July Grocery Shopping – Weeks 3 & 4

My grocery budget for the month of July is $300. So far, I’ve spent $182.44. I did not have to go shopping the week of July 13th, so that really helped me to stretch my grocery budget!

Here’s what I got last week and over the weekend (sorry – no photos this week).

Sam’s Club:

50 lb sugar
5 lb shredded mozzarella cheese
5 lb shredded mild cheddar cheese

Piggly Wiggly:

1 box gallon storage bags
2 (12 oz) bags white baking chips
1 bottle orange extract
4 pieces of candy

Wal-Mart:

5 lb container Country Time Lemonade
2 lb butter
3 (5 oz) boxes Jell-O
4 (2.5 oz) boxes Jell-O
5 Totino pizzas
4 gal. Green Tea
4 gal. Milk

Total (w/ tax): $99.73

Total for the month of July: $282.17

Total left in budget: $17.83

I do still need to get potatoes, but it shouldn’t be too much.

**UPDATE: Brian picked up 20 lbs of potatoes at the store for me last night and spent $6.45.

New total for the month: $ 288.62

New total left in budget: $11.38

Not bad!!
