With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s time to concentrate on baking for the holidays. Although I was able to stock up on 3 pounds of butter this past week, I know I’ll need more for all those Christmas Cookies I plan on baking. I’m thinking 5 more pounds of butter should get me though until the end of the year.
As long as I do not splurge and purchase any exotic ingredients for my cookies, I think I’ll be okay budget wise. We’ll see.
Here is what I picked up this week from the grocery stores –
Fred Meyer- $11.48
I need a cow! I should have bought 2 bags of the satsuma oranges because the kids gobbled this 5 pound bags up in just 2 days!
Albertsons – $.35
You gotta love those gift card promotions. Since the gift card deal is going on through 11/29 I may pick up 1 more gift card to Lowe’s. I’m still debating about it.
Albertsons – $0.79
I was able to stock up on a boatload of meat thanks to some manager markdowns and a bunch of coupons. The HH was thrilled I brought home his favorite weenies and we can always use more chicken.
Well, that’s all I purchased last week. Stocking up when the prices are low totally rules if you ask me. I really think I can make it to the end of the year even though I only have 80+ to spend.
What do you think? Am I in it to win it, or will I fail miserably?
Total Spent This Week $ 12.62
Total Spent This Year $1,119.50
Total Spent This Year on Garden Seeds/Supplies $524.20
Total “Seed Money” donations received $51.00
Have you been to grocery outlet?
No, not in like 15 years. Should I be shopping there?
I bought that bag of satsumas at Fred Meyer,too! They were exceptionally delicious. Sweet and juicy. All gone!
Why did you buy eggs? I thought you had chickens????

That butter comment cracked me up. Do you know how much butter I use on a regular (not Christmas baking) week? About four—FOUR—pounds. If I had to make do on 8 pound of butter until the new year, I’d have a full-blown panic attack!
I’m in the same boat…I don’t think I quite use 4 a week, but a solid 3 for sure. 🙂
What is the name of the site you sometimes mention that starts with V? I believe you buy grocery items at the site. Thanks.
