First the grocery list, Bevson bought the following items, which came to a total of $47.00, some of the items have individual prices and they are noted.
1 Rotisserie chicken,
Package of Turkey dogs
Bag of Salad
5 lb bag of potatoes - 99 cents
carton of grape tomatoes
carton of eggs
quart of goats milk
6 cans of cat food
box of cat food in pouches,
carton of ice cream
Of course, many of these items simply aren't available, and I'll try and show some alternatives. Also it being Good Friday I can't run down to the store and check prices. All of these prices come from recent grocery slips.
1 Rotisserie chicken - we don't have, and the last time I looked there wasn't a whole frozen chicken at the store. So a box of breaded frozen fried chicken (five pieces) runs $16.49
Package of Turkey dogs - also unavailable, run of the mill mystery meat hotdogs are $3.99
Bag of Salad - $5.49
4 apples - For snacking we usually get a 3 lb bag of macs which run $9.99, but when I buy individual apples it is Granny Smiths for pie. I usually buy 7 apples, which run in the neighbourhood of $10.00, so four would be approximately $5.70
5 lb bag of pototoes - $8.29
Carton of grape tomatoes - We do get cherry tomatoes from time to time $5 something. Two smallish tomatoes bought yesterday (295 grams) $2.71
eggs 18 for $6.25, so a dozen are around $4.00
goats milk - Okay that'll never happen. 2 litres of 2% is $4.15. We get 2 litres of Soyamilk for $8.99
Cat food I have no idea so I'll just leave it out.
Carton of Ice cream 1 litre is $12.99
So the total, without the Cat Food is $66.10. I'm actually surprised that it is only 40% higher. Well I guess a little more without the Cat stuff factored in. Mom, if you're reading this, please send food.
Update: As the store was open today I got to check the price of cat food. A tin of cat food is $2.85, so six would be $17.10. A box of cat food with 12 "packets" is $10.49. Thus a revised total for bevson's shopping list up here would be $93.69, or 99% higher.
