Menu and Grocery Spending

I do actually have more than pictures this week! 🙂 They are up first, though.


Produce from a grocery trip.

And everything else:

Groceries arranged on the floor.

Well, everything else except for my two jars of milk, my blueberries, and the butter I stocked up on (see below).

I have a fairly complicated grocery report. First, I spent $6 on milk from the farm. Then I stopped at a local store to buy some butter (it was on sale for $1.66/pound), and spent $13.19 there.

On Thursday, I got 20 pounds of blueberries from New Jersey, and spent $28.

A huge box of blueberries.

So, before I even left for my regular trip, I’d already spent $47.19 of my $100 budget.

That left me with only about $53 to spend. I spent $39.74 at Aldi, and $13.03 at Weis. Happily, that put me right at $99.96, $.04 under budget! 😉

We’ll be eating our usual breakfasts (granola, toast, fruit, and some cereal) and lunches (leftovers, bread, fruit and yogurt smoothies), and here’s what we’re having for our dinners:


  • Cajun Chicken Strips
  • Mediterranean Vegetable Salad (I do realize that’s a weird side for Cajun Chicken!)
  • Cheese Bagels


  • We’ll be at a friend’s house for a cookout, and I’m supposed to bring fruit. I will probably bring a watermelon.


  • Chicken Salsa Skillet
  • Zucchini patties


  • Shrimp Salad
  • Fruit Salad
  • English Muffin bread


  • Mexican Chicken Sandwiches
  • Balsamic Vegetable Salad


  • Grilled Hamburgers
  • raw veggies
  • fresh fruit
  • probably some potato chips

Kristen : Haha! If you saw our stuffed animal bin, you would start to think that I DID buy a bunch every week.

Funny, I was going to ask about this very topic. Clean stuffed animals are always in demand.
