Tyler over at Titus 2: 3-5, who hails from Canada, wants to know what we spend on groceries. I happen to have my receipt from Waldbaum's, one of the groceries at which I shop here on Long Island, New York. (You don't live 'in' Long Island. You live 'on' it. If you were in it...you'd be buried.)
I bought a lot of stuff on sale, with coupons, and I got $114.27 worth for $61.80. I bought some Campbell's microwaveable bowls really cheap. Usually, they run about 2.39 each. Ouch--ridiculous! But...they were on sale for 1.33, and I had a bunch of coupons for 75 cents off two. So they ended up being about 58 cents each. I probably did the math wrong (Tyler did some great math converting Canadian gas prices to Americanese--I'm not that good), but I know I saved a ton.
It was a lucky weekend because the paper guy put extra coupon circulars in the paper. Don't you love it when that happens?
Okay, some regular prices--I bought most of these on sale:
Totino's Pizza Rolls (large) 4.99 (I paid $3 minus a coupon)
Coffeemate Liquid Creamer 2.99 ($2 on sale)
Head of Broccoli 2.99 (1.50 on sale)
Head of Cauliflower 2.99 (1.50 on sale)
Sorrento Mozzarella (16 oz) 6.49--double OUCH but it was BOGO so a good deal. And hey, this is an Italian family...we NEEEED Mozzarella!
I can also tell you that avocadoes are up to about $2 each now. I didn't buy any this week, but a few weeks ago they were $1 each, so I mushed up a few, mixed 'em with lime juice and froze them for future guacamole.
I'm sorry I don't have a lot to tell you about. I've been playing "The Grocery Game" for several years now and have a good stockpile, so I don't buy many 'individual' items at the grocery.
Do you want to tell us what groceries cost by you? Here's the link to Tyler's site:
