Ok. my grocery budget from now until what looks like July 28th was $124.00.
I say was, because I have spent it already. We used some of it to buy snacks to ride home on the train, and to bring home some scrapple to my husband. (we can't really find that here in Florida)
My husband did spend 7.00 at the grocery store before we got home, so i guess our grocery total is 131.00 so far.
I thought it might be fun, and educational to keep track of what we eat and see how far we can make it all go. Now when I shopped I went to a grocery store that was a little more pricey, I had to go where I could get a ride to because our van broke down the day after we got back. (Thank you for the ride Aunti Lori!!!!) I did earn .10 in fuel points for the purchases.
Monday 20th (day we got home)
Dinner: hot dogs chopped up in macaroni and cheese for dinner. (we already had the hot dogs and mac n cheese from a previous purchase.)
bkfst: Pancakes (choc chips for those who wanted them)
lunch: cups of soup or sandwiches

Dinner : Roasted one chicken leg quarter and put meat over salad items from grocery trip.
dessert: brownies, chocolate cake, Popsicles (all from a previous purchase.) Whatever snacks we brought home from train ride were gobbled up too...I was sick the first day we were back so nothing got rationed or supervised.
We drank water, crystal light, hot tea, coffee, and kool aid left from train ride as well.
It already looks like we are going to need more bread, toilet paper, and milk. We will see. Did you have anything good this week?
