My Grocery Haul for the Week of April 21!


We are back from our road trip down South. Since Easter was on Sunday, I went to the stores on Saturday. I shopped 3 stores and spent $121.37 so far. I say that because I plan on heading to ShopRite on Wednesday to pick up a cake and the rest of the ingredients for our oldest boy's birthday dinner. That will put me over our maximum weekly budget of $125.00 but it is cheaper than take out.

I spent $39.53 at Aldi

This week's savings: 31% compared to ShopRite prices.

I spent $27.23 at Whole Foods Market

This week's purchases defined: I decided to try Quorn® Meatless Ground for the first time, having given up eating meat in February. For a $1.00 your favorite Quorn® product, click here.

Our local ShopRite hasn't stocked Coleman Natural Hotdogs in the past month, so I am trying different brands of hotdogs that don't contain nitrates or nitrites. Unfornuately, these hotdogs are $5.99 compared to $3.99 for the Coleman at ShopRite. of donuts, I treated our family to croissants, eliminating a trip to Dunkin Donuts. Although they are $7.00, all 5 of us eat them. Not all of my kids eat donuts.

I spent $54.61 at Costco

This week's purchases defined: It was time to stock up on frozen fruit. I use the blueberries in oatmeal and the pineapple for snacks and in smoothies. I purchased the frozen pizzas since they were on sale for $5.99 through May 12. That is less than $1.50 per pizza.
