This week I attempted to hit three different stores but spend well under my budgeted $80 a week limit. I’m super-excited to say I succeeded.
My first trip was to the Public Market. Since we don’t get our CSA box from October-May, I’ve been jonesing for fresh fruits and vegetables, but I just can’t stomach some of Wegmans’ produce prices. At the public market on Saturday I purchased 4 pomegranates, about 10 pounds of Honeycrisp apples, a bunch of broccoli, a dozen local free-range eggs, and a small jar of local honey. My total was $15.
On Sunday I stopped at Aldi for some staples, mostly for my husband’s lunches. I bought pretzels, lunch meat, sliced cheese, strong cheese, butter (at the low price of $1.99/lb I’m stocking up for holiday baking!), milk, and more eggs (we went through 8 eggs in less than 24 hours). I spent $18.
Finally, of course, I had to go to Wegmans. Usually when I don’t have a lot on my list I tend to overbuy random things because I feel like I have wiggle room. Not this time. I really wanted to stick to the list. But I did get some HOT deals this week:
- Lifeway Kefir: Used FREE coupon from That Freebie Site (no longer available)
- Muir Glen Organic Tomato Sauce & Diced Tomatoes – $.29 each with this printable $.75/1 Coupon (search under food to find it faster)
- Wegmans Unbleached Flour, 5 lbs, $.99
- Stonyfield YoKids Yogurt, $1.99 with $.50/1 coupon from Stonyfield’s website.
(Sorry I don’t have pictures for the Aldi or Wegmans Trips; I left my camera at my mom’s house after I went to the Public Market. Whoops.)This post may contain affiliate links, which help support this site.
