50 Dollar Grocery Challenge - Week of March 18-25 Spent $20.35 total

Today started out with 8-12 inches of snow.  But, I was able to go later in the day when it finally stopped.  I wasn't very careful and didn't have a detailed shopping list.  But, I didn't need as much this week since we went over budget last week and splurged during spring break. It is nice to take a week off here and there just for a change.  I had everything set out for a perfect picture and then I couldn't find the camera.  One of my teenagers must have used it and who knows where it is now.  Prices below are after coupons.

I spent a total of $20.35 between two stores and got the following:

1.99    Organic chocolate milk - half gallon
  .99    Kraft dressing - thousand island
1.98    2. containers of Miracle whip light
  .99    Mission Tortillas 10 pk.
3.18    (2) Classico Spaghetti Sauce w/ Italian sausage
1.24    Ground beef
Free    (12) packages of Rozoni pasta plus 12 cents overage
  .16    (4) Powerades at 4 cents each
  .99    Whooly Salsa - this stuff is really good!
   .94    Danimals Crush Cups
2.82     (3) Danimals 6 pack Strawberry yogurt shakes
3.99     Organic beef
  .70     (2) packages of Apples w/carmel to dip with
1.20     (6) Organic Potatoes marked down to 20 cents each

I probably should have just stayed home and not gone shopping!  I do have plenty of produce from last week to make it through until this Friday when I do my regular shopping post.  I plan to go back to careful planning with a detailed list again.  It was nice to have a week off though!

How was your shopping this week?  Link up and share!

  1. Wow! That's so impressive! I sometimes have a hard time feeding just myself for $20 a week.
