Grocery Geek, January 13th

I stocked up a lot at the beginning of the month and already have most of our meals planned for the whole month based on what I bought earlier.  I’m following a pantry challenge for the month of January.  Since posting the pantry challenge, we ended up deciding to have a few more meals at home than we planned so I had to buy a few extra things that I wasn’t planning to buy.


I am happy with the $102 that I spent today, though, for most of 2 weeks!  I still have $148 left for this pay period, and I won’t spend that.

All I will need between now and the next check is: Coffee (the kind I have been getting is super cheap right now), milk, some produce (not much), HEB Coke Zero, and maybe some HEB sparkling water.  Maybe a few other things.  But I think we are pretty set!

Here’s what I bought today!



  • Half and half
  • Cottage cheese
  • Dino nuggets 🙂
  • 2 boxes of snack pack roasted red pepper hummus (8 containers total)
  • 1 gallon of whole milk
  • 2 Digorno (sp?) pizzas (you can only see the corners… this is for our movie night tonight!)


  • 2lbs of HEB bacon (one applewood and one original)
  • 2 packages of Hormel salami
  • 1lb block cheddar
  • 1lb bag of shredded cheddar
  • 30 slices cracker cuts Gouda


  • Goodnights
  • 2, 12pks of HEB coke zero
  • 2 cans pinto beans
  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 2 bags of Unmomento coffee (1 bag of decaf and 1 bag of regular)
  • 2 packages of Lance sandwich crackers


  • 2 dozen eggs
  • 1 bunch bananas
  • 5lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 container of organic salad (I was going to buy non-organic, but this was actually cheaper!)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 4 large broccoli crowns

See my pantry challenge post to see what I already have on hand.  We have lots of food here!
