So, we start the 2019 review on a Wednesday.  I don’t usually publish on Wednesdays, but clearly the “schedule” is a bit fluid at the moment.

I also only got groceries twice last week, which is less than usual.

On Tuesday, I had another big visit to Stop & Shop at $124.73.  Yes, ice cream was on sale.

Then on Thursday I picked up our Farmers to You box.  This week it came to $45.33.


That brought the total for the week to $170.06!  And, both of these shops fell in the month of January so this is a cleaner break than usual.

January TOTAL: $1,150.93

  • Stop & Shop: $301.14
  • Wegman’s: $362.78
  • BJs: $159.36
  • Local: $256.24
    • Farmers to You: $242.16
    • Other Local: $14.08
  • Other: $71.41
    • Star Market/Shaw’s: $32.99
    • Target: $24.62
    • Other: $13.80

Since my target was $1,250/month, this starts us off quite well.

And yet, we continue to eat quite well:

Spaghetti & meatballs, salad

Tuesday (New Year’s Day):
Early:  Chicken nuggets, spinach salad
Late: Homemade pizza


I went out so we got take out pizza for everyone else.

Early: Macaroni & cheese, spinach salad
Late: Homemade pizza
We do plan for split dinners on Friday just for a break before the weekend.

Roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, butternut squash, salad

Homemade pizza for the Super Bowl.
