(We have been looking all over for these.)


In addition to the above purchases we will be buying 2 dozen farm fresh eggs, 2 sour creams, 1 Gallon of milk, 1 more bag shredded cheese, 2 Pepsis, 4 7 ups, 3 Gatorades and 3 Cases of Water.

This should total approximately: $40-$60 depending on where they are purchased.  Keeping this week’s cost at: $75-$95.

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.
