It’s Monday! That Means Groceries!

I have to say, I was loving grocery shopping today (despite the fact that we have winds that are gusting a bazillion miles per hour and I realized that I forgot my purse at home AFTER I was in the store). It all worked out in the end. Today, I visited two stores in search of deals, and I came out quite victorious! Here’s my haul:

Today I brought home:

  • 4 boxes of Kellogg’s cereal
  • 1 box of Entenmann’s mini cakes
  • 4 bottles of Garnier Fructis products
  • 1 bottle of Wisk detergent
  • 1 bottle of International Delights creamer
  • 1 jar of Planter’s peanut butter
  • 1 bag of Domino brown sugar
  • 2 packages Thomas’ english muffins
  • 1 package seasoned chicken leg quarters
  • 1 package Hormel ham lunchmeat
  • 1 package Jennie-O turkey kielbasa
  • 1 package Hillshire Farms chicken sausage
  • 1 loaf of white bread
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 containers organic spring mix lettuce
  • 1 bunch bananas
  • 1 package fresh brussels sprouts
  • 1 package Treasure Cave gorganzola cheese
  • 1 garlic and herb seasoned pork roast
  • 1 container Daisy lowfat cottage cheese
  • 1 loaf fresh Italian bread

And now for the numbers:

  • Total retail value: $96.44
  • Total spent: $44.43 (UNDER budget even with me buying milk later this week)
  • Total saved: $52.01 (54%)
  • The savings are actually higher due to the fact that the organic lettuces I purchased were marked down from $4.99 to $.99 each, but the $8.00 I saved there was not reflected in the receipt.

Not bad if I must say so myself! Have a great Monday everyone!


About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
