    Meat Shopping Trip! (plus Monthly Spending Total)


    Disclosure

    In keeping up with our families monthly spending, it is important for you to see our whole month of shopping! Today it was time to shop for meat. We were shopping for 24 meals (planning 6 meals per week, we always eat at church on Wednesdays). We did “splurge” and get a few packages of frozen veggies to make a couple of easy meals this week (I won’t have time to get to our local produce stand until next week).

    Here’s what I got today at Good Earth Foods in Tampa:

    (2) Unbreaded Chicken Wings 5 lbs ($10 per bag) = $20
    (1) Pork Chops 5 lb box $11.00
    (3) Bag Frozen Veggies $3.00 each = $9.00
    (8) Frozen Chicken Breasts (Pilgrim’s Pride Brand) around $16.50 each = $58.53
    (6) Fresh Cantaloupe FREE
    (Offered a True Couponing special, when you spend $100. They extended us mercy for being within $2.)
    Grand Total: $98.53

    For our family of six, this should last our family 24 meals. Meat
    Price per meal: $4.11

    While I shop at a local meat market, another inexpensive option for your meat is to pick it up from a company such as Zaycon (this is what Melisha does).

    So this months spending re-cap was:  Trip #1: $111 + Trip #2: $25 + Trip #3: $54 + This Meat Trip: $98.53 = $289.10! But I also made a quick “dessert” run on Memorial Day (shown at right), in which I spent just under $20. So that brings our total spending for the entire month to $309.10.  Next month I will work in a couple of Wags Trips (my stockpile is currently so full of Health & Beauty items, I didn’t needed to shop there this month).
    Can you see how possible this is for YOUR family?

    ~Be encouraged! Happy Shopping!

      You mention that you usually go to a local produce stand for your fruits and veggies.  Approximately how much do you typically spend there in a month?

      Is Good Earth a store you can shop at, or do you have to pre order?

    • TrueKati

      All the meat is frozen at Good Earth. The store is very clean and most meats are natural. I am picky about organic/grass fed/sustainable products. Quality meat has good prices too, this would be comparable to them. I wish Felton’s would put packaged dates on their products, I haven’t purchased there for that reason. Hope that helps.

      HI! Do you know how the prices and quality of the meats compare to other area meat markets like feltons or quality meats? I am trying to decide where to go stock up. Thanks
