So this weekend I came down with the flu, all I have to say is BLAH!!!! So as you can imagine, without a list at the grocery store spells DISASTER! I had a few things in my head but the rest, not so much.
I have come to realize though that I don't think we will be able to get our grocery budget to the $50.00 a week unless my Husband is out of work. He takes two protein bars to eat everyday to work. While some would say take leftovers, that wouldn't work for him. I've tried!! He wants the protein bars because he can eat them while he drives and his hand don't have to touch the bar because of the wrapper. While we spend about $18.00 a week for those, it is better than him stopping to buy fast food everyday. So our budget would have to be $65.00-$70.00 a week. I know that is seems like I have an excuse every week, but it's all trial and error.
So with that all off my chest, here's the bad part. Drum roll!!!!!!!!........ We spent 122.15!!! Now the good part, we will only need to get produce, milk, and protein bars next week.
