September Grocery Haul: Part 2...

Morning friends!! Today I have part 2 of my September grocery haul for you. Last week I shared our Costco haul. You can check that out here.

I did all my shopping in one day. I went to Costco in the morning and Fry's in the afternoon. I brought baby girl with me. My nursing babies pretty much go everywhere with me. I put her in the Moby wrap and she slept during each shopping trip. In between trips I came home to unload, eat lunch, and feed Tallia. It was definitely a long day, but such a blessing to know my shopping is done till October. I'll only go back mid month for a produce restock. I made sure to leave some money for that. I'll have $59.18 to spend on produce come mid September. I'll be sure to share about that later.

At Fry's I was able to grab fresh produce. We still had some stuff in our fridge, so I didn't get too much. I also stocked up on gravy packets, frozen veggies, bread, and some canned goods. Gravy packets I use when I need a quick meal. We have potato flakes we buy in #10 cans from the LDS Home Storage Center. They can be made in under five minutes. I top them with gravy and veggies on the side. It makes for a quick filling meal. If we have leftover meat, I throw that into the gravy as well. The frozen veggies are great in stir frys and when it gets to the end of the month and our fresh produce is running low. Bread this month was 4/$5. I'm slowly getting back into making my own, but only when time allows. I'm giving myself a little grace in that area. The other canned goods I got were for meals throughout the month.

At Fry's I spent $211.42. Below is my cost breakdown.

  1. congrats on getting your Sept shopping done.. Some good bargains too.. Sweet Tallia is so sweet to sleep though out the shopping.. Hope you and family are enjoying your new home, and hubby is enjoying the new job..

  2. Since you said gravy packets I thought I share to check out Costco for gravy mix. They sell in in a big seasoning container with the spices for around $3-4. My favorite (and my kids favorite) is to put a few breasts of chicken in the crock pot with about 2 cans of chicken broth (enough to cover chicken. can add water to cover if needed). Let it cook on low for about 8 or so hours. Pull out the chicken and shred with 2 forks. Make gravy with the liquid and the gravy mix. Then I combine the chicken and gravy in the crock pot while I finish the rest of the meal. We have had it with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles (whatever we have but mashed potatoes are our favorite) and some veggies. You can cook a bunch of chicken and use some for enchiladas, chicken salad sandwiches, etc. or other things you will need "cooked chicken" for. So kind of a cook once eat several times situation. I have not tried this other version yet but my aunt does the same but instead of chicken broth she uses sunny d. And then makes some kind of glaze with the juice and its kind of an orange chicken. goes well with rice I hear. :)
