Grocery Shopping Haul

Grocery Shopping Haul

This week I was very bad! I purchased Lunch every single day! Anyone who knows me knows this is certainly not my style. I live life on a budget and while an occasional Lamb Gyro here doesn’t hurt it certainly isn’t something I practice.

Simply put, I had no choice. My fridge was empty, cupboards was empty, even the cats bowls was empty.

So finally I hit the grocery store and to my surprise I didn’t have to cough up over $200.00. Here’s what I managed to get!

Look at my trolley! (Fact: Trolleys are being made larger to trick persons to thinking they haven’t purchased enough items). 

I felt real good about my purchase and even better when I had tip left over for the packing boy!

Let’s dissect this for a minute.

Fruits and Vegetables

I’ve been trying very hard to get my family to eating more healthy. Sorry I got lazy and they are still wrapped in bags but here I got romaine lettuce, sweet potatoes, bananas, tomatoes, grapes, Idaho potatoes, limes, oranges and sweet pepper.

My highlight here was the 5lb bag of potatoes for $1.89 and the oranges which were 3 for 99cents.

The meat department was very clean and well organized. I don’t think I am use to all the space that was available for me to twirl my trolley around!


I didn’t see any meat packages listed but the individual pricing wasn’t that bad at all. Here I got ground beef , pork chops, portion chicken wings (for that Curry!!!), petite steak and porkloins.

Highlight here was the porkloins at just $6.04 and the petite steak were  $2.99. I’ve gotten this at the other guys for over $6.00 average same size so win win here.

Sunny D (hubby started drinking before I took the pic) was 2 for $5 which seems to be normal at the other stores and I was a bit disappointed on the cold cut selection. It was either ham or turkey and they didn’t offer a lot of brands to choose from but over all I was able to get 2 boxes of cereal (Navy picked that milo thing), 2 yogurts, hot dog, bacon, eggs, wheat bread, bagels, cheddar cheese, turkey cold cut, and egg0.

Nothing to really highlight here but I do like the brands of cereal they have and although it’s generic for $3.09 you can’t tell me that isn’t the real honey bunches of oats!

A side from that I filled my cup board with canned goods and other staples. Spaghetti, tuna, chicken noodle soup, condiments, sugar and spices.

Highlight here was the spaghetti which was either 2 for $3 (chef boyardee) available in assorted flavors but you know us Bahamians it’s all spaghetti even if I bought beefaroni. Or you can get the Libby’s brand which was 99 cents a can.

Keep in mind this is all grocery. I did pick up a few toiletries that tipped the budget but still were good bargains.

You can’t tell me this isn’t Charmin and for $6 total win. If you buy this and have kids please watch them or you’ll need a me 😑 that toilet will be so clogged! That’s how thick this is!

Overall, I was happy I paid a visit. I maximized my budget and walked it a winner!
If you have any tips or suggestions on where you get your bargains leave a comment!
