Final February Food Costs #lowcarb

We ended up with more stuff from Sav-a-Lot on the 26th, then we went to Merchandise Mart where I found quite a low carb items including various crunchy snacks, crackers, and SF fruit juice. Great bargains included Dreamfield's spaghetti for $1.29 (I bought 5) and Miracle Noodles for $0.79 (I bought 2)! The total for these items was $20.46.

The total from Sav-a-Lot was $35.30 and included
(4) quarts Half'n'Half @ $1.99 ea
(6) individual pizzas @ $6.34 total (they were different brands)
(1) 12oz bottle of SF maple syrup @ $1.29
(1) head of cabbage @ $0.39/lb
(1) 24 pack of water @ $2.99 (our drinking water is awful here!)
(1) 12-pack diet cola @ $2.69 (for my mom when she's here) + $1.20 deposit
(1) 24 oz shredded mozzarella cheese @ $5.79
(1) 24 oz shredded cheddar cheese @ $5.79

So my grand total for February was $263.00.

March, I believe, will be a little higher, since I'm going to try to put in a order for my baking supplies. I only do this 2-3 times a year, and it usually adds about $100 to the budget for that month.

So far this year I'm averaging under $60/week for groceries including snacks, or about $8.50/day! This makes me happy!
