Weekly Shopping Trip
Kroger total for the week: $72.50 for food and $16.50 for pull-ups and flushable wipes for my potty-training resistant son. I still have to buy apples, organic locally-raised eggs, and organic apple juice, so my total will be more like $80 once I hit the health-food store. That means next week my budget will be $60 to keep my monthly spending at $280. I have a separate monthly budget of $100 for baby formula (currently $44 a month and will increase to $88 a month in a few months) and my son's pull-ups. We tried underwear and cloth training pants, but it just ended up with months of constant wet jeans and pee all over my carpet. So disposable pull-ups it is!
As you can see, there is a lot of fresh produce, mostly organic.
I was able to get 3 Steamfresh frozen veggies (I take them out and cook on the stovetop instead of inside the bag) for $0.67 each and 2 bags for $0.50 each).
The Huggies pull-ups were $8.99 at Kroger, and I had a $1.50 off coupon and a $2 off coupon. Huggies are the only brand that fit our skinny boy the best, as the sides are adjustable. The Charmin flushable wet wipes were $2 with coupon.
