Love-Leigh Thoughts and Ideas

Archive for March 2011

Do to some out of our control circumstances the grocery budget was non-existent last week much to my dismay. We spent WAY TOO MUCH $$$$  ! I’m not even going to tell you how much !  fail 😦  The worst part is Ryan and I don’t have any groceries !


The newest member of our little family. Apollo Durfee. We just adopted him from the Humane Society . He is only 2 months old and such a blessing to have !

Last week I decided to finally put a number on how much I am willing to spend our groceries each week. That number is $50 a week. I am really bad about only shopping once a month and when I do look out ! So this way I hope to cut down what I am spending at the store. To help cut down my costs and help me not over spend I’m going to only take cash with me to the store.

Here is a rundown of what I spent last week:

 CVS:Total before coupons : $39.00

After coupons : $3.32 oop ( Out of Pocket ) Plus I made $8 in ecb (Extra Care Bucks )

ALDI’S: Total oop $30.69

Total spent for the week: $34.01

$ to carry over into this week’s budget: $15.99 !!! Not bad for my first week !
