Weekly Grocery Spending June 14-20

Meals are starting to get interesting at my house now.  Our upright freezer will most likely be completely emptied this weekend, so we can defrost it.  The chest freezer is still over half full, though, so we are nowhere near done with our emptying them out challenge.

Last week we went to the commissary once and spent $10.99, and to Walmart and spent $14.84 on groceries.  This included yogurt, milk, fresh produce, and peanut butter.

We spent $25.83 on groceries this week.

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 $1899.90.  

 We are 24.5 weeks into the year, and our budget is $100 per week, so we are currently  $550.10 under our budget for the year.

Parents Are So Annoying!

We have had a pretty busy summer so far. It has included lots of time with friends as well.  Yesterday Elliott had one of his best friends over to play.  They were playing in the backyard, and I don't think either of them heard me come back outside.  The very first thing I heard was "That's too bad.  Parents can be so annoying!"  I thought it was pretty funny.  They were taking about Elliott getting grounded from watching PG 13 movies and any cartoons with violence in them, after implying he was going to try one of the moves.

The conversation continued, and included comments about parents not understanding about cool things.  And then my kid said "Sometimes my mom is cool, but sometimes she forgets what life was like when she was young and stuff was fun." haha
