With the Monday holiday, I decided to push this post to Tuesday.  I expect to post Wednesday (normal Tuesday post), Thursday, and Friday this week to get back on a more regular school year posting schedule.

Last week was another big one for groceries, largely because I went to BJs for the first time in about two months.  I also stopped at Target and purchased a number of things that we use during the school year, but not during the summer.

On Thursday, I went to both Target and BJ’s as they’re fairly near one another.

First, at Target, I spent $59.28.  I didn’t get a picture before things started getting eaten (actually drunk), but it included a large number of single serve boxes of raisins & craisins, lots of grape juice, some granola bars, and some Gatorade.

Then I ran over and spent $241.07 at BJ’s.  Again, I failed to get pictures of everything – notably most of the non-perishable items this time.  There was a flat of Coke, a rotisserie chicken, honey, croissants, barbecue sauce, peanut butter, canned soup, bread, two types of cereal, chips, shallots, sweet potatoes, rolls, and chocolate chips.

That finished off August so the totals below will won’t include the rest of the week.

On Saturday, I spent $127.39 at Stop & Shop.  There were many things on sale this week we will eat.

Then on Sunday I spent $24.71 at the farm stand and another $81.24 at Wegman’s.  I’m sense a trend here because I clearly forgot to take pictures of the farm stand visit.  I got broccoli, corn on the cob, green beans, and a heirloom tomato.

Finally on Monday we happened past a different Target.  I hoped to get more grape juice as it was on sale, but they were out.  I did get a few items that BJ’s had been out of totaling $19.85.

August TOTAL: $925.60

  • Stop & Shop: $181.00
  • Wegman’s: $371.42
  • BJs: $241.07
  • Other: $132.11
    • Local: $72.83
    • Star Market/Shaw’s: $0
    • Trader Joe’s: $0
    • Target: $59.28
    • Other: $0

Wow!  That came out much lower than I was expecting.  It turns out I had a few VERY BIG trips, but not that many trips overall.  Exactly the opposite of July.
