Grocery Trip

I went to Darrenkamps last Thursday night for some last minute birthday ingredients. I didn't have time to take a picture, but I spent $24.01 for the following (total before card savings...$40.58, I didn't use any coupons):

1 whole chicken (on sale at $.79 lb)
1 block of cream cheese
1 loaf of whole wheat bread
5 lb bag of sugar
2-2 lb bags of 10x sugar
6 blocks of cheese (1 lb each)
1 gallon of skim milk

I did OK given that I couldn't use any coupons for any of the items I purchased. I wish I could have gotten a few more chickens, but being already over budget, I didn't want to spend the money since we have plenty of meat in our freezer already.

So here is the run down for this month (remember, my budget is $40 a week):

Week 1: $44.55
Week 2: $41.28
Week 3: $24.01

3 week total: $109.84 ($10.16 under budget)

I have $50.16 for the rest of the month!
