$60 Grocery Budget (Week Ending July 7)

A family of four can survive on a $60 weekly grocery budget (some families do it for even less).

Here’s how we spent our $60 grocery budget for the week of 7/1-7/7:

Walmart : $61.36 (replenishables and supplies for a family cookout)

Food Lion: $13.31

[sorry no pics, the guys put the groceries away too quickly]

Kroger : $27.17 (10 lbs chicken, hamburger buns, bread, milk, ice cream, markdown cupcakes, tortilla chips, flour, shredded mozzarella cheese, can biscuits)

Food Lion – July 6: markdown lunchmeat $2.30

Food Lion: $2.30 (2 lbs lunch meat)

[sorry no pics, the guys put the groceries away too quickly]

Food Lion: $2.78 (2 boxes cereal)

Food Lion - July 7: $8.43

Food Lion: $8.43 (all markdowns – brown sugar, NY strip steak, chicken patties, beef chuckwagon patties)

Results:

Spent $115.35 ($55.35 over budget) [spent $115 for $169 worth of groceries (31% savings)]  My hope is that over 2 weeks, it will balance out and I won’t have to spend any more than the $4.65 I have left for 2 weeks.
