Groceries, take two

May 7th, 2017 at 08:08 am

Boy, this is really bothering me. It seems the last 10 days of April were heavy grocery shopping days. We ate at home, gave some food to a neighbor, and DH cooks from scratch. The prices at our local grocery store are higher than average. My boys eat a lot...DS1 eats way more than I do, and DS2 probably eats a little more than I do. I will start over as of 5/1 and see what happens this month. So, groceries from 5/1-5/6 was $115, plus $38 at Penzeys Spices, but the spices will last several months. Grocery shopping today, for food this week, was $103. DH will be going to Costco later this week. I know he's treating the boys to steaks on Saturday while I'm out for the birthday party I'm attending. He'll also stock up on fruit at Costco, as it's so reasonably priced there.

    It probably seems like a lot when you see the total, but imagine what the total would be if you ate out a whole lot...far more than what you spent. And your boys are growing boys...they will probably eat quite a bit.

    I thought my boys wouldn't become epic big eaters until they were teenagers. Nope. It starts at 7 and 9 apparently.

    In summer, we grow most of our own veggies or get them cheaper than the grocery store at the farmers market. That won't work for everyone, but even if you grow one tomato plant that's free food!
