#1 The Weather is my #1 budget buster. We've endured some winter storms (ice, cold, and snow) these past couple of weeks that have at times kept us home bound. Believe me weather exhaustion has set in.
The times we have gotten out, we've just picked up a gallon of milk here and there. At each stop we were thinking we will just get a few things. Those little trips cost us more in the end. Yep, boredom, exhaustion, and milk are big budget busters!
#2. Watching grandchildren because of the weather and school is cancelled. In the last two weeks they have only visited their school twice! I'm pretty sure they will be going all of June now.
Oh, how we we love them and we love to feed them! Gotta make sure they grow you know. What you need donuts, oh yes you do! They may just be a tiny bit spoiled.
Maybe I'm missing warmer weather or better yet I have a deficiency. Oh, that deficiency thing sounds like a good excuse. Listen you will pay for this stuff and I did (even in the marked down section). It was good.
I've totaled it up and we spent a good $75.00 this week. A far cry from the $20 in stocking up on milk and bread that I had hoped to spend this off week in grocery shopping. Hopefully next week I'll straighten up because according to the weatherman we are in for more of this wonderful weather next week. I have to stay strong.
How's your grocery shopping this week and what are your biggest budget busters?
