Groceries breakdown 29 April

It was a shocker of a grocery shop due to needing a few big cost items like nappies, toilet paper, 2 lots of shampoo and conditioner, and toothbrushes bumping up the Baby and Bath section.  I also needed to refill a few pantry staples all at once making the pantry section explode.

This grocery shopping relates to Week 2 of my monthly menu plan and again the Frozen Goods category goes up due to having frozen fish.  I am going to have to change that somehow as we would prefer different varieties of fish anyway.

Fresh Produce $62.75
Dairy Products $28.88
Frozen Goods $21.13
Meat $26.69
Bread $30.02
Pantry Items $101.54
Bath and Baby $95.45
Dog $11.69
Treats $6.27

 Spent in total $384.42

Just a tip for those who go through lots of bread - consider making your own (trying that this week after a long break) or try wraps/tortillas.  The wraps keep very well in my bread box and hold up quite well for chicken and salad which is our usual way of eating them.

I asked dh if he wanted to know how much we spent this week.  H*ll no!  Hmmm, wonder who likes to bury his head in the sand about these budgetary matters.

Best wishes

  1. Hi Jen,
    I used to quite enjoy meal planning, budgeting and shopping but these days everything is so expensive it can be daunting. I understand why your hubby might bury his head in the sand!


Thank you for visiting. I would love to hear from you and tend to reply in the comments. It is nice to just have a chat some times.
