Weekly Grocery Hunt

Well, I hit the grocery stores to stock up this week. My usual haunts are a bakery discount store for breads, a grocery outlet, and Win-co. Here’s what I ended up with…

Dishwasher detergent 2.49
Chocolate Bar .79
Grape jelly .99
Hot dogs .99
Celery .99
2 lbs of bacon 3.38
Bleach 1.29
Frozen raspberries 1.99
2lbs of grated fat free cheddar cheese 3.98
3.3 lbs of bananas 1.48
Deodorant 2.98
1 lb whole bean coffee 5.26
1 pint whipping cream 3.28
Stove top stuffing .88
18 large eggs 2.96
Fels Naptha soap for homemade laundry det. 1.12
2.25 lbs chocolate chips in bulk 4.41
2.5 lbs of bulk oatmeal 1.17
1lb bulk raisins 1.48
Ketchup .77
1.25 lbs of tomatoes 1.15
1.5 lbs of mandarin oranges 1.92
2.75 lbs of apples 2.66
.75 lbs of bulk dried apricots 1.40
12 bagels 1.59
3 loaves of buttermilk bread 2.67
Raspberry preserves 1.99
Cake mix .99
Frozen french fries .99

Total $58.04

Totally pleased that I kept it in the $50’s range. I’ll be combining this with what’s in the freezer, fridge and cupboards already to make breakfasts…

Baked french toast
Muffins & fruit
Bacon, egg & cheese breakfast bake
Poached eggs and toast


Baked potato bar
Thanksgiving Casserole
Crockpot Chicken stew with peasant bread
Soup made with leftover meat/veggies and fresh bread
Hot dogs and fries
Pork roast
Leftover nights

And all that planning hurt my head so much that I couldn’t come up with lunches so I’ll be winging it.

Here's a recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent if you want to try adding that into your cost savings:

I haven't tried it yet, but there are some other discussions out there of ways to tweak it:

Thanks for the inspiration!
