Weekly Shopping Trip 2/22/09

We have been member's of BJ's for about two years now and our membership just came up for renewal. Daddy and I talked long and hard about whether or not to spend the $45 to renew. The last couple of months that I have gone that I did not find really good deals. So we decided to not renew our contract and if we can always sign up again in the future if we decide we should go back. Our monthly budget for BJ's was $100 so we will increase our weekly budget from $40 to $65 and starting next month I will start shopping accordingly. However, this month since I had not gone to BJ's we were starting to run low on staples and pantry items, I spent this week stocking up on some great sales that Wegman's had going on. Bonus to going to Wegman's is down the street is Amelia's Grocery Outlet. So head there first and stock up on things and then headed over to Wegman's for the rest. Check out HERE how else everyone spend their grocery dollars.

They are not really close by but I will be near them tomorrow for a doctors appointment and we will have to see if they are going to be worth the trip.
