Monday Grocery Shopping

Today was my first day doing my shopping during the week. My four year old was at my mom's for a sleepover so thankfully I just had my two year old with me- next week I'll have both of them and I am slightly dreading it.

Whole Foods

3 lb Bag Tangerines $3.99
Iceberg Lettuce $2.29
(2) Organic 1/2 Gallon Milk @ $4.39 each (local- from Maine)
So Delicious Ice Cream Bars $4.99 - $1 MC - $1 Whole Deal Coupon - $1 Ibotta = $1.99
Feel Good Foods Egg Rolls $4.99 (gluten and dairy free- so excited to eat them!!!!)
365 Frozen Corn $2.49 (certified gmo free)
Earth Balance Organic Buttery Spread $4.29 (dairy free)
(2) 365 Cage Free Eggs @ $2.99 each
365 Tortilla Chips $2.79 (certified gmo free)
365 Veggie Puff Chips $1.99 (certified gmo free)
Natures's Path Organic Corn Puffs $2.19
2.26 lb London Broil $11.28
2.13 lb Bone In Pork Chops $10.63
2.85 lb Beef Brisket $19.92 

Less $30 rebate card (got from an Energy Star rebate on our refrigerator that we bought over the summer)

Total: $53.60 after Ibotta rebate

I know your eyes are probably popping out of your head about how much I spent on the beef brisket considering mainstream brisket is less than $2 a pound, but it is antibiotic and nitrate free which is very important to me. I will not buy any meat that contains those things because they are not good for my family to eat- I would rather not buy meat at all then buy meat filled with questionable ingredients. Plus, I loath factory farmed meat.

Stop and Shop

5 lb Bag Potatoes $3.99
3 lb Bag Onions $3.49 - $3.49 (free when you buy potatoes)
1 lb Organic Carrots .99
1.93 lb Cabbage .56
Stop and Shop Pure Cane Sugar $2.00 (gmo free)
Morton Kosher Salt $3.19
5 Alexia Fries @ $3 each - $5 Instant Savings - $1.50 Catalina = $1.70 each
(2) American Flatbread Pizza @ $5.99 each - (2) $1 MC = $4.99 each
Clif Kids Z-Bars $3.00

Less $3 off $30 home mailer coupon

Total: $28.21

I had another $1 Alexia coupon that I got in a home mailer but for some reason it got deleted from my order- oh well, you win some and you lose some.

As you can see, I am trying to stock my freezer with easy, husband friendly foods that can be made when I am at work on Saturdays- if I don't do this then the kids end up eating fast food.
