Week 18 Grocery Notes: Last week we spent $61- which leaves me with a $39 budget for groceries this week. However, if you saw last weeks post, you’ll note that our freezer is quite full of various cuts of meat.
For $34, I bought: Pkg of 3 Romaine Hearts lettuce, tomatoes on the vine, 2 green peppers, cauliflower, fresh broccoli heads, milk, Cantaloupe, 3 cukes, grapefruit, fresh whole zucchini, 5# flour, 5# sugar, 10 ears corn on the cob, coffee. Not alot of groceries for only $34- but the price of coffee has gone up & I’m not the kind of person you’d like to be around without a few mugs of coffee each day. The zucchini, cantaloupe and grapefruit are in season, making them considerably cheaper this time of year.
