This week I spent a lot of time studying the ads more making sure I got the best deal. I went to Kroger at the beginning of the week to make sure I got the Free Friday Downloads before they expired. Then we went again last night to get the Fri/Sat deal and some other things we needed.
We did not go to the farm market this week because the apples we love are not in season yet. This is the first year that our apple trees in our backyard have fruit on them and I counted 8 apples.
I want to keep our grocery budget at $100.00. This week I've been more successful. I always forget to clarify how many people live here permanently and who we have her to babysit. We have 3 people that live here (youngest daughter buys some of her groceries) and we babysit two grandchildren (although now they will be in school most days).
We also want to eat healthy so our grocery bill is a little higher than we are used to. Like my husband says, "our health is our wealth."
