Guppy 2's birthday went pretty well...I say only pretty well because her BFF and boyfriend are both away on family vacations so she was a tiny bit crabby about it. All in all though I am fairly sure she had a decent day. I do know she loved what we bought her so all the time I spent searching for the unique gifts was time well spent! LOL
As for the grocery shopping, well I went when I was still a bit hungry....Not good I know! Keeping that in mind, here's how I did:
Biy Y: $136.01
1 bag of snowflake rolls (8 count)
1 (4 pack) apple turnovers
1 (4 pack) raspberry turnovers
1 large canister of store brand whipped cream
1 lb Cabot butter
1 (16 oz) container of sour cream
1 (4 pack) Jello chocolate pudding
2 (16oz) packages of shredded cheeses
1.5 lbs deli sliced American cheese
1 bag of zesty French fries
10 individual Ice sparkling lemon drinks
2 medium sized packages of granola
12 pack of toilet paper
1 (12 pack) Snapple
6 (32 oz each) Gatorades
1 (12 pack) Poland Spring water
1 (24 pack) Nature Valley granola bars
2 Fiber One packs (one brownie and one coffee cake) G1 is having ummm...tummy issues and requested these since they help move things along
2 (1 lb) packages of Tyson bacon
2 lbs of red onions
2 lbs of yellow onions
2 lbs of red seedless grapes
5 lbs of Russet potatoes
5 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes
2 (16 oz) packages of strawberries
1 package of organic red & green leaf lettuces
1 pint mini sweet peppers
1 (16 oz) container of salad dressing
1 large container of seafood salad
Total Spent So Far For July: $502.80!!!
It is shaping up to be an pretty expensive month! My goal is to keep the damage to under $700 for July's total - which I *think* will be doable.
Tomorrow I will most likely be attempting the farmer's market alone since Papa has to work until midafternoon. (I say attempting because I hate having to parallel park!) There I will be focusing on primarily Smyth Dairy (completely out of milk/heavy cream/half&half/yogurt) and a few items from our favorite "happy meat" farmer.
On the plus side, our overall soda consumption has gone WAAAAY down! My Guppy 2 has even completely given it up! And, I am down to maybe one or two sodas max per day!
Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend!
