Tag Team Grocery Shopping - Meal Plans & Grocery Trip for September 26th - October 2nd

Since we are slowly getting over our colds, we didn't do any of our grocery shopping over the weekend like we normally do.  I didn't even come up with our dinner plans until Monday.  Here's the plans for dinners this week:

  1. Chicken Alfredo
  2. Spaghetti
  3. Pizza Casserole
  4. Hot Dogs
  5. Pizza
So, since we didn't have our meals planned until Monday and we're slowly recovering from our colds we only went to Wegmans.  Jon ended up going to Walmart on his way home from work.  Here's the list I had for Wegmans:
  • OJ  $4.69
  • gallon of whole milk  $3.49
  • pizza dough  $2.49
  • pepperoni  $2.49
  • potato chips  $2.00
  • Pop Tarts  $2.89
We spent $18.50 at Wegmans.  I ended up buying a larger OJ because last week we went through 3 of our regular size containers.

So, several hours later Jon went to Walmart since it was on his way home.  Here's the list that I sent him:
  • fruit gummies  $2.00
  • gold fish crackers  $2.98
  • loaf of whole wheat bread  $1.58
  • pizza blend shredded cheese  $2.48
  • can of chicken noodle soup  $0.80
  • chicken strips  $3.98
  • pizza sauce  $0.98
  • toilet paper  $11.97
  • gallon of distilled water  $0.88
Jon ended up spending a total of $29.79 at Walmart.  As always, our weekly budget was $50.  The grand total of this week's grocery trip was $48.29.  Yeah, under budget by $1.71!  I think this might have been our first week where we didn't earn anything through one of the apps on my smart phone.  I did scan the Walmart receipt to the Walmart app.
