Grocery Haul for Two and Weekly Average
Good Morning! This week I shopped at both Winco and Costco.
My first stop was Costco..
I picked up a rotisserie chicken, french bread, ranch dressing, Aidells sausage, and granulated garlic. I saw that they had fish sticks on sale and picked up some of those. Costco's fish sticks are the only brand I buy. They are the best tasting fish sticks I've found. Normally the bag is $11.99 and were on sale for $7.99.
I also got more coffee filters. Last week I picked up a 100 count at Winco because each time I'd been at Costco they were out and I didn't want to run out of them. This week I saw them and picked up the pack of 400 cone filters. They are a better price at Costco. Now I should be set for quite some time with coffee filters.
I also saw these jars of alfredo sauce..
They were 15oz each making them a great size for a meal for two. The 4 pack cost $6.99 making each jar approx $1.75.
Total for Costco This week: $57
My next stop was Winco..
I was down to only 1 orange and needed to restock my fresh fruit. I found the 8# bag of oranges on sale for $4.98. I also picked up a couple Cara Cara oranges, apples and bananas. For veggies I only needed the spinach and cucumber for salad making and then got some fresh broccoli and a spaghetti squash.
I found boneless pork ribs for $1.78 a pound. They'll make great bbq ribs, or I can use the ranch dip and Franks Wing Sauce on them (like I did with the chicken), or Yoshidas for more of an Asian taste. Many options! Those went into the freezer.
Spaghetti sauce was on sale for .88 cents a can so grabbed a couple cans. And I couldn't resist some fresh sushi and bought a small package of California Rolls.
Ice cream, milk and half & half. Their half & half was still on sale for $1.88 a quart. I picked up 2 of them. We go through about a quart a week. I checked the date...
I know it will stay fresh and I'll use it up before its date.
Hubby found his favorite Bugles on sale and picked up 4 bags. Mr. Snack Grandpa plans on sharing them with the grandkids :)
Finally there was cookies, my favorite :D I picked up the regular chocolate chip cookies and then saw the chocolate coconut macaroons and picked those up as my birthday treat!
Total for Winco was: $55
Grand total for this weeks shopping: $112
