Notes: There are a few splurges on this list… the root beer is for root beer floats- which Dad and the kiddos decided was a great idea. The Philly cooking crème and Mexican cheese are splurges for a new recipe for next week. I’m not sure about the cooking crème- that’s expensive- hope the recipe is worth it. Country Time and cran-pom juice-- special for lunch with my sister and a dear friend. Corn chips are another Dad and kids purchase- to go with our chili on Sunday (instead of corn bread). I ended up spending a bit more than I had planned on this week (yet still under budget) because of Meijer’s 10 for 10 sale. Some of those items were on my Aldi list for next week but the price was better with this sale.
For those keeping track—I came in $28.31 under budget this week. In three weeks we’ve spent $145.77 on groceries. This has allowed for a total of $79.23 to be pocketed.Yahoo!
