I failed to write down what we ate last week. I’m sure there were chicken nuggets and pancakes and pizza. I know we had chili on Sunday night. Beyond that its a bit of a blur, which is also part of why this is the first post in eight days!
But, I did go to the grocery store. I largely took pictures. And I have the receipts to remind me of where I went when.
I had a small gift card to a local craft/gift store so on Monday I spent $10.80 (out of pocket, after gift card) there on some fancy cocoa and jam. I would have been happy to buy earrings or pottery or any number of other things, but nothing really jumped out and fancy food is always nice.
I then spent $176.80 at BJ’s on Wednesday. There is obviously some restocking here, but I also had a reasonable number of coupons.
On Friday I spent $115.62 at Wegman’s. My primary purpose was to buy ground beef and a jalapeno for the chili, but I hoped to get enough shopping done to not have to go there again soon. (You’ll see Stop & Shop in a moment because I needed a few things Wegman’s does not carry.) We ate a lot of eggs over the holiday weekend.
Finally, on Sunday I made a small trip to Stop & Shop. The boys wanted sausages with their eggs Monday morning. I would normally get these at BJ’s, but that’s rather far away. So, I made a short trip and also picked up the hot dogs they had requested and a couple of other items I can only get at Stop & Shop. This total was $23.43.
That brought my total for the week to $326.65, not bad for a week with a BJ’s trip.
