Costco Time!

Ok, maybe I went overboard ... I mean, heck, we are doing a #Shelftember Challenge for September ... $30 a week for groceries and other things picked up ... I blew the budget the last week of August and honestly, it doesn't really do any good if you go over budget and then stop cold turkey 100% ... not really a learning experience you know? Or lifestyle habit. Or just plain right.  Click here for the rest of the Grocery Shop In Review ...

$2.99 each

Ugh.

Anyways. I went to Costco. I had a list. They didn't have a few of the things on my list. Scrubby Bubbles? Nada.Wood Polish? Zilch.



Great.

So I bought other things instead. And totally not related to cleaning!


Here's what I picked up that fine Sunday morning (August 27th, 2017):

Kirkland protein bars $17.99

Costco size box of granola bars $12.29 less $3.80
2.5 pounds cashews $19.99
cottage cheese (3 pounds?) $4.99
10 count frozen ham & cheese omelette $9.49 (this was stupid but I wanted to see how they reheat in microwave before I make my own)
Avocado mayo $8.49
Asian Chopped Salad $4.79
3 pk butter lettuce $4.99
5 pk artisan baby romaine $3.99
2 pk splatter screens $19.99
case of egg white cartons $8.99
2 pk serving boards (bamboo) $14.99 less $5 (somehow I missed they were this cheap!)
2 pineapples $2.99 each
Ciabatta/Torta rolls $6.49 (so sad these got this expensive)
rotisserie chicken $4.99 (impulse buy which is bad ... we don't like chicken like this!)

swifter duster $14.49 less $3
6 pk tuna $12.99 less $3
3 pound bag of almonds $12.99 less $3


I used my $22 gift card that was from the previous month. Did you know if you buy something and then a coupon comes out the next month, you can take your receipt back and get the credit? That's what my $22 was from!

Been to Costco lately? And tell me the truth, do you really stick to your list? I know that's what my problem is. I ended up NOT picking up a few things because I knew I was over budget :(

Keep an eye out for the upcoming regularly scheduled Grocery Shops In Review post ...
