And this is the post where you see what happens when life gets busy at our house! I ended up in the store at 10:00 pm.  

 

WALMART Part 1

 

WALMART Part 2–Total Spent $122.91. 

Thankfully I had made the menu and grocery list, so I was able to keep to the budget. (We will spend an additional $20 for take out pizza this week.)  I could have spent a lot less if I had used Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee, but I was too tired. Planning lower cost meals for this week like grilled cheese and chicken enchiladas also helped me stick to the $125 budget.

Weekly Total: $122.91 

February Monthly Total: $122.91   

($125/week budget for six people)

    Hey Kim,
    I was just looking at my bank’s online finance tool and wanted to share my accomplishment with you :). In the last few months I have been able to get my average monthly grocery bill from $375 down to $200 (for me and my husband). I know that some couples spend even less, but I am very happy with the progress I have made. Mostly due to following your advice and planning menus based on weekly ads from 2 stores, a few coupons, and what’s already in my cabinet. I also started a price list where I track the best unit price for things like yogurt, oatmeal, produce, etc. Before this, I was just buying way too much and not being mindful of price cycles.
    Thanks for your blog!

    Does your Wal-Mart do take and bake pizzas? We have switched to this “method” rather than calling for delivery and the price difference is unreal!! And…the Wal-Mart take and bakes are actually very good quality!

      That is a great idea. My husband actually picked up the pizzas instead of paying for delivery so we saved a little. We just planned for something fun and easy after a difficult day.
