Project: Food Budget (Week 7)

At last check, we were at $130 last week.  Over the weekend, we ordered pizza, adding $12.  So…a grand total of $142 for the week.  Our guests very graciously treated us to dinner and breakfast out.  Thank you, Kevin & Trish!

I am thrilled with my grocery shopping this week.  I’m doing a little happy dance right here on the lovely peacock couch (You can see it in my last post).  Despite having to buy 80 dinner rolls for a pot luck meal at my husband’s university, I spent only $81 for our weekly grocery stop.  I can’t really say how this happened.  Yes, we did go to the pot luck, but I still spent $15 on dinner rolls which is more than I usually spend on a week-day dinner.  I am planning a crustless quiche with Canadian bacon and colby, and on another night, we are having spaghetti with garden-style sauce.  Both of those meals are inexpensive.  Last week, I bought a big bag of potatoes on sale, so I’m using them in several side dishes this week.  I guess small changes are making a difference.

We spent $5 on a quick snack stop bringing the week to only $86.

Week 1 + Week 2 + Week 3 = $352 so far
