Saturday Budget Check

This was a pretty good week!  I am still recovering from my lack of shopping last month.  We decided to go ahead and buy the items we needed.  We ended up using half of our monthly budget this week.  We were able to stock up on some good sales, so I think we can still keep it to $100 for the month.  Hopefully we will just have fewer shopping trips.  As you can see, we got a lot of Knorr pasta sides.  We went through a lot of our instant meals last month while we were moving, so we needed to stock up again while they are on sale!

We live really close to Winco now- which is good and bad.  Winco definately has the best price on eggs ($.89 a dozen!), milk, and produce.  It also has good prices on bulk items.  The problem is that it is often tempting to buy more than you need, because of all the good deals.  I am still working on that part.

Total Spent: $52.67
Total OYNO for Next Week: $5
