LAST week's meal plan: I stuck to my plan last week. And we even got to visit goats again, in the evening- but I didn't let those amazing little animals deter my plan this time!
This week's grocery spending notes (Oct 4- Oct 10): Costco:
I had a rare return. I had bought sheets a last month, which after a few weeks of use/wash, stretched out so fast that they didn't stay on the bed. I normally wouldn't return a used item, but these were awful. I received a 31.99 refund, which I put towards my bill. I added flour (25lbs, 7.39) to my pantry and sugar (10 lbs, 6.29) on this trip. I always aim to keep all my staples stocked up.
Total: 60.28 - 31.99 = 28.29
This week my rebate for Fred Meyers came in the mail! Must be the month for rebates. I received a 32.00 rebate. I bought almost all produce at Fred Meyer, plus some bread and chicken. My total after the rebate was 33.45.
This week's numbers: This week Costco: 28.29 This week Fred Meyer: 33.45 This week total: 61.74
This month so far:
Week 1: 61.74
Week 2: TBD
