I spent about $65 this trip. I feel like I bought a lot of groceries this week, but I didn’t spend as much as I thought. I couldn’t get all of my ingredients at one store, so I ended up having to go to 3 different stores; But I went all in one trip, and they were all within a mile of each other anyway.

Items in green are organic, items in blue aren’t classified as organic but are advertised as hormone-free, antibiotic-free, preservative-free or some combination of those. Whole Foods is the specialty natural foods grocery, while Stop ‘n Shop is just a regular average giant grocery store.
