What is the $60 Weekly Grocery Challenge?
Each week my goal is to spend approximately $60 for food, drinks, groceries, toiletries, diapers 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?
Aldi – $14.09
Harris Teeter – $41.47
Target – $5.87
Total for the Week – $61.43

Here is my receipt showing a breakdown of prices paid for each item:
Harris Teeter Shopping Trip
Here is my receipt:
I wish I could show you the total amount saved this week (like I normally do); however, the register ran out of tape and the receipt smudged this one particular area.
However, I could tell the following from the receipt:
–VIC savings – $52.54
–E-VIC coupon savings – $3.40
–Coupon savings – ??? All I know was that it was a lot :)
My $41.47 total included two packages of pork chops, two packages of pork boneless ribs, Hillshire Farm ham lunch meat and a pound of shrimp from the meat department (on sale this week for only $4.99/lb.).
I also purchased two bags of shredded cheese, eggs, milk, two bags of fresh grapefruit, cottage cheese, oatmeal, soft tortillas, toothpaste, four boxes of cereal, baby wipes, children’s ibuprofen and more. It was a great shopping week!

Quick Stop at Target
At my house, we are almost out of the diaper stage. My 3-year-old son has been potty trained for quite a while, but I still put him in a Pull-Up before bedtime, “just in case.” I can see the end of buying Pull-Ups is in sight (yay)!
