Today was my last shopping trip to Costco to finish out the last few days of the challenge. If you didn’t see, I bought most of my groceries the first week. So what did I buy this week to get us to the end of the challenge?
- Two bunches of bananas $2.78
- Organic Milk $8.99
- Organic Spinach $3.99
- Organic Cheddar Cheese $6.99
My grand total this week was $22.75. So……did I meet my $475 goal?
NO! My remaining budget for this week was $22.57 – so I went .18 over my $475 goal. I could have gone under my goal, but I decided to buy a second bunch of bananas. We seriously go through that many bananas in a week. I didn’t feel like .18 was a deal breaker, but having my family deprived of a favorite fruit source did feel like a deal breaker.
$475.18 for 4 weeks of eating exclusively from what we buy from Costco and buying as much organic as Costco offers. This has been very doable for our family. At the end of the week, I’ll recap what I’ve learned.
