I have given August's budget some thought....
I am going to really challenge myself for this month's budget!
I would like to keep my total grocery bill under $250!
Yeah, you read that right! LOL
However, we are going to be on vacation for one week so it's not *quite* as challenging as it sounds.
Here's my shopping from this week. I see us possibly heading to the farmer's market on Saturday since Papa is out of yogurt. Other than that, I am done shopping for the week.
Truthfully, I wasn't planning on going shopping at all this week but I was out of a few necessities (like dish detergent) so I also cherry picked the loss leaders while I was there.
Big Y: $44.07
1 can of whipped cream
1 lb deli American cheese
3 gallons Friendly's ice cream (on sale @1.99 each)
3 boxes Entenmann's chocolate chip cookies (Papa's favorite and Buy1/Get 2 Free $4.29 for all)
1 family sized box of Wheat Thins
1 box Ortega taco shells
1 packet taco seasoning
1 bottle Hershey's syrup
1 bottle chocolate sprinkles
1 bottle Ajax dish detergent
3 bags UTZ chips (Buy 1/Get 2 Free $4.29 for all)
1 loaf store brand bread
2 store brand Mio type water enchancers
1 lb carrots
Total left in August grocery budget: $205.93
No doubt this will be interesting!
