Meal Planning for March 28th - April 3rd

Since Jon and Michael are heading to Jon's grandparents tonight we had to get all of our weekly grocery shopping done before they left.  After doing our weekly bills, our budget for this week was $70.  Here's the meal plan for the week:

  1. Chicken Nuggets (already have all the ingredients)
  2. Hot Dogs (carry over)
  3. Hamburger Helper (already had the box, just needed the meat)
  4. Pizza Casserole

So, we didn't really need a whole lot of food items, but did need somethings for Michael and household items.  As always, we went to our two stores (Walmart and Wegmans).  We did most of the shopping at Walmart and also had four coupons which saved us a total of $3.30.  Every little bit of savings help.
The total amount for Walmart was $35.37.  Here's the Walmart shopping list along with the prices of each item:
  • loaf of bread  $1.48
  • cranapple juice  $3.98
  • recycle bags  $6.97
  • baby wipes  $10.97
  • Kraft mac-n-cheese 5 pack  $4.50
  • sugar  $2.38
  • garlic bread  $2.42
  • bath wash  $4.27

The total amount for Wegmans was $23.42.  Here's the shopping list along with the prices of each item:
  • hamburger meat 2 1lb packages  $4.16 and $4.16
  • spaghetti noodles on sale for  $0.69
  • elbow macaroni noodles  $0.99
  • pepperoni  $2.29
  • spaghetti sauce  $1.99
  • shredded mozzarella cheese  $2.49
  • gallon of whole milk  $3.59
  • OJ  $2.49

That makes the total of our shopping trip today being $58.99.  Leaving $11.01 to spare!  Yay, mommy can go out to eat while the boys are gone. :) If you like what you just read please click to send a quick vote for me on Top Mommy Blogs- The best mommy blog directory featuring top mom bloggers
