Super Savings Saturday - $20 shopping trip


I *think* I'm finally caught up with most things and am feeling mostly back to normal (I still get super tired pretty quickly and have some sinus drainage) but I think this next week is going to be quite normal.  Hurray!   No one likes being ill and I am definitely ready to be done with it!

John and I spent most of our March grocery budget last weekend at Sam's Club stocking up on flour, toilet paper, cheese and some meat so we stuck with $20 for today's shopping trip.  We did just fine!

One store and here's what we purchased:

Vegetable Oil $2.69
Crisco Butter Flavored Shortening $3.89
Hunts Diced Tomatoes 15oz cans 5 @ $0.50each = $2.50
Banquet Sausage 2 @ $0.50 each = $1
Fresh Express Salad $1.50
Green Bell Pepper $0.99
2.79lbs D'Anjou Pears @ $1.29/lb = $3.60
3.25 Yellow Bananas @ $0.59/lb = $1.92
2# Yellow Onions $1.39

Total for all of this: $19.48

Also included in the photo are three boxes of Act Microwave Popcorn at $0.50 each.  Those were purchased for a fundraiser at our children's school.  (I'll post more about that later.)  This came out of a separate budget, so I did not include it in our grocery purchase budget.

According to the receipt we saved $5 today.

Last week we bought enough milk for 3 weeks since it was $1.98/gallon.  We also still have apples, limes, strawberries, carrots, spinach and mushrooms in our fridge from past weeks as well.   It feels good to have a well-stocked pantry and a full freezer again.  We're eating well!
Come back Monday to see what we're eating.

How did you do with your shopping this week?
