Grocery Shops in Review

Hey hey, are you here to see what we bought and spent this past week at the grocery store??

I have a lot of catching up to do!

I had a Costco delivery on Saturday, June 16th … can I just tell you how great that is?? I spent $188 and got everything I wanted (veggies, black bean burgers, water, and a bunch of other stuff) within 2 hours of placing the order on line. Seriously?? Why would I ever fight for another parking space again?? Same day delivery is via InstaCart BUT if you go through the Costco app, there is no delivery charge!  Also, the price is marked up a *little* but nothing that would make me say it’s the same or more than a local grocery store so yes, I recommend it!

And then I had a Walmart pick up on Wednesday, June 20th … that is a game changer as well – got me 36 Kcup pods for the price of 18 as they didn’t have any in stock! Again, I placed my order that morning before I went to work and told them I would be by to pick up between 5 and 6pm. They sent me a text at 4:50 and said my order was ready to pick up.  You let them know (via text/app) that you are on your way, what color your car is and then park in one of the Pick Up spots and out they come with your bags! Sweet!

And then …

Trader Joe’s – June 22, 2018

Oops. Had a very specific list …

2 2 packs of cheese enchiladas $1.99 each
2 bags of Colossal cooked shrimp $10.99 each
2 bags of Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken $5.49 each
2 boxes of mac and cheese $2.99 each
2 2 pks of frozen pizza crust $3.29 each
blackberries $5.99 (organic, not that it mattered. They just looked better)
cherries $5.99
olive oil $7.99
shredded hash browns $1.79
blueberries $6.99 (large container)
strawberries $7.99 (ok, it’s 4 pounds!)
raspberries $6.49
pizza sauce $1.99
2 bottles of sparkling lemonade $2.99 each
fresh rosemary $1.69
fresh chives $1.69
seedless watermelon $2.99
2 avocados $1.39 each

and then …

Whole Foods – June 22, 2018
Total Spent – $78.10

Again, had a very specific list …

2 bottles of spring water $1.79 each
bag of Cassava Flour $17.99 (yikes, but I really want to try this!)
chunk of white cheddar cheese $4.75
coffee cream $4.99
container of mango chunks $5.99
bottle of dijon mustard $3.89
2 pkgs of Applegate black forest ham $7.99 each
6 pk broiche buns $4.99
2 preform burgers $3.63 ($3.99 pound)
2 preform burgers $3.83 ($3.99 pound)
2 preform burgers $3.58 ($3.99 pound)
2 preform burgers $3.59 ($3.99 pound)
gallon of milk $3.99

I saved a whopping $2.69 with my Prime membership. Ha.  So, a quick note on the burgers … $3.99 for 85/15 ground beef is a GOOD PRICE these days … not to mention, those burgers being patted out save me (and Hubby) a lot of time at the end of the day so yes, if there isn’t a “premium” added to the fact that they are already made, I’m buying them. PLUS there is nothing added to them, straight up beef.

What have YOU spent at the grocery store this past week??

  1. We shop at Aldi too. It's good for basics to save money.


  2. My husband loves shopping at Aldi and yes you do save money shopping there. Thanks for linking up and sharing with us at #overthemoon. I've pinned and shared on social media. Have a great day and see you next week!Sue from Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond


  3. I'd much rather by my veggies at Aldi than our local grocery store most days … cheaper and a lot of times it looks much fresher! Thanks for coming by!


  4. Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner Party!


  5. sounds like you have a plan up and going and that you have prepared wellcome see us at


  6. thanks for sharing your comparison I appreciate seeing what is on sale in other neighborhoods compared to minecome see us at


  7. I always tend to come out of Costco with more than was on my list…


  8. Thank you for sharing your review with us at #overthemoon link party. Costco has just come to Australia.


  9. Same here for costco….I always end up buying plant bulbs, towels, rugs or christmas ribbon. LOL


  10. You know that one of their things is to move that item over a few feet and put a NEW item in that spot … it's to keep those like ME who know exactly where something is exposed to new products. OMG!


  11. I'd love to hear about the Australian Costco experience!


  12. Right? Like why?? 🙂


  13. Haha! You are right about Walmart on a Friday at 5pm! Looks like you got some good deals. Thank you for sharing at Celebrate It!


  14. Hi Do you have a large family? Because you seem to buy ALOT of food! Ha Ha!! Just wondering. I like your Costco order and the fact that you got it delivered. Haven't tried that yet. I don't go to Costco as much as I used to because now there are just the two of us and most of those items are just too much to use before going bad. And I just read somewhere that people are saying \”why should I pay a store to shop at it?\” which does make sense. Unless you are really going there a lot, I do get their point. It doesn't pay to have to be a member if you don't use the store that often. What do you think? Do you shop there all the time?
