Every Friday, I share what we ate for the week on our budget. Currently our monthly budget is $500 for my family of 4.
I tried something new this week. I ordered our groceries online through Peapod and had them delivered to my door. It was AWESOME.
Last week, I took advantage of a $20 off coupon for first time users and chose the pick up option instead of delivery, because the delivery times were booked and I wanted to use the coupon. The store is very close to our office, so picking up was convenient.
This week, I received an email promotion for free delivery if I bought $30 worth of specified products. The products were all things that I was going to buy anyway, so I took advantage of the promotion and had our groceries delivered on Monday. I saved myself about an hour and half in time and it just cost me the tip.
Have you tried a grocery delivery service? What are your thoughts?
Our dinners this week:
Saturday: We had store bought, pub steak burgers, spinach salad, corn on the cob and watermelon. I probably paid a little more for the burgers, but they were delicious.
Sunday: We bought two $5 Little Cesar’s pizzas and went to the pool to have dinner.
Monday: grilled sausages, grilled asparagus, fresh fruit.
Tuesday: grilled chicken pasta salad.
Wednesday: Grilled Pineapple & Teriyaki Turkey Burgers, corn on the cob, pasta salad.
Thursday: We had fair food for dinner at Jubilee Day, the largest, longest-running, one-day street fair on the East Coast.
Friday: We’re going to a birthday party and I don’t have to cook–woohoo!
