I am back on track with meal planning and so I needed to make a big trip to get some groceries! I went to three stores and completely blew my budget of $50 a week. But after you see what I got, you’ll understand that it won’t all be used this week. So I am justifying my purchases with this!

Lowe’s Foods

2 Kaiser Rolls 6 count $4.48 (should have been $2.99, but the girl put in the barcode for one package so it didn’t ring up half price like the other)

1 Lowe’s Foods frozen corn 2 lbs. $2.50

1 Lowe’s Foods chocolate chip cookies $2.00

2 Jello instant pudding mixes $2.00

I went to Sam’s Club to get some meats, and ended up with a few other things. But I did think things over before purchasing to make sure I thought they were cheaper than at the grocery store with coupons. And to my knowledge they were! But as far as the meat, I am still no good with meat prices and my freezer was bare! It was time to stock up for a few meals!

Alexia Sweet Potato Fries 64 oz. $6.98 (a bag 1/3 the size costs almost $4.50 at Harris Teeter. I figured no coupoon was beating this price. Averages out to $1.75 lb.)

5 lb. bag Russet Potatoes $2.98 ($.60 lb.)

Tropicana OJ HUGE $4.98

Boneless Pork Chops 5 lb. $10.63 ($2.13 lb.)

Crystal Light Lemonade Mix $7.34

Garden Salad Mix 1 lb. $2.77

Bananas 1 lb. $1.32

Ground Turkey 5 lbs. $9.82 ($1.96 lb.)

Sugar Free Popsicles 30 ct. $4.41 ($.15 each!)

Total: $52.25 with tax
