$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – Spent $67.80 at Harris Teeter and Aldi

What is the $60 Weekly Grocery Challenge?

Each week my goal is to spend approximately $60 for food, drinks, groceries, toiletries and medicine for my family of five. Then, I report on this blog the items that I bought, the best sales and coupon match-ups that I found and hopefully by doing so, help you stretch your family’s grocery budget, as well!

How Did I Do This Week?

Harris Teeter Trip – Spent $30.21, Saved $102.17
Aldi Trip - Spent $37.59

Total for the Week – $67.80

Note – I also wanted to say that I apologize for my absence on the blog for most of last week. My family went on a cruise to the Bahamas and we had an absolute blast! It was great to get away, but I didn’t have Internet access for five days…which meant no coupon matchups and updates on the blog.

Then, upon returning home, we headed to the lake for three days. I soaked up the family time and I have to say, it was nice to truly “unplug” for most of the week. Last Tuesday, instead of doing coupon matchups at home, I was here:

It was truly a slice of paradise!

Vacation has now concluded and this week life is back to normal. Here is this week’s grocery recap:
