I wanted to do a quick budget update! Steve and I have decided to up our existing $60/week grocery budget to $75/week for the next several weeks.
Reason: The man (yes, I am referring to my husband as “the man”) is training for a marathon and he won’t stop eating!!!
In an effort to keep him properly fueled throughout the remainder of his training and his actual running of the marathon, I need to buy more protein and carbs to keep him going! Yeah for the Larabar coupons…every little bit helps!
I’m also hoping to squeeze in a little more produce “stockpiling” as well…taking advantage of all these great summer produce deals.
This week’s trip mostly involved getting some ingredients like olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, some pasta, a package of meat, and some other “basics.” I thought I’d take advantage of an “off sale” week, and get some ingredients to add to the pantry!
Total spent at Kroger: $82.31
