January Grocery Hauls

Well it's finally 2021! Time to get back to budgeting. From the lines to get into the store to limited inventory, grocery shopping was a challenge in 2020. Especially in the spring, when I did most of my shopping at Target and ShopRite. I definately bought additional items because we shopped less frequently, paying more compared to other stores.


Here are my latest grocery hauls for the month of January. My budget is $540.00. That includes $100.00 for Costco this month.

UPDATED on January 28, 2021: Total Spent: $541.24

Yikes, I ended the month $1.24 over budget because of a great sale on beef and chicken legs at Whole Foods Market this week! I don't even eat meat but my husband and oldest son love beef stew and pollo guisado.

Everyone is back to school: Our oldest went back to college, so no more grocery shopping dates with the husband. High school has resumed in-person learning since the early fall. The elementary kids continue to go to school 4 days a week for a 5 hours. So I am back to shopping on Sundays, hoping to go every two weeks.
