First, the update on February’s grocery spending.  It was excellent.  Now, I must attribute some of that to the snow.  While I did generally get to the store once a week, it was hit or miss.  We didn’t get out of the house as much as usual which meant we were eating through what we had.

  • February TOTAL: $680.50
    • Stop & Shop: $167.01
    • BJs: $229.59
    • Other: $283.90
      • Local: $66.21*
      • Wegman’s: $118.67
      • Star Market: $85.28
      • Trader Joe’s: $6.57
      • Target: $7.17

*Usually, local means local food.  In this case it means sold by a local business (and elementary school fundraiser) since, well, its winter and there isn’t much food growing around here right now.

While we’re still getting snow on what seems like a daily basis, the volumes are much less so things are returning somewhat to normal.  At some point I’ll have to restock our groceries, but I’m not in a rush.  Here’s what I did get at BJ’s last week.  Note that the meat is all for this week so there really isn’t anything I would call stocking up here.
