Grocery Shopping This Past Week

I made it! I managed to stay out of the grocery stores for a WHOLE week. Woohoo!

Yeah. It’s not a big deal but the fact that I opted to do a No Spend Week without any prior thought is sort of a huge deal … meaning I didn’t go out and “prepare” for the week ahead!

And we survived!

Here’s how I broke that spending fast!

I didn’t buy this many LaCroix cases this week as they were 
NOT on sale buy one get one free!

Aldi – May 26th, 2017
Total Spent – $4x.xx (can’t find my receipt so need to go dig around my shopping bags) I had my sister in law in tow with me so it was not a “focused” shopping trip (update, no luck at all in finding that receipt!)

And a few other things …

12 pk LaCroix Berry $4.00
4 pkgs of bacon $9.19 each less 2 as they were buy one get one free

1 small coconut water (sister in law) 1.69

Hubby then went to Smitty’s and picked up his favorite hot dogs, then Publix for some brats and sauerkraut and MORE buns … I believe he spent around $30 … 

Crazy. I should go through and put an asterisk next to everything that was NOT on my list and see how much that would have been.

So guess what’s coming up THIS week? Another NO SPEND WEEK which means I’m staying out of the grocery store until at least Monday, June 5th!  We have PLENTY of food at this moment to last us until then and beyond!
