This Week's Ad Shopping

This week was thin for us-not a lot in the ads we needed or felt was marked low enough. It actually was kind of nice to head to the grocery store and spend all of $40 for the few items that were on sale that we wanted-sugar and brown/powdered sugar at Fareway. Otherwise, we just picked up a few other basic items we use weekly, like cream cheese and milk and headed on our way. And we aren't skimping on anything. Buying up when things are marked down does wonders for the bills. We still have around $100/wk budgeted for groceries, but with baby arriving soon, it is nice to have this thinner week to put some of that budgeted money towards either baby bills that have started to show up or towards some of the longer term food storage stuff we are hoping to start building.
