Publix A 2013-08-02

PUBLIX Part A 

With everything going on right now (read more here), I just could not handle going to Walmart this week. I shopped at Publix and took advantage of their BOGO items (everything you see two of) which, along with making a complete meal plan for the week, helped me keep my overall costs lower.

Publix Produce 2013-08-02

PUBLIX Produce–Total Spent $90.02 (both photos)

I was not able to purchase as much produce as I normally do because I shopped at a higher price store.

 

Winn Dixie Meat 2013-08-02

Winn Dixie–Spent $42.45.

I took advantage of some super sale prices on meat. One of the roasts will go in the freezer for later, and we will use the remaining meat this week.

Weekly Total: $132.47

August Monthly Total: $132.47    

($125/week budget for six people, so I am $7.47 over for this week.)

I’ve gotten away from recording my weekly spending, but I’m working on getting back to it! I’m inspired by your weekly check-in to work harder in this area. Here’s my budget so far: http://theeconomicalhomemaker.com/grocery-budget-challenge-june-and-july-totals-are-here/

I know Tanya! It is so easy to let the spending creep up without noticing it.

I have a separate checking account (formerly ING now Capital One) where I only deposit the amount I have set in my budget. That’s my grocery debit card. To go over budget, I would have to physically log in and go through several steps to make another deposit.

It’s very effective in keeping me to a budget.
