Weekly Grocery Spending January 25-31

I went to the grocery store once this week, and spent $63.48.  I posted a few deals and pictures here. I thought that would be it for my totals this week, however my sister went to the grocery store as well.  She went last week for $.99 Hamburger Helper, produce, and veggie dip.  She decided to stock up quite a bit on Hamburger Helper, since we need to make a food pantry donation run soon anyway, and we like to give a variety of items.  By the time she bought the stuff we are donating, plus the stuff for home, the total was $48.24.  So we are over budget again this week!

Our weekly total this week was $111.72.

That is more than our weekly budget of $100 per week for our family of three adults, one child, two dogs, and a cat.  I better get this under control if I'm going to make decent progress on our vacation goal in February!

Our total spent on groceries for 2013 so far is $460.91.  

We are 4.5 weeks into the year, and our budget is $100 per week, so we are currently 10.91 over budget.

It's good that you're being so diligent with the savings in hopes of meeting a goal. I bet you get the vacation you want. Planning/saving is half the battle won. :)

We are over budget this month too. The coupons have been terrible in our area, but with the sales the stores usually have around Super Bowl time, we tend to stock up. It all evens itself out eventually though.
