I can live with that.
As you can see this month was a very small spending week. Our new goal is to spend $125 or less for groceries per week for our family of 4.5 (our babysitting girl is here 3 days a week and my teen son brings friends by a few days a week). Last week I spent over the $125 in preparation for this week’s menu and because I had a little extra time. You can read that post here.
