The Stuffed Animal Grocery Picture(also a menu)


I spent $52.60 at Aldi, which I was fairly pleased with. That left me with a little less than $30 to spend at Weis, and I would have been nearly fine with that, but I succumbed to the temptation to buy fresh cherries. They were $3.99 a pound (on sale, even!), and I bought a two pound bag. So I ended up spending $40.68 there, which puts my total at $93.28.

I really wanted to spend more than that because my favorite Tyson chicken breasts were on sale for $1.49 a pound, but I resisted, and only bought one pack. I think I might go grocery shopping a day early next week so that I can pick up a few more packages. $1.49 is a great price to begin with, and the fact that it’s really good chicken sweetens the deal considerably.

Well, since you said an animal-less grocery picture was sucking the joy out of your life, it was the least I could do. lol

I was actually really busy last week and haven't been reading my sites as much. Thanks for noticing me as old Eeyore would say. ;)

Susan, Joshua says he's in front of the root beer(apparently, he blends in very well there! lol).

Linda, I do find that I tend to just keep buying too much food if I allow myself to spend more than $80-$100 a week. After thinking about it, though, I've decided that $1.49/pound is a really, really good price, and one way or another I will spend a fair portion of next week's grocery money on that chicken(it's on sale through Wednesday).

Battra, did you see I gave you a holler in the title of last week's grocery post? ;)
