Grocery Shopping on a Budget: Week of May 6th...

Sorry again about last week!  I am back with my regular Grocery Shopping post with what I bought and how much I spent.

This week we had a few friends over for a cookout and grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.  It is something that I do not eat often but was really good!  My bill was a little more from buying the extra food for that but it is always worth it to have friends over for a good time!

This is what I bought:


This week I was able to get my corn on sale for 6 for $2!  We love corn and I thought that was a great price!  The button mushrooms were on sale for $1.79 and the lettuce was on sale for $1.29.  I was also able to get my strawberries for $1.99 a pound.  


For my meats this week I was able to get the big package of all natural chicken breasts for $7, the pepperoni for $2, the Ground Beef (we normally don't eat ground beef very often) for $2 off each pkg (I bought 2 pkg), and the Hot Dogs for $2.  


I bought store brand hamburger and hotdog buns for our cookout (most of the time store brand is cheaper), and I was able to get the Arnold Multigrain bread for $3.  Have you tried Cole's Bread sticks?  YUM is all I have to say!!  


I was able to get the whipped topping for $1 each but everything else was regular price.  (I normally don't buy that cheese but that is what hubby wanted on his burger for the cookout.)


The chips (for cookout) were BOGO Free, I got a $1 off of my coffee (yay!), the Mayo was on sale for $2, the cinnamon rolls were 2 for $4 (I normally don't buy these unless they are on sale), and the Classico Alfredo sauce was on sale for $2.

Everything Else:

Yes, I buy store brand bath tissue! :)
I got the baby wipes on sale for $2.20 and the body wash was on sale as well.  I got a great deal on our charcoal at $5 for a bag!  

I actually went over my budget again this week, but that is okay...

Look how much I was able to buy for $150:

With my MVP card and my coupon for my coffee, I saved almost $20 this week!
