Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend has been great so far. I had a pretty busy work week, so I am enjoying kicking back and relaxing (for the most part) this weekend. Sometimes you just need those “lazy” weekends.
My last grocery haul post was all the way back in the beginning of March. But don’t worry. I’ve been grocery shopping a few times since then! It’s about time I share a peek into my grocery bags again, don’t you think? I’m mixing things up a little today by showing you what I purchased and how much I paid for each item. I’m going to warn you ahead of time… it was not a cheap week. At all. Someday I swear I am going to get this grocery budget thing under control.

*I am toying around with the idea of trying grain-free and would, therefore, have to say bye-bye to my beloved Vega One. I am going to try this protein powder out to see if I like it. I sure hope that I do, because if I make the transition to grain-free, I am still going to need my smoothies!

Sprouted Corn Tortillas- $3.19 (Whole Foods)
Organic Coconut Milk- $3.99 (Whole Foods)

If you were following along, I shopped at four (yes four!) grocery stores and spent a total of $114.93 (after $9.19 in coupons). This was definitely not a “typical” week for me. I generally spend around $85 to $90. This week, however, I was stocking up on quite a few pricey products that I only buy now-and then (protein powder, nut butters, hemp hearts, acai packs, etc.). Let’s hope next week’s grocery bill is a bit more reasonable 😉
What did you buy this weekend at the grocery store?
Did you splurge on anything special?
