I had to make a trip to a town about 45 minutes away from us for the day to help my sister and it just so happens that’s where the closest Costco is, so while I was in the area I stopped by Costco for a few things.

If costco has something on sale that we use regularly I will purchase it, even if it’s not on my list because I know it’s something we’ll use and it’s better to buy it on sale. That was the case with the wontons and the fish sticks. Although we rarely eat processed foods, when something like these are on sale (and decent quality) I will buy them as a treat for my family 🙂 You should have seen their reaction when I bought Kraft Mac & Cheese last year! It was the first time I had bought it in 3 years- you would have thought it was Christmas! haha

Purchased items:

  • 3 (4 packs) of butter
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 large bag of parmesan cheese
  • 1 bag of mini wontons
  • 1 quart of whipping cream
  • 1 package of salad greens
  • 2lbs of strawberries
  • 1 package of hotdog buns
  • 1 package of hamburger buns
  • 1 bag of red potatoes
  • 2 cans of non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 cheesecake
  • 1 tub of sour cream
  • 1 tub of cottage cheese
  • 1 bag of rhodes rolls
  • 1 container of black pepper
  • 1 package of tortillas
  • 1 bag of fish sticks
  • 6lbs of ground beef

I also purchased a pizza since it was getting late and my daughter & I hadn’t had dinner yet. (my hubby and the rest of the kids had eaten dinner at home while we were gone- see day 3 post)

Total Spent at Costco this trip: $165.14

Total Budget for the 30 days used:

Groceries purchased: $275.00

Groceries used in meals: $24.79

Date Night: $0

Pizza: $10.68

Our budget for these 3 for the 30 days is: Groceries- $600, Date Nights- $100 & Pizza- $100 Since we may not use all the groceries purchased in this time we will be tracking both the cost of meals each day as well as the cost of groceries/date nights/pizza purchased during the 30 days. See our grocery trip posts to see a tally of those purchases.
