The Grocery Game Challenge-March 19-25 Week 4

In light of today being the first day of Spring that means fresh fruit,vegetables and meats will be in our meals more frequently in our home. We love fresh vegetables and fruits for lighter meals in the hot weather. So I thought some juicy red Canadian cherries to be proper as this weeks picture of choice!

Well as I mentioned to most of you we will be over budget this month in the grocery budget. I realize that budgets aren’t bullet proof and sometimes we will go over budget- we are human!

  •  We start this week at $244.75 that’s already $54.75 over our $190.00 budget this month.- See all updates at the end of post as this number has changed!

There are 2 reasons why we are going over budget

1- We are stockpiling items that are a great price

2- Shoppers Drug Mart 20x point event

I don’t know that every time there is a Shoppers Drug Mart event we take part in that we will go over budget but this time we have. We will see our grocery budget eventually go up starting in July as we host students from Europe for the summer.

We begin to stockpile items that we know they like to eat such as pancakes, syrup, nutella, bread, cheese, snacks, cheese etc.  With this we will also see higher utility bills mainly water and hydro. I will go into more detail on the hosting in a future post.

So for this week here is our Grocery Shop! I hope you post yours and continue to strive to beat your Budget! If you don’t at least have the money in a savings account to cover overage to eliminate putting the costs on credit.

    Did you know that oz-oz instant coffee is more expensive than perk? Not that coffee is good for one, but there are preservative along with the freeze-dried coffee to keep its shelf life longer…

    Just sayin…

    • We actually use both because when I go to work I don’t like to wait nor do I like to make a pot of coffee. When we are not working we use the coffee machine. We drink mostly tea. We just quit smoking so one habit at a time for us lol.. in the end.. anythings better than Starbucks and Tim Hortons! Thanks for your post Tim..always welcome. Cheers Mate. Mr.CBB

  2. 30% off meat – woohoo! That is how we like to get our lamb from the Superstore. Loved this week’s Independent Grocery deal of Sirloin top steak for $7.64/kg – took it to Superstore (because our Independent never has what they have on special) to Superstore and watched the butcher reduce their steaks for me from $18</kg down to the new price – I walked out with over $55 of steak for less than $25 – great for grilling in the lovely weather!

    • As If I would be so lucky to be at the store at the right time and have the Butcher reduce the price of steaks for me lol… I can’t remember the last time I had a steak. Might have to splurge this summer! Great prices! Make sure you post your shop for The Grocery Game Challenge so you get another entry! Cheers Mr.CBB

  3. Hey Mr CBB,
    A lovely lady, Sue, posted on the Ottawa Coupon Swap Facebook page a list of COSTCO meat prices to use as a comparison. I now have this on my iPhone so when I see a sale, I can compare against this list and see if it really is a great deal (and doesn’t make me have to buy the COSTCO size that may or may not fit in my little freezer!):

    Boneless skinless chicken breast $6.59/lb or $14.49/kg
    Pork tenderloin $3.63/lb or $7.99/kg
    Pork loin centre + rib chops boneless $2.68/lb or $5.89/kg
    Sirloin tip oven roast $4.09/lb or $8.99/kg
    Eye round oven roast $4.54/lb or $9.99/kg
    Top sirloin oven roast $5.45/lb or $11.99/kg
    Lean ground beef $2.54/lb or $5.59/kg
    Beef tenderloin steak $13.63/lb or $29.99/kg
    Strip loin steak $8.63/lb or $18.99/kg
    Rib steak $9.99/lb or $21.99/kg
    Top sirloin steak $5.45/lb or $11.99/kg
    Whole chicken fryer $2.45/lb or $5.39/kg

    • What a great list she has put together! Thanks for sharing that with all of the Canadian Budget Binder readers! I’m sure everyone looking for some great meat at a good price will love this chart. Cheers! Mr.CBB

    • Hi Lindsey,
      Thanks for playing The Grocery Game Challenge this week you get Ballot #14. I know we have a no shop week next week and we are already over budget BUT we need to stockpile some items for our summer students. We will also be using all our Mar FPC coupons. I’m just going to look at the flyers now! A birdie told me I might get some free POM!!! Cheers Mr.CBB

