Grocery Haul and Meal Plan – April 3

I’m recovering from my wisdom teeth extraction, finally. I woke up on Saturday to a little bit of pain but mostly full range of motion again, yay!

At least I was able to go shopping myself this week, so we don’t repeat last week. I still need to get to Aldi (they opened one in my city finally!!!) and Costco, because we’re out of chicken.

I’m very happy with this week’s groceries, I got literally almost everything either on sale, in a deal or with a coupon.

Shaw’s haul:

  •  2 packages English muffins – B1G1 $4.39
  • Vegetable oil – was on sale for $2.99 but I didn’t notice that it rang up at $3.99. Oh well.
  • Body wash for hubby – on sale for $4.29 plus a $1 off coupon
  • Shaving cream for hubby – $1.59, plus they scanned it through a second time
  • Deodorant for hubby – on sale for $2.50 plus a $1 off coupon
  • Orange juice – $3.49 each (price went up $0.20)
  • Shredded mozzarella – $1.88
  • Butter – $2.50
  • Ground chicken – $3
  • Grapes – on sale for $0.97 a pound! I got more than $10 worth of grapes for $2.50
  • Spinach – $2.50
  • Deli turkey – $7.48
  • Deli cheese – $2.91

My store was also running a huge deal, buy 10 mix and match items, get them for $0.79 each. I bought:

  • 2 cans of tomatoes, diced and sauce
  • Sandwich bags
  • Pasta
  • Frozen cauliflower
  • 6 greek yogurt tubs

But wait, that adds up to 11 items! Yes, because the sandwich bags didn’t have a sign on them and I didn’t want to end up with 9 items and no sale. However, it worked out because only 5 of the yogurts got scanned. Plus it balances out with the twice-scanned shaving cream. I wish people would pay more attention, but at least it somewhat worked out in my favor this time.

My menu for the week:

I am one recipe short, so I thought I’d wing it with what I have on hand. I always come up with an interesting recipe when I do that.
