Weekly Grocery spending January 10, 2013

I obviously missed the first Thursday of the month when it comes to tracking my grocery spending.  That's ok, though.  We didn't buy any groceries during the first three days of the month.  My husband made his first grocery run of the year this week, and bought produce, bread, juice, water, and a few things for his lunches at work.  He spent $17.40.  He didn't use any coupons, and our receipts don't calculate what we saved by buying sales items, so I'm going with a $17.40 total for $17.40 in stuff, so a 0% savings.

Our goal is under $100 each week for a family of 3 adults, one child, 2 dogs (one is a senior and on a more expensive food, along with special vitamins), and a cat.

2013 grocery spending: $17.40

I am sure that the pet food adds a lot to your budget on a monthly basis, I cannot imagine having to feed two big dogs as well.

One of my dogs is actually pretty small (20 lbs), but she is the one that is about 10 years old, and is on a more expensive food and special vitamins as well. We probably still spend less on her food and vitamins than we do on Snoopie's, though, since Snoopie is 60 lbs, and super active all the time. The cat ends up costing quite a lot, too, since her food is much more expensive per pound than the dogs', plus she has litter that has to be changed regularly.
