5/26 Weekly Grocery Run

lets see how we did this week shopping low carb on a budget:

- 2 rolls papertowels, regular $2.68 <--- thats crazy, why would you pay that for one roll of paper towels.. price matched to 50cents each
- 2 18pack containers eggs, matched to 1.99 each
- blue cheese crumbles
- tomatoes, matched to .49cents/lb
- onions, matched to .25cents/lb
- bananas
- pack sugar free jello
- 32oz bag shredded cheese, $8.68 regular, matched down to 5.99
- 2 bottles diet soda, matched to .69each
- mustard, matched to .79
- 10 bottles Wishbone salad dressing..check this part out.. regular price $1.76 each, Sale price at local Randalls with store coupon is $1.19.. i bought 10coupons off of ebay for 99cents(yes , you can buy coupons off ebay)..each coupon is save $1.00 off a bottle of dressing.. so BLAAMM.. got 10 bottles today, matched down to $1.19, then $1.00 coupons...each bottle net cost .19 each....$1.90 total for those 10bottles

bottom line cost after price match and coupons = $33

again notice what we didnt buy, no snacks, nothing in a box (as in highly processed), no rice, no noodles, no bread, no hamburger helper, no chips, no cookies, no regular soda... all that stuff is high carb and probably high in high fructose corn syrup. dont blame your kids for having to buy garbage, you run the house. make a choice to stop eating garbage, stop eating those garbage carbs and you will likely lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks.
