Grocery Budget !

Posted on: March 10, 2011

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 !
