Some friends of mine and I are doing another grocery challenge this month, and I signed up for $80/week again. Unfortunately, I’m over by $5. Gah!
I spent $40 at Aldi, and then at Weis I spent $45. I would have been on target, but the frozen shrimp, which normally comes in one pound bags, was only sold in two pound bags($10 instead of $5). So, I had to buy two pounds, and that $5 put me over. Of course, it’s not a big problem, because now I have enough shrimp to last us for a while, but I’m still sort of annoyed.
The reason I bought so much Cottonelle is that a deal was going on where you got $5 off when you bought so many. I suppose if I hadn’t done that, I’d have been way under budget even with the shrimp. But, at least I won’t have to buy it again for a while.
