Grocery Spending & Budgeting Week 4

Well. It’s been a crazy week.

A crazy month, actually.

So crazy, in fact, that I busted my budget and will be breaking the rules by borrowing BELOW instead of side to side.

Yup. I spent $270.00 last week. ON GROCERIES!

Sunday was Aldi $87.00

Wednesday, after Mark had a little procedure done and was put on a soft food diet (nothing more than oatmeal consistency!) I stopped at Publix to pick up some “soft foods” … you know, oatmeal (which thankfully was buy one get one free!), mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, cottage cheese, ice cream, etc. Doesn’t matter that he just doesn’t want to eat, period. Spent $105 there. Oops.

Then I stopped at Trader Joe’s for a few things and ended up spending $78 … forĀ more macaroni & cheese and other “soft foods” … and Mark still doesn’t want to eat.


Fingers crossed this week will be better, news wise and budget wise!
