Budget, pt 2

Grocery Budget Reform, Week 2

Okay, so you may not give a rat’s, you know what (where did that saying come from?!) about the budget, but I’m going to tell you anyway.

So, week two rolls in at..............22.71

And this time I saved (insert even louder drum roll) 24.53!

Granted, I wasn’t able to buy meat like I was last week-although I did buy Tilapia. But I totally stocked up on frozen veggies (insert summertime remorseful blegh) for a really great deal.

Meijer had Green Giant boxed frozen veggies on sale 10 for 10 bucks, get the 11th free, and I had a coupon for saving 50 cents off two. Meijer doubles coupons so I basically did a BOGO.

I also had a coupon for other Green Giant Frozen Steamers. They were on sale for 1.54 and I had a 50 cent (1.00) coupon, so I only spent 54 cents a bag. Now we have a nice assortment of veggies to choose from (brussel sprouts, beans, pea pods, broccoli, broccoli with rice and cheese, red potatoes with green beans, and sweet corn).

The menu we have planned so far-and really not yet in order-is Chili Mac (leftover chili from last week), Tilapia fillets, Crockpot Lasagna, Grilled Pork Chops (in the freezer), and I wanted to do a chicken but Meijer was out of their sale chicken.

It’s still early but I’m left with 2.29 for the remainder of the week.
