Go me, because not only did I manage to spend an entire day at work yesterday, but I also managed to go out after work and buy food! It’s a good sign that the virus that has been kicking my butt for a week is finally starting to leave my system. Even better, this fortnight I didn’t lose my receipts. Which makes it a whole lot easier to blog about it.
$206 Grocery Shop
$148.28 at Coles
As you may have noticed, we do the majority of our shopping at Coles these days. I keep finding that things I want aren’t in stock, or have gone up significantly, at Woolies. As I said in my questions about CostCo post this week, I have hesitations (mainly for health reasons) about buying unfamiliar brands when it comes to prepackaged food. Which is also why I rarely shop at the two Aldi’s near my house.
This shop was a bit more expensive than most, because we ran out of the stuff that generally lasts a long time, such as laundry detergent, washing up liquid, sun cream, dog shampoo and Paxo.
Also, check out the totally bargain prices on pads & tampons. PSA: Coles have a lot of brands half price this week. Stock up on sanitary items – it’s not often they’re this cheap!
$58.29 at Woolies
Again, this was a bit expensive due to needing to replace things that last a long time such as my husband’s coffee and quick eze. The cheese, chips, triple cream brie and V are all TOTAL NECESSITIES, you hear me!? *winks*
We haven’t made it to the fruit & veggie store yet – but I have a five day weekend coming up so I have all the free time (well, for five days) to get that done!
Do you seem to run out of the big things all at once? What do you stock up on when it’s on sale?
