PRODUCE MARKET-Spent $43.69.

Grocery Saving Tip: Check local produce stands and ethnic markets. They often have much lower prices on certain items than chain stores.

I was able to purchase:

Red Bell Peppers $.50 each

Haas Avocados $.50 each

Cucumbers $.45 each

Pint Grape Tomatoes $1.49

Pint Cherry Tomatoes $1.49

5 lbs. Idaho potatoes $1.49 each

Pork Shoulder Picnic $.99/lb

Ground Beef $2.39/lb (good price for our area)

Large Honey Dew Melon $1.39

16 oz. Strawberries $1.50

PUBLIX-Spent $16.49.  

Grocery Saving Tip: When an item is on sale at its lowest price, buy as much as you can afford and use before it expires. I was able to get the Frosted Mini Wheats for just $2.20 a box. I could have purchased more, but I wanted to stay under budget this week to make room for take out pizza.


SAVE A LOT–Spent $36.20.

Grocery Saving Tip: Purchase staples at one low-cost store. I purchased 1 pound of butter for $2.49 (reg. price $2.99 and up), eggs for $1.75 a dozen (reg. price $2.75 and up), milk for $3.09 a gallon (reg. $3.69 and up), and wheat bread for $1.29 (reg. $2.59 and up). The other items you see here are all priced lower than similar items at Walmart and other stores in my area.  

Weekly Total: $96.38

February Monthly Total: $219.29  

($125/week budget for six people)

    Good job coming in so far under budget! I’ve been doing good on my meal planning but bad on my shopping trips(too many impulse buys) but I have to say that today I wrote down prices as I bought everything and actually stuck to my list(mainly veggies and other perishables) and in doing that I didn’t go over!! yay! Your menu and grocery trip posts really motivate me to try to stay on budget and I really needed a kick in the pants to get back on track! Thanks for the motivation!

    I love seeing all the fresh fruits and veggies you buy for your family! People always say its impossible to eat healthy on a budget but I think you have proven them wrong. I dont have as many mouths to feed as you do but I am spending so much less than I used to (about 80 a week) by meal planning alone. I still buy plenty of fresh fruits and veggies for my family. Thanks for your inspiration!!
