Time to report how I did with my $25 a week grocery budget! We definately did not go over this week... mostly because I skipped shopping all together! It has been a very busy week- so I did not go shopping. That is definately one of the benefits to having a stockpile!
Daniel did go to the store Friday to pick up a few essentials & ingredients to make ice cream. He found whole milk on clearance because it was close to the expiration date-only $1.60 for a gallon! Here are the details of his trip:
Daniel's Trip to Broulims
(2) 1/2 gallons of Whole Milk $0.88 ea.
(2) Pints Whipping Cream $0.79 ea
1 Gallon 2% Milk $2.16
1 Dozen Eggs $1.24
Total Spent: $6.97
We have several bulk purchases we would like to make this month, so the extra money in our budget will go towards that. I have shopping trips planned to Broulims and Albertsons Monday to take advantage of a few of this weeks sales.
The Road to a Debt Free Education
As I mentioned in my monthly evalutation at the end of January, we have also been researching & experimenting with more ways to earn money on the internet while Daniel continues his job search. I will be posting more about our findings and new goals next week.
