Well I didn’t stay within my budget today very well. Hubby and everyone have been complaining that there is no snack food in the house and I also bought pop. But since I only buy pop once a month, my next shopping trip should be less. Taking Tommy shopping with me sure didn’t help out much either.
Pop, Snack and few groceries at Walmart = 41.82 (scrip cards used)
Aldi – $94.40
Festival – $39.55 (scrip card used)
Total Spent = $175.77 or $87.88 per week for a family of 5
My goal is to stay within $80.00 per week for our grocery. I genreally budget $100 a week and I use the extra for things I need during the week or if we happen to eat out once.
We will be moving to a family of 6 full time starting in August. I hope to keep the budget the same. We will see how that goes. Right now I am buying stuff for my BIL to make lunches to take to work. These are convenience foods I would not normally buy so that has increased our food expenditures.
