You know those weeks that nothing seems to go your way? The week that everyone needs something and you have a ton of places to be? That was our last two weeks! The paycheck got eaten by vet costs, pool costs and auto costs! So, because I'm stubborn and won't touch my emergency fund, I got creative and barely went grocery shopping. I bought what was a need and used our lovely (shrinking) stockpile.
I didn't get a picture this week
5 dozen eggs-$6.19
4 loaves of bread-$9.88
ice cream-$3.98 (true, not a need, but I "needed" it this week. lol)
colby jack cheese-$5.55
Just a bit over 1/2 my normal budget. I think we can do this again next week and then I will be back to our normal shopping. It's been an adventure and the kids and I have got creative with our meals. No one is hungry and we are using the internet to find some new recipes to try.
