Grocery Budget

We did really well with staying within budget today.  We are under and have a bit to save for next time when I will need alot more meat.  I planned meals around the meat we have so I can clean out the freezer.

Sam’s Club – $114.88  for 14 items ($39.74 – was non-grocery: laundry detergent, toilet paper and cat litter)

Aldi – $ 76.00 for 42 items

Festival – $30.84 for 12 items

Kowalski’s – $3.99  for 1 items

Grand Total – $225.71

Food Total – $185.97/ 2.3 weeks = $80.86/week for a family of 5 or 6 depending on the day!
