Grocery Savings

Yesterday, I went to the grocery store.

My cabinets were beginning to look like "Old Mother Hubbard's." I have not bought groceries in quite a while now. I have been trying to cook up all that I had to help keep some costs down.  I think the only thing, that I have bought since my last shopping trip was eggs, milk, sugar and yeast.


I shopped at Publix and at Ingles.  I'm doing all that I can to stay away from Walmart.  Even Ingles is beginning to do what they can to keep you from saving money. I noticed that about the cheese that I had bought, which was suppose to be on sale.

Here's the low down of what I bought and spent. I didn't do too well this week, due to the lack of items we normally use that were not on sale. ;) Also, you'll notice that there are a few items that would be considered splurges like the ice cream and Coke.

  1. Looks like you did pretty well in the end. I hate going to Walmarts as well! Seems like almost every store has little tricks to keep you from saving money. It's "us" against "them". Looks like you won the most recent round!

  3. Oh how I wish we had a Publix near us! Ingles needs competition to make them come down on their prices.

  4. I agree! Ingles is so expensive. Publix is too on a good bit of their items. But their sales are out of this world.
