Last weekend I spent $78.00 at the grocery store, which left $22.00 for the week. I sent Kevin to the store last night for bread, because the store was not stocked when I was there. Four loaves of whole wheat bread is about $6.00. He spent $35.00. But it’s okay. In the month of December we’ve spent $113.00 on food, by this time we would normally have spent at least $200. Maybe more. So we’re good. And this is a practice month!
This is going to be confusing. Yesterday’s menu plan was for this week. Our grocery store flyer came yesterday in the mail, so I’m posting next week’s shopping plan. Okay, so not all that confusing. lol
