Saturday Shopping 8/4/12

I went to the mid-size city near us today and did some grocery shopping.  I say mid-size because we are 45 minutes from Atlanta and that is a big city and we are 20 minutes to Macon which is mid-sized.  I am also 5 minutes to Forsyth which is small but does have a grocery store and a Wal-Mart.  My budget to feed my family of 7 is $100 a week.

My first stop was the bakery outlet.  Here is what I got:

I spent $10.50.  This should last us the week.

Then I went to Kroger.  They had bone-in chicken breast for $.99 a pound and corn 3/$1.00.

 I spent $18.60.  Then I went to Aldi.  Now Aldi is my favorite place for fresh stuff and staples for cheap.  I have never been disappointed with the quality of their items.

It was around $66 total.  I think I did pretty well.  I have about $5.00 left for the week for some sale stuff at CVS.
