Grocery Shopping total for this week 12/1/18!

The links in this post may contain affiliate links.   When you order from something from one of my links I receive a small commission with no extra cost to you.  You can read my  full disclosure policy  and privacy policy here.   Thanks so much for helping support Vickie's Kitchen and Garden! 


We came within $2.00 of our grocery budget for this month!   I'm thinking I'm getting better at this and maybe someday I could handle going even lower.  Do you guys carry a calculator when you go grocery shopping?   I don't but I'm thinking I should and that would help me with the grocery bill too!  It's something to think about!  

If you have never read my grocery totals before here is a little Information:

I want to keep our grocery budget at $100.00. 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."
