Baker’s: An unexpected trip b/c HV had a power outage and I needed milk. Also got frozen pizzas for the guys. Total for food $14.77.
Bag N Save: Yogurts 3/$1, deli ham 3.99/#, Tyson grilled chicken breast pieces (to replace chicken nuggets) 2.97 – $1 insert coupon = 1.97. Provolone slices 2.99, Swiss 3.49, go figure. Fruit cocktails 1.09, Old Orch juices 1.49, apples and bananas. Total for food $46.50. (I have to say that my cashier was attitudinal, and was being watched. He rang only 2 bag credits, didn’t look me in the eye, and squished everything he could into 2-ton bags. I also see some mis-ring items, but that’s my bad b/c I had to run to the ATM. I didn’t have to say, “Wow, really?” like I was going to, b/c the manager’s glare said it all.)
HyVee: Power back on! Milks no longer on sale 😦 . 1.77/# ground beef chubs, pears. Total for food $14.93.
This puts my monthly total just for food at $328.14! So glad I was able to swing back and get more for the stash. The hot dry weather was making me think of my kitchen as a drought zone, too. Now we have fruit for a while, stuff for BTS, and a comfortable plan for low-fat eating.
Donations toProject Hope this month totalled $10.68, bringing my revised grocery total to $338.82. Hey! That’s right below where I budgeted! I Thrill myself with my spending.
