Grocery Shopping

January 14th, 2012 at 05:13 am

Just did some grocery shopping. We decided to go to the market, they are a lot cheaper specially just before closing (around 12-1pm), a lot of the fruit and vegetables were just $1 a kilo, we got bananas and capsicum for $1 a kilo. The lettuce and lebanese cucumber were 2 for $1. Also got a bit of meat. We should have enough meat in the freezer to last us until the end of the month. The only problem I find going to this market is the car park, there are not enough and it gets crazy. This market is only open 3 days a week and on Saturday they just want to get rid of everything because they don't open again until Thursday. I think we will try to go to the market more often again, we used to go every week but just got tried with the craziness.

Near by the market is a Safeway, were we went and got milk and taco shells, DH wants to make tacos for dinner tonight.

We ended up spending $5.90 at Safeway and $31.05 at the market. All up we spent $36.95 and now have $75.85 left in our grocery budget for the month. So far so good.

Exercise Update:
I didn't do any yesterday.
Thurs I put in $1 for sit ups and push ups.
Today I've done some sit ups and push ups already and I will get on the bike soon. Hoping for another $2 contribution today.

    Food prices i our region of Canada have escalated since summer, the official figure is 3/4% but my bill is nearer 6% higher. We're more careful to make a menu plan and stick with it at least weekly. I try not to let items reach near expiry by being mindful of pantry foods.
