Grocery Haul for the week of March 5th thru 11th

grocery shopping breakdown, grocery shopping on a budget, grocery shopping with a $100 weekly budget, grocery haul breakdown,
It has been a while since I have written a post about our weekly grocery shopping.  Since it looks like people are still interested in them, I thought I would bring it back.  So, here we go with what was purchased for this week.

Another reason I wanted to bring the grocery shopping breakdown back is because in order to focus on frugality on this blog, we need to actually live it.  This year we've been going through some major cuts with how we spend our money.  We're focusing more on eating at home in order to save money.  In order to be able to do that, we needed to increase our $50 a week grocery budget to $100 a week.  Lately I've been shopping at Wal-mart, Sam's Club, and Wegmans.  Almost all of the items used for Michael's lunches are purchased as Sam's because when it's all broken down, it truly is cheaper to buy in bulk.

This week, I actually only had $83 to work with because I had already used some of the budget to buy a cookie cake to celebrate Michael's graduation in his karate class.  Here's the breakdown of what was purchased, at which store, and the cost.

Grocery Haul breakdown for March 5th - 11th, 2018

Stuffers lasagna $6.98 8" tortilla shells $2.49

Walmart Total = $15.87 Sam's Club Total = $25.28 Wegmans Total = $32.98

The grand total spent at all three stores was $74.13.  Leaving $8.87 remaining, which is good because we are making French bread pizza later in the week.  We'll need to buy the loaves closer to the day we're making the pizza so they don't go bad.  What ever is remaining from the purchase of the bread will be rolled over into next week's grocery budget.



  1. After living on $50 a week for YEARS we had to bump up to $80. The price of groceries have increased and you just don't get as much for $50 as you used to. Even at Aldi. I actually used the Kroger pick up here this week, and I was surprised to discover that is was no more expensive than if I would have gone to Aldi!?! WHAT!?! You should do a Meal Plan Monday (it's becoming a thing) image on your blog and IG. People really engage on those!