      • I hate going over, but it happens sometimes. Just one question how are you getting the free POM? I always find that everyone has lots of coupons from tear pads…but I can never find them. Is there a store that you find them most often? I love the grocery game, I like to see how other people do it and try to figure out where I can save…I’m a stay at home mom, and my husband works very hard for our money so my theory is he works too hard to just give it away:)

        • We did find $1.00 off any POM at Walmart a while ago but they expired. The one’s we are talking about expire March 31,2012 and are from the Smart Source I believe. We never found any when No Frills had it on offer so we’re not holding our breathe on this one. You never know though, I’m going to be optimistic. The POM juice is so good. Hope that answers your question and as always if you have any further questions don’t be shy, just because I’m a guy!! ha.. I’m horrible at making funnies! Cheers Lindsey! Mr.CBB

    • Hi Kathleen,
      Thanks for playing The Grocery Game Challenge. Words getting around and I’m finding more people wanting to post their shop to keep them in line with their budget.

      I presume your weekly budget is $100? You seem to doing pretty awesome, I think you have much more strength than we do. Shopping is the hardest part of budgeting for us and this is why we started this game. It helps to post our shop online as it keeps us mindful of it.

      I have 2 of the Bulk Barn coupons as well and I need some cocoa and SDM has it on for $3.49 but I was wondering if I should just go to BB and get my pure vanilla and cocoa and be done with it. What’s the honey like from Bulk Barn I noticed you purchased it?

      Thanks for posting, hopefully you get my above response and respond for me. You get Ballot #15! Yay! Make sure to come back next week and post your shop and your Budget for the month. Cheers Mr.CBB

      • Kathleen says:

        The honey at Bulk Barn is nice… I’ve just switched over to the liquid from creamed so it’s taken some getting used to on my toast this week ;-) but it tastes great. The quantity I got will last me a while, so I put it in the fridge and just have a small squeezy bear in the cupboard…

  6. im going to list a few, im still new at all this.

    I’d love to add more later if i can? Right now i have to retrieve my sick child from her friends house. :(

    • Hi Paula,
      Thanks for joining The Grocery Game Challenge”. I realize people are new at this but it’s fairly easy. Every week I will post my grocery budget and my grocery shop here at Canadian Budget Binder. When you see the post ( it’s best to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss it) you come and post your grocery budget and shop for the week. That’s it! Every time you do this in the month you get a Ballot in our Monthly Give-away! So today you get Ballot #16. I’m sure next week you will have it down to a science! I hope your child feels better Paula.

      Cheers

    • Hi Nicola, Welcome back to post your shop! You get Ballot #18 (I can’t believe how many people are playing the game now I’m so happy to have others following their grocery shopping with me.)

      Looks like you did quite a bit wow. Seems you are hooked on those AllBran Bars so are we. We love them especially the orange cranberry. Those tins of ALymer Tomatoes I did the math and next time you see PRIMO or UNICO 750g I believe cans on sale for $0.77 or $.88 or $0.99 its a WAY better deal and no coupons needed.
      All you do is add in some oregano and basil and it’s just as well..

      With summer on the way and some great deals I’ve stockpiled this month putting us around $200 over budget. I know it’s alot but it will benefit us. The key is to always have the money in emergency savings if you are going to be over budget otherwise it makes no sense.

        yes we have saved for a meat pack this month so that will really fill the freezer so hoping to be pretty low next week on the food bill. We usually budget $250 high end and $150 low end so it should equal itself out and we do have an emergency fund too!

        • That’s great you have an Emergency Fund. I know without having one I would feel nervous. I’m hoping our bill is back to normal next month, better yet it’s going to be no if’s and’s or buts! Mr.CBB

    I haven’t done my weekly shopping yet (later on tonight) but I did pick up 10 containers of Greek yogurt at Buy Lows Foods for 97 cents a container – I had 10 coupons and walked away with the yogurt and 30 cents in my pocket :)

    • That’s Ok Gael as Next weeks shop Starts tomorrow and I haven’t even shopped * well I’m not supposed to as its a no shop week for us*
      We have alot of FPCs to use up. Once I post you are good to post your shop. I can’t wait to try that Greek Yogurt. It’s one thing I miss from the UK is proper yogurt nice and thick. WOW, that’s a great deal how did you get that, were they reduced?
