March Groceries: Week 1

Another light shopping week here, well under budget. I am quite serious about reducing some of our stash of items. I deliberately did not shop very good Catalina deals this week because I don't have anywhere to put it all. Also, frankly, I haven't been feeling well for awhile and expect to continue feeling poorly for a while longer, which makes grocery shopping and cooking less appealing. For dinners, we ate pizza, rice and sausage skillet, and meatloaf.

Target:
Quaker instant oatmeal, French toast bagels, coffee creamer (free coupon), vitamins, small wastebasket
Total: $10.10
Savings: $4.44

Aldi:
frozen fried chicken, dozen eggs, tater tots, string cheese, 16 oz steel cut oats ($1.79!), 2 lb carrots, can of water chestnuts, box of instant vanilla pudding, 3 lb bananas, bag of cosmic potato snacks, 5 lb red potatoes, 2 gallons of milk, 2 boxes cornbread crackers, yellow cake mix, generic Fritos, barbecue potato chips
Total: $29.68

Week 1 Total: $39.78
Week 1 Savings: $4.44
