I am a shopping GOD! Worship me! Bring me a sammich!!
I had a budget of $350 for food and various stuffs from the grocery store today. I got $340 worth of food. I only paid $270 for it! Woohoo! I've been planning meals around what's on sale, and since I started doing that we've been paying about $130-150 a week for groceries and getting more stuff every time. Last time we spent $280, but had to go back for $20 worth of stuff. This time we got everything on the list, plus extras like ice cream and popcorn.
It was actually sort of fun too... kind of like a scavenger hunt. Looking for the 2-for-1, the family pack, the buck off. Lots of meat was buy one, get one free. I have so many beer brats that I am going to need some Pepto and extra TP!
And I got a whole chicken! and 72 cans of Pepsi! It was everything I could do not to buy a giant package of crab legs, just because!
Can you tell I'm excited?
I got Hot Pockets! Making some tacos tonight. I've got BEERS!!
Actually, I bought some beers at the gas station because the prices are so much better. It is odd... the gas station charges $12 for ketchup, and $4 less for a 12-pack of Shock Top. Woo!
Next time? I try to get even more food, for even less money. I might use a... dare I say? I might use a coupon!!
