A Very Large Grocery Haul

We needed food for us and for company coming. So I did all of my errands and grocery shopping in about 3 hours. I first went to the library to donate some more books and then to Fast Cash to bring back two bags of Hubby’s cans and bottles.

Then I did the grocery shopping. First shop was Aldi’s pictured above. Here is the receipt. 


Next was a trip to Top’s. Here is that receipt.

The last stop was at Niagara Produce.

 The total was $ 117.10. It is the most I have spent on groceries in a long time. Hubby and I love grass fed loin lamb chops from Australia. Top’s had them on sale for $ 6.99 a lb. $26.01 was spent on those. That is such a terrific deal. I may go back and get more since they had a limit of three on them.

Niagara Produce had chicken tenders on sale for $1.99 a lb. Their chicken is so tender and these will be handy for quick buffalo chicken or bunless fajitas. When I am in need of quick cold cuts, they have the freshest in town and the cheapest.  I was also happy to see this bag of lemons on sale because my supply of frozen lemon slices was just about gone. I always use them in my water. 

I am off to hopefully finish the basement today. I have a few more things to move and some vacuuming to do and the pantry will be empty and ready for Hubby to finish it. It has been a major job. Many nights I just fell into bed exhausted.

Did you get anything on sale when you grocery shopped this week? Won’t you share it with us?

The rain kept us in this week. All week long, I have told Tommy what to put on a list. I can make a list, but I am up and doing things, so I just call it out.

My grocery trip yesterday was $146. We are currently eating "Code Red" for 7 weeks (we agreed to do this until March 1).

We needed some meats and I wanted something different as I'm tiring of our current freezer stock. So I bought Tri-Tip strips, Boneless Pork Ribs and 4# of bacon. I also bought a lot of organic vegetables for roasting and for salads.

I should only need to replenish vegetables for the remainder of the month so I am fine with yesterday's expense!

Hi Elle,

Enjoy your diet. It seems to be a lot like Atkins and Keto. Yum on the meats. I have never had a tri- tip steak.

I felt the same way as you do about the money I spent this week. Not much needed next week. Our neighborhood children are on winter break so the grocery stores will be packed with kids. I will be avoiding shopping during next week.

Hi AD, this is Chris. Happy Valentine's Day! I have a bad head cold (not flu), so have mostly been to the store for fresh things, and last night sent hubby to get the fresh things for our Valentine's Day dinner. We are having some sirloin steak from the beef we got last year, baked potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts, and cucumber salad. I cooked all week, so we will have lots of leftovers for the weekend and first of next week. I took a 2 hr nap today. Our son got tickets for Christmas to take me to the local opera on Sunday and I am trying to be well enough to go.

Hi Chris,

Happy Valentine's Day to you too. So sorry to hear about your cold. They have been awful this year. I hope you get better really soon. Your dinner sounds delicious. I hope you can enjoy that opera.
