First, here’s the produce. I didn’t need a lot this week, as we have some left from last week. Every so often, I purposely buy a little less produce than usual so that we will be forced to eat what’s already in the fridge.
And here’s the rest of my food.
After my less-than-stellar over budget shopping last week, it occured to me that I wasn’t quite as over as I thought. I’d neglected to remember that $2.35 of my Aldi total was for a bag of Skittles that Lisey was buying with her own money (I paid for them with the idea that she would pay me when we got home). So, I’m $16.03 over budget for the month, not $18.38.
So, how did I do this week? I spent $47.31 at Aldi and $17.79 at Weis. That is only $65.10, which is $14.90 under budget. Woohoo!
This means that I’m only $1.13 over budget for the month, and I can totally live with that, even if I don’t make it up next week. Whew.
Lunches will be yogurt smoothies, bread, fruit, raw veggies, and leftovers as necessary.
Here’s what we’re eating at dinnertime:
- Instead of breakfast for dinner, we’re having a snacky meal…fruit, veggies, cheese, dip, and probably some jello, which will thrill my children greatly, as jello is something of a rarity around here! :p

- English Muffin bread
- Grilled Hamburgers
- Homemade buns
