Grocery talk

之前喺另外一個discussion提過一個sample grocery list (for 2 people),好多都覺得唔可行,不如喺度繼續討論啦。
Sample grocery shopping list (1 week supply):
pre-slice meat about $4/pack. (1 pack per day) $28
3 onion  $2
3-4 tomato $2
bean sprout $1
Veggie (3 pack) from T&T (half pack per day) $7
Fruit (e.g. 7 orange ~$5)
bread $3
total: $48
the remaining $2 is for "柴米油鹽"

Bread is actually for breakfast, lunch I have left over from dinner the day before.
For fruit, $5 can actually get you more oranges if it's small one. Assume $0.69/lb, medium size orange is about 0.6-0.7lb. So $5 can get you 10-12 oranges.

Some people mention "soup". One 火炭牌青紅蘿蔔湯 pack is about $6.99. It's good enough for 3-4 days for the two of us. Of course, if the soup is fancy with whole chicken, pig bones, then it's different. But I consider those soup pack pretty decent.

For meat budget ($4/day) I am giving it rather generous. If I buy lean ground pork, it's $3.99/lb and usually cook 0.5lb per day, even cheaper.

One week sample grocery list 2 (for 2 people):
pre-slice meat about $4/pack. (1 pack per day) $28
3 Onion $2
Mushroom $3
Fruit $5
Veggie $7
Bread $3
Total $48
the remaining $2 is for "柴米油鹽"

soup: 芥菜滾瘦肉 or 節瓜滾瘦肉
個瘦肉會搵豉油爆番香,又有一樣送。

I approximately spend 20-30 bucks per week usually but I spend more if I buy seafood or rice.

Richmond public market啲菜通常都平啲,啲生果都幾新鮮,不過就無得pay by credit card。我就覺得aberdeen 啲菜都唔錯。肉就通常去yaohan買。

we eat steak maybe once per month, that is already $12 a day from safeway (about $6 per piece of prime rib)
live tilapia fish cost about $10 too.
you are already not going out to eat, and u cannot eat some higher quality food at home?

also if u add the soup $6.99 for 3~4 days. u are already over 50.

$50 seems impossible for us.

I rarely eat beef now. And I don't like steak that much. I do buy a slice of fish once a while, that would trade off other meat budget so probably just had luncheon meat that day w/ the fish.
The soup budget comes from veggie (because the I would eat the veggie there as well, example of carrot soup), and the meat from the veggie.
Sometimes I bought fish paste (鯪魚漿), that makes soup w/ 節瓜 as well.

Oops...I mean "meat from the soup"...not meat from the veggie

My grocery shopping pattern is similar to yours.  More veggie, more fruit, less meat, some fish paste, no beef.  I shop veggie in Aberdeen and the rest in Yaohan.  Most probably, I shop on Fri after work or Sat afternoon.  And, I check the T & T website before going to Yaohan.

See you there!
