I thought I had better get this up and running so everyone could post their shop. What I might do is post The Grocery Game Challenge by
Monday Tuesday of each week so shoppers can post instead of waiting for me to shop.
I will then update this post as we shop to show what’s happening in our grocery budget. This week is supposed to be a no-shop week for us but we may end up spending a couple bucks.
Starting $329.85+8.16+9.85+7.93+43.65= $390.93+ $9.25=$400.18 ouch That’s $ 210.18 over budget for March- Final. We will try even harder next month to stay on track. We stocked up on a few items for summer time that we had coupons for that were expiring. Sometimes if you have the savings in coupons and there is a sale you have to take advantage and that’s what we did.
This week we went to Metro as we were told it is the best place to redeem our FPC’s but it made NO and I repeat NO difference to Air Miles. As a matter of fact we received 0 Air Miles but the 5 from a coupon we presented that came in the mail.
We also went to Walmart to price match a couple items that we wanted to stock up on for summer.
Here is the Break Down:
5x FPC Cracker Barrel Cheese $4.98=FREE
1x Hellmans Mayo PM Freshco -$3.00
5x Black Diamond Slices $2.00-.75= $1.25 each ( the kids like this in the summer for grilled cheese and sandwichs)
Total OOP- $9.25
4x Oasis $1.99- FPC
2x Stouffers Bistro Pizzeria $3.79-FPC
1x Stouffers Meal $3.79- FPC
2x Stouffers Sensations $8.49 each -FPC
1x Stouffers Easy Express $3.99- FPC
2x Dr.Oetker Mousse -$1.67 each -FPC
1x Nestle Aero Bubbles $3.99-FPC
3x Right Guard Deoderant $ 3.99- FPC

2x Febreeze Candles $10.49 each- FPC
1x Dads Cookies -$3.99- FPC
1x Always Pantyliner- $8.99- FPC
$102.65 + tax $6.67 = $109.32
