My Grocery Budget 2017 - June Update


Whooo hoooo!  Came in under budget and the fridge is crammed to the gills with good healthy food.  I am super happy about that.

All sales items plus $5 OFF $25 Purchase coupon

I had another  pretty great month grocery wise.  One again I kept to mostly sales items, stocked up on a few things and kept us well supplied with fresh produce.  I shopped at Trader Joes, Albertson's and Fred Meyer.  I checked ads, downloaded a lot of digital coupons to my Albertson's and Fred Meyer rewards cards and even printed off a few from Coupons.com.  Two of those digital coupons was for Albertson's and gave me $5 OFF $25 purchase.  I have another one to use too!  How about that?

Trader Joes

I got quite a few items on markdown and was fortunate enough to get a lot of my produce this way as well as to stock up the freezer with bread for sandwiches, hamburger and hot dog buns.




This month I fired off an Amazon Pantry order to stock up on household cleaners and some toiletry items.  Additionly, I bought a 20 pound bag of cat litter and stocked up on toilet paper on sale for 2.99 for twelve double rolls.  Talk about a loss leader!  Total spent $26.55, over by $1.55 but I more than made up for it in the grocery department.

Everything here was on sale and another $5 OFF $25 Purchase coupon
Stocked up on pasta, barbeque sauce, icecream and yogurt

Here is my list.  The items highlighted in red are my stock up items:

  1. You really know how to shop!! I try to shop loss leaders and try to never pay full price for anything! You've got a lot of good looking food there!

    1. Thank you! I got tons of produce this month. I was thrilled. I stuffed those portabellos for supper last night. So good!

  2. Good job. We had a Winco move in here and it has forced Albertsons to really sharpen their pencils. Still only buy loss leaders at Albertsons.

    1. Me too, just the markdowns and loss leaders from them. Their produce is really high so I rarely buy it unless it happens to be a loss leader too. Enjoy Winco! Love their bulk department, especially for spices.

  3. Let's see...
    6-packs of mini candy bars (Baby Ruth and Butterfinger) -- except these have 8 bars, instead of 6. Normally $1.99, but priced half-off in the Safeway clearance bin. When I paid for them, another 49 cents came off -- leaving a total of 51 cents per package!
    So that made it 6 1/2 cents per bar. (These are perfect for traveling, camping and hunting.)
    Yes, I went back and purchased a LOT more.

Your kind comments are always appreciated. I love hearing from you.
