Weekly Grocery Spending April 19-25

Last Friday I finally made it to the commissary for a grocery shopping trip, where the primary concern wasn't keeping it light enough to easily carry with weight lifting restrictions in place. :)  We hadn't done much grocery shopping for a few weeks, so it would have been easy to go overboard, but now that spring is finally showing up in North Dakota, we don't feel like we need to keep our pantry as well stocked.

Elliott went with me, since he got out of school super early that day (he was dismissed after his performance in the music fest before 10 am).  We got most of the stuff on the list, although we did miss a few things.  We had a mishap with accidentally deleting a whole section of the grocery list, instead of just one specific item.

However, we ended up spending $146.78 at the commissary.  Which is really great in my opinion, since it had been so long.

Then over the weekend we spent $52.07 at Walmart on pet food, produce and yogurt.

 Our weekly total this week was $198.95.

Our weekly budget is $100 per week for our family of three adults, one child, two dogs, and a cat.

Our total spent on groceries for 2013 so far is $1395.65.  

We are 16.5 weeks into the year, and our budget is $100 per week, so we are currently  $254.35 under our budget for the year.

Still under budget, woot!

Do you have a CD for your Pete the Cat book? We got ours and it had a disc tucked in there (Scholastic weekly reader).

I'm happy to burn you a copy and mail it your way if you don't have one. The song on there is fun. :) Just shoot me w/an email w/your address if you want it and I'll get it out in the mail. :)

It's amazing how much pet food can take a chunk out of the grocery budget. That's what always kills ours!
