Weekly Menu 5/15 - 5/20


I finally decided to watch an episode of Extreme Couponers. There is absolutely no way I could become anything like those people, I hardly have enough time in my week to get the regular stuff done so there is no possible way I could spend something like 30 hours cutting coupons. But since I had to make a Costco trip for work, I figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to see if purchasing anything in bulk would save me any money.

Of course, once I got to the store I found that I didn't have a pen in my purse. So I need to go back, but I was able to price out some items that we buy frequently since I know the prices. I only wanted to spend $100 but I ended up spending $124. Not that bad, overall. Here's what I got:

  • 6 boxes of organic free range chicken broth for $1.92 per box. We pay $2.19 for the non-organic Walmart brand. 
  • 44 oz. Nexxus Moisture Therappe shampoo for $14.99. I pay $9.99 for 13.5 oz.
  • 44 oz. Nexxus Moisture Therappe conditioner for $19.99. I pay $13.99 for 13.5 oz.
  • 114 Neutrogena make-up remover wipes for $12.99. A pack of 50 is around $4.
  • 1 lb. McCormick Taco Seasoning Mix for $3.59. A 1.25 oz. packet is around $1.29
  • 144 oz. Snuggle fabric softener for $7.69. 64 oz. is $3.99.
  • 102 quart sized zip lock bags and 104 gallon sized bags for $7.99. Each box of 60-100 or so is around $2.00
And a few other things that seemed like they would save money. I definitely want to look at the vanilla extract, yeast, oatmeal, flour and mozzarella cheese next time I'm there. Onto the menu:

Sunday - recipe swap meal - vegetarian

Monday - BBQ chicken with baked potatoes and corn maque choux

Tuesday - sauerkraut and keilbasa

Wednesday - mushroom risotto

Thursday - french dip sandwiches with fries

Friday - shrimp scampi
