$60.00 A Week Challenge: December 14, 2015 Weekly Food Cost

December 16, 2015


My husband does our grocery shopping.  He's become quite the bargain shopper this year!  He tells me that one of his secrets to low-cost shopping is that he goes alone.  He claims that anytime I've accompanied him, the cost goes up considerably.  This is true.  Since I don't shop much anymore, when I do go with I tend to look around for items not on the list that we "need".  Our grocery budget is much better off if he goes solo.........  :-)


Here's what we spent this week {another solo trip!}:

Commissary: $34.78
  • light brown sugar, celery, bananas, soda, orange juice, butter, tortilla shells, frozen seafood mix

Farmer's Market: $14.00
  • Milk, carrots, potatoes & honeynut squash
  • {we also bartered for chocolate treats with products}

Grand Total = $48.78

For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 13, 2018


If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year.
