The Grocery List to finish October 2010

My Grocery Cart Challenge is creating a list and following through with the priority items
For the rest of the week we could use closer to $70 but I expect to have more like $25 so.....

at least a gallon of milk, $3* or $6
a box of cereal, $3*
a box of flavored oatmeal, $1.50*
a box of popcorn $2*
at least a loaf of bread $1.50* or $3
a package of lunch meat $1** up to $5
peanut butter $2* or 3
fruit snax $2 or $4
lunchbox goodies $2* up to $5
fruit/veggies $2** up to $10
bug spray $10
cash for lunch card $4*
* means priority ** means double it

November is upon us and I have to remeber to budget to have the kids home for an entire week at the end of the month along with the visiting grandkids I should expect almost daily and maybe a short visit from a few of the grown kids on a day or so that they have off from work and are not visiting their SO's families.
I did it!! I got my needed groceries for less than $25 to fill in for the rest of the week,till payday.
Hubs caught our 13 year old eating breakfast at school today after he ate breakfast at home 20 minutes earlier LOL Feeding teenage boys is busy work!!
I have linked this with GCC.


  1. I'm so glad I did this online cuz I forgot my paper list and could access this from my phone while I was in WM

  2. Hey, you can buy pop corn kernels and put them in a paper bag, roll it up and pop it in your microwave. Muuuuch cheaper than buying the packaged stuff. =)

  3. Thanks for the tip Michelle. I'll have to give that a try.
    At present we get 8 bags of popcorn for $2. I know it's probably the lazy way out but at least it is a bit healthier snack that my tweens can prepare for themselves.
