$50 Grocery Challenge - Spent $23.82 so far....

It snowed yesterday and the people who bought the furniture from me took a little bit longer to get here, so I didn't get my shopping posted yesterday. Sorry for the inconvenience! I only spent about half of the money I will spend this week so far. We have a new Safeway store opening up tomorrow and some of their best sales are Saturday only. So, I will spend the rest of the money on Saturday.


Oranges 1.46
Tomatoes 70 cents
Avocados Three at 69 cents each
Garlic 30 cents
Tilamook sour cream 1.79
Organic Buttermilk 2.69
Bananas 85 cents
Cinnamon 1.53
Lemons Two at 50 cents each
Local Farm Eggs 2.99
20 pounds of potatoes 2.49 (Best deal of the day!)
Grapefruit Four at 44 cents each
Cornmeal in bulk 59 cents
Tilamook Yogurt Six at 60 cents each

Total $23.82

How was your shopping this week? Did you stay in your budget? Did you get some good deals? Link up and share or comment.


  1. I do not have a post this week. I have had a tough week. I spent $91.00. I have to say You should be extremely proud of yourself for you are very wise with every penny every week! Wow so much encouragement and so very wise!

  2. I take a few weeks off my $50 grocery budget every year. As long as I am good most of the time, it is fine to have a few weeks where you can take a break. I am sorry to hear that you have had a tough week. Just make it through the best you can and try again next week. Good luck!
