Soooo..... I went to the store, bought my groceries, came home and put everything away.
And then realized that I didn't take a picture. **Smack forehead!**
So, you'll have to deal with a no-picture pantry challenge shopping trip!
Sorry about that....I'm making myself a big note for next week. Because you know these posts are a lot more fun if I have pictures! Just sayin'.
So our pantry challenge is $50 for the month of January for groceries, toiletries and paper products. Today we shopped at 2 stores. Here's what we bought:
Fresh Express Lettuce 2 bags B1G1 $2.79 w/store coupon
4lb Navel Oranges $1.69 w/store coupon
Large Cantaloupe $2.50
Total Spent: $6.98 Total Saved (from store receipt): $4.10
3.06 lbs Bananas @ $0.49/lb $1.50
5lbs Russet Potatoes 2 bags B1G1 $2.79
1 pint Grape Tomatoes 2 pints B1G1 $2.49
1 Gallon Skim Milk $2.49 w/store coupon
Total Spent: $9.27 Total Saved (from store receipt): $6.39
Total Spent: $16.25 Total Saved: $10.49 (from store receipts)
Total Left for January Pantry Challenge: $33.75
The potatoes will last for a few weeks, the tomatoes for two weeks and the salad will probably last us into next week too, so we're good with all of those for a while. I'd like more fresh fruit but we have pineapple, grapefruit, blueberries and a few apples left over from last week so we should be good for a while yet anyway.
How did you do with frugal shopping this week?
