Grocery Budget 11/8-11/14

You have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see my stellar find of the week, so just be patient, and bear with me.  (I knew you would...at least I think you will... pwwweeeezzz?)



The usual Sunday night run...$3.73.  I haven't figured out yet why I never seem to have crackers on Sunday night.  If you look carefully at the boxes, though, you will see that they have the $10 toy rebate advertised on them.  That means I only have to buy 3 more specially marked cookies or crackers to get  a $10 rebate on the toy of my choice.  Go here to get the rebate form.  I also got 4 cookie cutters (2 pumpkins and 2 moons) for $.17 each.  Thought they might make a nice little gift.




Giant Eagle had a great catalina deal on Land O' Lake butter and Philly cream cheese, plus the egg and cake pan deal is still live, at least till the end of November.  I had to get a raincheck for the cake pan, as they were out of them when I made these purchases.  I also bought 2 Sunday newspapers during this trip, but I forgot to take a picture of them.  This trip cost me $13.61.



This trip cost me $40.88, but I am only counting $28.92 from the grocery budget, as the candles will be gifts.
Here's some close-ups of this trip.





I'm too tired to give you the breakdown because it is after midnight.  Grace has a virus of some type, and I am trying to keep an eye on her temperature which skyrocketed to over 102 degrees, so that's why I'm posting at this ungodly hour.  The only deal I'll highlight is that I did score 85% lean ground beef for just $1.67/lb. with a reduced to sell sticker!  I love getting meat on sale.



This cost me $3, and I got a $2 catalina in addition.



This was my Rite Aid trip which cost me $14.20, of which $13.51 was for the digital photo frame.  I also spent $21.70 on a Philips 5.6" digital photo frame (they were both on 75% clearance), but I failed to take a picture.  (hardy, har, har - no pun intended!)  I was totally pumped about the photo frames, as Amazon is selling the Philips for $79.99!  I would imagine this deal is available until they are all gone, so it wouldn't hurt to check next time you are there.  Of that which I spent, I am only counting $.70 from my grocery budget, as the photo frames will be gifts.

Ben also made a short run for me Thursday, and he spent $8.87, but I didn't get a picture of the trip.

Of the money spent this week, $58.83 was from my grocery budget.  Not a stellar week by any means. There's always next week....

Good job! And I pray for Grace's health our own g-grandd was sick with type A flu just a week ago. We thought she had a relapse, but now think that temperature was due to teething. Hard to tell. Wish you were next door so I could borrow some cream cheese for a bagel breakfast this morning!

It looks like you got a super deal at Giant Eagle! I know just the butter alone is quite expensive! I wish we had a Giant Eagle down here!! :) It is so hard for me to stay in my budget when I see an awesome deal! I always tell myself that I can go over my budget this week and get it at a good price or pay double for it the next week! I'm really trying to be more disciplined!!! ;)
