Grocery Cart Roundup

Well I'm over budget by 6.47, because of the great deals at Dillons this week, I couldn't resist going back one more time. The good news is I've got lots of things for Marvin's lunches for the next several weeks and I found some great prices on meat this week. Our freezer is at maximum capacity so we better start eating some of it up.

I spent $56.47 on groceries this week. (Here's the menu for the week.)

Nice job Erica! I always struggle whether to go over budget when you can stock up, but it's always worth it when you have a pantry/freezer/fridge filled with food and don't have to go back and pay full price for stuff.

I love love love the fiber one bars. My fav. Strawberry/Almond. Deelish. They have unfortunately/fortunately? not sure which one...become my breakfast every morning to take on the road.

Thanks for letting us know about sweet Cora. She has been in my thoughts and prayers since you posted about her.

And sweet little Calvin. Cutest little man! And remind me why we don't live closer?

When I go over budget...I wish it was only by 6 dollars, usually if I know I am going over I just go all out. Not smart.
