I didn't have classes this morning because of a scheduled power interruption in my area, so I went to the wet market. Oh my gosh, I couldn't believe how much I miss going there! I must have been a wet market vendor in my past life.
I didn't realize that there was a power interruption scheduled for today. Had I known , I wouldn't have gone to SNR yesterday. I might have gone over budget when it comes to my everyday food, but I was thinking that I will just buy things and freeze them. All the meat that I bought earlier would last me two months, I guess. I think the only things I need to buy for the coming weeks are lettuce and my yogurt drink, so I think I'm okay with that. I stocked up on meat and other essentials since I rarely go to the wet market nowadays and it's way cheaper there than SM and SNR.
Here are the things I bought at SNR yesterday:
Lettuce (Unit Price Php 199.95/kg ($4))= Php 56.79 ($1.14)
Porkchop (Unit Price Php 182.95/kg ($3.66) Php 154.41 ($3.09)
TH Yogurt (1 pack contains 4 pcs. Php 62.95/pack)= Php 125.9 ($2.52)
Gardenia Whole Wheat Bread = Php 72 ($1.44)
Rug (BOGO Php 399.95 $ 8)= Php 799.9 ($16)
Note: I went back to SNR, even though I still have a lot of supplies because of those rugs. I have been using bath rugs for my stairs and I thought that I should upgrade. I think I got a good deal. I also grabbed some yogurt, though I still have five packs in my fridge. I think I won't be going back to SNR for a while.
What I bought at Ace Hardware:
Goodboy Dog Food 5kg = Php 280 ($5.60)
Mr. Muscle Stick On Bathroom deodorizer = Php 59.75 ($1.20)
Note: Pepper is so picky when it comes to food so I constantly change her food. I still have SNR dog food, but I had to buy this dog food so I can switch it for her every now and then.The Mr. Muscle Stick on Bathroom deodorizer is "love" for me. I love the lavender scent and I only found one stock available at Ace Hardware. I think it's not available at SM Hypermarket. I actually bought four more at La Nueva today since they are few pesos cheaper there. I figured that since I always use them, why not buy more.
Things I bought at White Gold:
Dog leash ( Original price is Php 219 ($4.38)) Php 197.10 ( I got 10 percent discount because I'm a member.)
Bread (Original price is Php 28 ($.56)) Php 16 ($.32) ( I got 40 percent off because it was 30 minutes before their closing time.)
What I got at SM:
Value 12 Rolls Bathroom Tissue Php 82. 50 ($ 1.65)
Baby Wipes Php 99.75 ($ 2)
Mi Goreng Noodles (Php 12.50 each ($.25) Php 25
Kopiko Cafe Blanca Php 63.50 ($1.27) Note: 10 pcs
Note: Baby Wipes are for Stark and Pepper. I always wipe their paws after they go out and before entering the house. The noodles I bought was just to satisfy my cravings,so I only bought 2. I also bought more Kopiko Cafe Blanca at La Nueva because it's way cheaper there.
Instead of eating out, I just opted to buy this:
Php 50 ($1)
La Nueva's prices are cheaper than regular grocery stores because they are some kind of a wholesale store, so I decided to just buy the essentials, things I know that I'm going to need and use:
Kopiko Cafe Blanca (30 pcs Php 168/pack ($3.36/pack)) Php 336 - 2 packs
Happy Sanitary Pads ( 8 pcs. Php 13.15/pack ($.26/pack) ) Php 52.60 -4 packs
Sisters Pantyliners (20 pcs. Php 16.25/pack ($.33/pack) ) Php 32.50- 2 packs
Brown Sugar (1/2 kilo) Php 18.50 ($.37)
Cooking Oil (1/2 kilo) Php 27 ($.54)
Downy Antibac (370g) Php 56.95 ($1.14)
Mr. Muscle Stick-on Lavender (Php 54/pack ($1.08) Php 216 - 4 packs
Bones (On sale Php 56/kilo ($1.12) Php 68.88 (For Stark and Pepper)
Porkchop (Php 164/ kilo ($3.28)) Php 221.07
Peanuts: Php 10 ($.20)
Kakanin: Php 20 for 5 pcs. ($.40 for 5 pcs.)
Php 6.25 each ($.13) = Php 75 one dozen ($1.50/dozen)
For my garden:
Scallion Php5 ($.10)
Onion Php 5 ($.10)
For my little garden:
Screen Php 97 per meter ($1.94 per meter)
Note: I have a little garden on my rooftop but Pepper always eat my veggies that I planted, so I decided to buy this.
|When you have inside dogs, you need a lot of rugs to keep their mud and water at bay.|
|I have been using this rug for my stairs for the longest time. I know, it's obviously a bath rug|
|The morning crowd before La Nueva opened. The earlier you get, the earlier you get out.|
The line is hell if you go there late.
|40 percent off all bread at White Gold. Their Spanish bread is delish|
