the month so, unless some major catastrophe happens, we should finish out the month hitting our goal.
I did buy contact solution and trash bags this week, so I didn't completely meet the goal of only buying dairy and produce. But I'm happy with how it all went nonetheless--flopped pizza and all!
Here's what we bought:
3 pounds of organic Braeburn apples
Dannon vanilla yogurt
2 bags of frozen mixed stirfry vegetables
International Delight Creamer (used free coupon)
1 gallon milk
1 dozen eggs
1 bag mixed organic apples
2 bunches reduced organic bananas (will freeze most of these for using in banana bread)
2 Happy Baby organic brown rice cereal (used free coupons)
4 Happy Baby organic snacks (used free coupons)
