Shopping Trip This Week


This week has been CRAZY! I have been to the store on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (today). I ran out of everything! 


Monday - I went to Walmart to get things for Nathan's lunches. He was getting a little tired of eating PB&J Sandwiches. And all we were eating for dinner was spaghetti and pizza. lol I have been in the mood for those things. ($17)


Friday - Nathan and I went out for dinner and then wanted coffee. After driving around for a little while we decided that we could just make some at home except I needed some creamer. We headed to Walmart to get some plus a few more items - light bulbs, iced coffee, brown sugar, and I can't really think of what else. 


Saturday: Stopped in at Aldi to pick up some canola oil, olive oil, pasta, and parm cheese. I didn't think we needed anything else. ($12)


Last night, Nathan took Hailey to PM Pediatrics because she was sick. I looked around in the cupboards to see what I could make for dinner and found nothing. I had a lot of vegetables and frozen beef but nothing that I could make a quick meal with. We ate Krystal instead - Nathan didn't come home until almost 10 pm. (For breakfast, we went out to Wally's. I was out of bread and had no syrup. And we had no Hailey until the afternoon. :D) 


That brings me to today! I was looking to see what I could make for lunch and realized that we were out of a lot of our everyday foods. I ended up making eggs and bacon...still no toast. haha


Sunday - I went to 3 different stores: Sam's Club, Aldi and Walmart. The picture is from all three stores. Here is a breakdown of what I purchased: 


Sam's Club


- Chicken Breasts $10.62

Total Spent: $14.87 plus tax 


I was going to buy milk at Sam's Club but the expiration date was way too early so I thought I would go to Aldi it was worse than Sam's. So I ended up at Walmart. 




So total for the month spent: $150 - It is gonna be crazy but I have lots of meals up my sleeve! I will share what we will be eating tomorrow!
