Weekly Grocery Spending April 26-May 2

We didn't buy a whole lot of groceries this week.  We went to the commissary last weekend, but it was on our way to see Jurassic Park in 3D, so we didn't buy anything that needed refrigeration or freezing.  It was almost exclusively lunchbox stuff that we ended up buying.  Things like individual applesauce and mandarin orange cups, along with juice boxes, bread, and tortillas.  We also bought a few things in the produce department that we knew would be ok in the car for a while (cucumbers, oranges, and apples).  We spent $44.21.  Yeah, we bought a lot of individual containers of fruit, because it was on sale, and for some reason I can't convince my husband to take regular oranges or apples in his lunchbox, so he takes at least 2 of the little containers of fruit everyday.

We also went to Walmart over the weekend for yogurt and more fresh food.  We went there after we watched the movie, so we could get things that we wouldn't want to leave in the car for a long time, like berries.  We also got bananas, mushrooms, and kiwi. We also ended up with some frozen food.  We spent a total of $38.92.

My husband went to the commissary for milk one day this week.  I'm not sure what else he ended up buying, but it was cheap, as our total was only $4.32.

 Our weekly total this week was $87.45.

Our weekly budget is $100 per week for our family of three adults, one child, two dogs, and a cat.

Our total spent on groceries for 2013 so far is $1483.10.  

We are 17.5 weeks into the year, and our budget is $100 per week, so we are currently  $266.90 under our budget for the year.

My husband won't take fresh fruit either, but he wants a fruit cup or applesauce packed every day.

Ah well, if that's all it takes to make them happy w/lunch, so be it. :)

We went 3 weeks with just buying the minimal. This week was brutal though trying to restock the pantry. Nice to see you are still under budget!
