In the never-ending saga of trying to feed six adults and not bankrupt our family, I am more encouraged today.
After I spent a crazy $240 last week due to poor planning and purchasing convenience foods, I was able to lower that to $174.14 this shopping trip. That’s still $50 over our previous budget of $125/week and makes me uncomfortable, but I was able to purchase lots of fresh produce, dairy products and meat — and my people are not going hungry.
Weekly Total: $174.14
August Monthly Total: $700.32
(Whew, reading that monthly total gives me heart palpitations but hopefully I can do a little better next month.)
