Welcome to Frugal Frog Friday: Grocery Store Edition
This upcoming week I am going to take the Frugal Frog Grocery Challenge. The rule of this challenge is to make the groceries I bought yesterday last ALL week. I have a TERRIBLE habit of going to the grocery store multiple times a week. My tendency is to go to the grocery store when I am bored or stressed out. That has been happening a LOT lately.
I went to two different places to get all of the groceries for this week: Price Rite and Wegmans. I can only get the dehydrated coconut flakes (to make coconut butter!) from Wegmans. Also, Wegmans has much better bananas and fresh fruit.
Here is my Wegmans bounty:
2 packages dried coconut
2 cans of no-salt green beans
1 can no-salt chopped carrots
Unsweetened Apple Sauce
Gum (My addiction)
Pecans from the Bulk Food aisle
If you have not checked out the Bulk Food aisle at your grocery store, you are missing some serious frugal frog deals! Pecans are crazy expensive in their pre-packaged state. I saved at least 30% using the bulk bins!
From Price Rite I got LOADS of goodies:
3 GIANT sweet potatoes
3 Baking Potatoes
1 Sweet Onion
1 Zucchini squash
1 Bunch of Kale
1 dozen eggs
Loaf of wheat bread
Generic Shredded Wheat
Generic Rice Krispies
Generic Frosted Flakes
(Chase will totally go through 3 boxes in a week!)
The Grand total came to....
Total = $44.43
I promise I will confess to the blog if I break the challenge!
How much do you usually spend on groceries each week? Do you love grocery shopping or hate it?
