Weekly Grocery Spending May 10-16
This week was a pretty expensive week for groceries at our house. My husband was with us this time, and it seems that we ALWAYS spend more when he is with us. Over the weekend we spent $238.96 at the commissary! Our cart was overflowing, though, and we had to pick up several more expensive items, including a bunch of meat, laundry detergent, and fabric softener.
In addition to that trip, my husband made two other trips to the commissary last Friday, and then yesterday. He just bought produce and tea the first time, so he spent $7.60. Then yesterday he bought produce, bread, and an ingredient that I forgot we needed for something on our menu plan, and spent $18.92.
Our weekly total this week was $265.48.
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 $1762.26.
We are 19.5 weeks into the year, and our budget is $100 per week, so we are currently $187.74 under our budget for the year.
I don't anticipate doing all that much grocery shopping for the next 2-3 weeks. Our freezers are pretty full, so it will mainly be for dairy and produce for a while I think. But then again, Elliott gets out of school next week, so I guess it depends on how many extra kids we have around at snack and meal times! :)
