If you were concerned about my super low total last week, you will be happy to know that I had to make a mid-week run for some essentials. I paid $35.01 for the above groceries from Walmart. That brought last week’s total to $69.00, so I’ve added that to the monthly total below.
WALMART Part 1
Grocery Saving Tip: Buy meat at it’s lowest price and freeze it for later. I used Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee to purchase boneless skinless chicken breasts for $.99 a pound which is an insanely low price for our area.
When you find meat or other grocery items at their lowest price for your area, it’s a good idea to buy as much as you can afford for future use. I would have purchased more, but I was over-budget with everything else we needed.
If you find a good deal on chicken, you can use my 8 Dinners in One Hour Plan here to quickly and easily turn that chicken into meals for your family!
WALMART–Total Spent $130.82.
Grocery Saving Tip: Use Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee. I was not only able to get the chicken for $.99/lb, but I also ad matched:
ground chuck for $2.59/lb
cantaloupe for $.99
8 lbs of California navel oranges for $4.99
milk for $2.59/gallon,
V8 Fusion for $2.00
Lay’s chips for $2.48 a bag. It’s cheaper to buy the Walmart brand of chips, but Lays are our favorite so when they go on sale, I purchase them (and I do not agree that store brand chips taste the same :)).
Weekly Total: $129.46
Monthly Total: $198.46
