$50 Grocery Challenge - Spent $49.39

It has been a busy morning. I got a lot of things for the pantry this week, but felt like I got more for my money than last week. I wasn't sure I wanted to go to Smith's again, after last week, but I am glad I did. When I checked out, I asked the lady not to make the bags too heavy since last week they put way too much in the bags and one busted and went all over the parking lot. She asked if any groceries were ruined, and I told here there were three things. She let me replace them for free today. I was pleasantly surprised because I wasn't expecting that to happen. I didn't include those in the picture.


Chicken 2.94
Chicken 2.40
Organic Bananas 2.10
Cauliflower 62 cents
9 Red Grapefruit 2.97
Tomatoes on the Vine 82 cents

Total at Rosauer's 11.85

Town and Country

Farm eggs 2.99
Sunflower seeds in bulk 58 cents
Tiny Purple Potatoes 2.49
Avacado 99 cents
Lemon 50 cents
Green leaf lettuce 99 cents

Total at Town and Country 8.54


3 Cranberry juices 1.99 each
5 cans Beef Broth 49 cents each
10 cans Chicken Broth 49 cents each
5 cans Cream of Mushroom 49 cents
10 cans Cream of Chicken 49 cents each
7 cans corn 49 cents each
10 cans french style green beans 49 cents each

Total at Smith's 29.00

I started some dough for some rolls and let it rise while I went shopping. It is a new recipe and if it turns out, I will post the link and a picture. My teenage daughter loves bread, and will be very excited to try these. It is a heavier dough, but rose beautifully.

  1. It is so great that you can spend as little as you do and still get lots of fresh produce and meats!
