Staying way under budget - Meal Plans and Grocery Trip March 13th - 19th

meal plans, grocery shopping on a budget, $50 weekly grocery budget,
I know this is a little late on writing about, but thought that I should write this before writing about our grocery shopping this past weekend.  The dinners that were planned are as follows:

  1. Pot Roast
  2. BBQ Chicken
  3. Hamburgers
I actually didn't get around to doing our grocery shopping until that Tuesday while Michael was in school.  Because of having a limited amount of time to go shopping, I kept it to one store and that was Wegmans.  Here's the list and prices:
  • OJ  $2.49
  • beef broth  $1.69
  • 2L Sprite  $1.50
  • roast  $10.84
  • organic carrots  $0.80
  • potatoes  $1.03
  • onion  $0.33
Basically it was everything that we needed for our St. Patrick's Day dinner.  We already had everything for the other dinners.  Our budget for this week was $58.49 because of our carry over from the week before.  I spent a total of $19.15 which made us under budget by $39.34.  This really helped us out this past weekend.
