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?
Aldi Trip - Spent $21.07
Harris Teeter Trip – Spent $40.73
Total for the Week –$61.80
From the Garden
As I posted last week, my garden in done for the summer. However, my father-in-law brought us a bag of sweet potatoes and apples (for cooking) from his garden this week.
Aldi Shopping Trip
At Aldi, I purchase red and green grapes (both $.99/lb. this week), a bag of pears ($.89/lb.), lettuce, gala apples, milk, honey wheat bread and a few snacks.
Harris Teeter Shopping Trip

At Harris Teeter, I stocked up on meat (buy one, get free cubed steak, $2.99 ground turkey, two packages of pork chops (meat mark down) and a package of boneless pork ribs).
As for coupon deals, I got the $1.50 Land O Frost lunch meat, $2.00 Perdue chicken nuggets, $1.50 Sargento cheese slices, $.20 Texas Toast croutons, $.66 Campbell’s soup, $1.89 Angel Soft toilet paper, $1.89 Blue Bunny ice cream, $1.99 Gorton’s fish filets and $4.49 Quilted Northern toilet paper (12 ct.). I also purchased a couple Harris Teeter brand sale items, such as the instant oatmeal for $1.14 each and the soft drink for $.55 (thanks to the sale paired with the E-VIC coupon).
