I did not take photos of the groceries this week but I did buy another flat of blueberries for 99 cents a pint. We are eating some and freezing some for later because that is a price I just can’t pass up. Click here to see How to Freeze Blueberries.
I also found great deals on cantaloupe (99 cents each), ground beef ($2.99/pound) and boneless skinless chicken breasts ($1.98/lb). Purchasing the ground beef put me over budget for this week but it will go into the freezer and be used for meals for the next couple of weeks so hopefully that help me stay on track the next few weeks.
Weekly Total: $142.42
July Monthly Total: $142.42
