My Grocery Budget - August Update


This month turned out to be another stock up month for me.  I stocked up the pantry with pasta, enough to last a long, long time and olives for the holidays and my youngest's olive addiction.  I added more lunchmeat to the freezer that I found on markdown too.  Produce and dairy made up another large portion of my shopping list.


I found some wonderful buys to resupply the baking box in our pantry with items for holiday baking.  Sugar, baking chips and margarine are now scratched off the list.


My non-food items included cat food and litter along with a bottle of pain reliever.  I spent a total of $15.91 of my $25.00 budget.


Happily I was much closer to my $150.oo budget going over just a few dollars this time and feel I am back on track in that respect.  It feels very nice to know that our freezers and pantry are adequately stocked for winter and then some.

Stocking up on assorted pastas

Here is the list of food I bought.  The items highlighted in red are my stock up items:
