We settled into a little better budget this month since we’ve finally put up enough food to have a lot of “fresh” so our cost will go down. If you haven’t seen my previous food budget posts, we budget $225 a month for “household and grocery”. Here’s what we picked up.
I had several Vitacost credits (they were doing $10 off anything with each person that signs up under you but now it’s $10 off $30, still a good deal!) I picked up, Dishwasher Detergent, Dishwasher Rinse Aid (this is the only stuff that seems to work for us), Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips x3, Newmans Mints x3, Bob’s GF Oats x2.
Sam’s Club: $21
Sour Cream, 5lb Cheese
Azure Standard: $140
Drainbo Drain Cleaner, Cream Cheese 9lb, Tomatoes, Spinach, Celery, Hot Dogs, Avocados, Vegenaise, Eggnog, Half & Half, Potato Starch x2, Olives, Baby Food, Oranges 40lb, Cheesecloth, Potatoes 5-lb (not shown).
Yay, we made it well under budget this month! We used our bulk buying methods to plan our shopping this month as we always do. Of course there is no meat in our monthly budgeting since that is all purchased in bulk just a few times a year.
I know our shopping methods are not typical so if you have questions for me please feel free to email or comment!
