Our Grocery Shopping Trip for this Past Week 1/25/20- a Lower Spend January!


So, you ask, how are we doing on that no or low spend January?  Definitely not perfect.  We are running a lower spend January for sure but not as well as previous years.  We are saving money though and for that I'm proud of us.  Next year my hope is to get very serious again.

We went to Kroger and we had a little problem passing up the good deals and the clearance this week at Kroger.
