I apologize for not sharing last week. My mom was in town. We were running late at the store…because we kept losing each other…and calling each other…and ended up rushing home to get the middle boy onto the bus for school. Then I hit the road and
I spent $83-ish last week.
So this week…it was time to hunker down and get back on track for the month…not wanting to exceed $80/week for the month. Because I spent so much the first week, I knew I needed to spend as little as possible this week to maintain the balance!
So the kids and I went store hopping yesterday morning…
I wanted in on the 1o for $10, get 11th free deal. Plus they had a great price on tortillas and delimeat.
