November was a great month budget-wise, especially since we had the Thanksgiving feast to account for.  I was at Stop & Shop more often than Wegman’s, but the totals ended up very similar.  The big local number was primarily the turkey purchase, although I also bought fresh fish while I was there for dinner before Thanksgiving.

  • November TOTAL: $876.10
    • Stop & Shop: $241.58
    • Wegman’s: $265.65
    • BJs: $110.25
    • Other: $258.62
      • Local: $194.90
      • Star Market: $43.80
      • Trader Joe’s: $19.92
      • Target: $0
      • Other: $0

As for this week’s shopping, I only made two trips to Stop and Shop.

The first trip was Monday.  One of the boys wants ham every day for lunch so I do have to get that weekly.  The chocolates were free; the Finlandia butter was 99¢ as I used both manufacturer’s and store coupons.  The chives and ham were the only items not on sale.

My second trip was on Saturday.  Fewer of these items were on sale – Doritos, chicken, ground turkey, gravy, and juice.  The other items flesh out things I did purchase earlier on sale that we’ll be eating this week – hot dogs and ground pork.  Beyond the obligatory ham purchase, I got some salami.
