1st Grocery shopping for the year.

January 10th, 2009 at 03:49 am

DH and I went grocery shopping today for the first time this year. We actually run out of fresh milk 2 days ago but we held out until today. We just open one of those long life milk. They are great for emergency usage such as the other day.

Anyway, today we went to Aldi, the butcher shop, and fruit & veg shop. They pretty much next to each other. All up we spent $73.49 and this is what we got for that amount of money.

What we got from Aldi($50.74):
4kg bag of Potato (was on sale for only $1.49 a bag)
1.5kg of Bananas
1kg Carrots
1kg Raw Sugar
Can of sliced pineapple
Hot Dogs*
2pk Sponges
Sour Cream
3lt of Fresh Milk
1lt of Long life Milk
3x Fabric Softener
Cranberry Sauce
1/2kg Broccoli
2x Biscuits*
2x Bread
2x Can of Tomatoes
2x Can of Tuna
Box of Tissue
Cleaning Cream
Dishwashing Liquid

What we got from the Fruit & Veg shop ($10.75):
Spring Onions
1/2 Celery
1/4 Pumpkin
1/2 Cauliflower
1bg of Turkish Bread

Only thing that's not in the photo are the 3 whole chickens that I got from the butcher shop for $12. It was a very good deal, it saved about $1 per kilo compare to Aldi.

Tonight's dinner will be roast chicken and vegies, one of DH's fav. And I'm thinking for lunch tomorrow will be leftover roast chicken with salad wrap in Turkish bread.

I don't think we will need much more for the rest of the month. I'm hoping to only spend another $25 for the month. I think I might make this a goal - to only spend $100 on grocery this month.

    So your freezer and pantry are pretty full right? I think we could do $100.00 a month for about 3 months with our freezer/pantry, but then I would have to restock.

    The pantry is pretty full but the freezer is quite lean. We actually don't have a stand alone freezer. So our freezer space is quite small, it's the main reason why I can't really stock up on meat products.
