I was going to go to Shaw's today to pick up a few things but my lovely GPS to me to a store that must have closed awhile ago because it wasn't there. I changed my plans and decided to go to BJ's to check out what they had for organic options. I wasn't too impressed and do not see myself making BJ's a regular stop but maybe just a once every few months thing.
Earth's Pride Organic Apple Juice $4.99
Horizen Organic Milk $3.89 (my husband's favorite)
2.5 lb Organic Grapes $5.49 ($2.20 a pound)
Earth's Pride Organic Juice Boxes $9.49 (32 juice boxes)
Applegate Turkey Breast $7.69 (2 packages)
5 lbs Organic Apples $7.99 ($1.60 a pound)Organic Eggs $3.89
When I got home I read the ingredients on the juice boxes and though there is no added sugar I am leery of all of the additional "nutrients" that were added. I will let my kids have them as a treat in their lunches here and there but I don't plan on buying them again. I really need to start reading labels better, but my excuse this time was that my almost two year old did not want to sit in the cart so I spent a good deal of time chasing her around the store.
With today's trip I am about $6.50 under the $150 I allotted for the week. My husband has a buisiness trip next week so I don't see me spending a ton of money on food (feeding just the kids and I is so much easier- dare I say that they are not as picky as he is sometimes).
