Thanks we actually go past 125th and Lake City Way all the time. I take the back way to Childern's. We go at least once a month.

I love Whole Foods. But why oh why does everything have to be so $$$ there?

November Total: $92.06
post #69 of 123
Bought some eggs, milk, bread, and other various junk for ~$17 Sat. Previous total was 137.53 + 17 = 154.53. I'm going shopping again this evening for turkey (for THanksgiving), as soon as dh gets home from work.

Think that's all I need to buy, but I have to check my fridge and cabinets.

Just went shopping today(we were desperately low) and paid cash. Without the household goodies I spent a nice $48.19 in groceries. Add to that the $11.42 from before and for this month I am at just $59.61!!!!!! YAY for me!!!! And that stuff should last me to the very end!

(oh yeah, that's for a pregnant mama, a school-age child, and a toddler. the kitty cost us $10 in cat food but I dont' think he goes through an entire bag in one month. We have wic so that's an enormous help and we don't eat organic and we eat vegetarian in this house. the girls eat meat at their daddy's house. But that total is reflective of 3/4 of the month's meals because the other 1/4 the girls eat at daddy's house while I work.)

Went last night and bought our turkey on sale, woohooo. And some nyquil. 25.06 + total from before 154.53 = 179.59

I spent about $20 more (including some UHT milk for dd's lunch), so I am at $287. If I keep it under $300 as of 11.15.07 I'll be happy that I can keep this tally under my goal of $600. I usually spend more during the first part of the month.

I'm at $133.72 and hoping this is the last shopping trip before babe arrives!

Looking at my receipts it looks like $55.55 was for food products.

I know it's easier to compare if we are just talking food items, but my monthly budget includes health and beauty, cleaning, and pet food items.

I just got back and I got a huge load of dog food(20lbs dry food and 16 cans), 17lb turkey, 8lbs of ground pork sausage, celery, egg noodles, and tomatoes....for $25.00. All of the dog food was free, so the total is just for the human food.

That puts my totals at $216.53

Another $14.78 Today

Total for the month $260.53
