First Big Food Shopping Trip of 2014
Wednesday, January 08, 2014
I've gotten little bit of food here and there. I mostly buy from work, I'll admit though the pharmacy retail store is limited on healthy food options (though 2 for 2.50 -.50 coupon on progresso soup wasn't too bad). But today I did my first big shop from Fred Meyer.
clearance preseasoned chicken breast = 3.06
jenny-o turkey ground package = 3.69 (minus 1.00 coupon)
ground beef package = 3.66
frozen green beans = .79
fresh sliced mushrooms = 1.99
fresh red onion .40
Bread and such
pillsbury crescants (2) = 2.19(x2) (minus 40 cent coupon off two)
pillsbury biscuit (2) = 1.00(x2) (minus 30 cent coupon off two)
barilla veggie pasta (2) = 1.00(x2) (minus 1.00 off two)
Soups and such
cream of mushroom = .89
Dairy and such
shredded pepper cheese = 1.99
shredded cheddar cheese = 1.99
sliced provolone = 1.99
quaker oatmeal cups (2) = 1.79(x2) (minus 1.00 off two)
Atkins snack bars (2) = 10.00 for 2 (minus 1.55 from coupons)
Total spent was 37.63
Not bad. True about 1/4th of that is on the atkins bars that I'm trying, but I feel they will be a better after work choice at night than the sour patch kids sitting on the counter. 5 bars per box it equals not a bad price overall, though real food is indeed better than the diet meal replacements.
Now to get cooking so I have stuff to eat before work and such the next week.
