Shopping trip 7/3-7/10


OK went to 3 places but took 1 picture. I thought shopping today would be easiest with the Holiday weekend and because our store was having a 2 day sale that started today. It was CRAZY!! But I did stick to my list.

Our store had whole chickens on sale that were a good price but didn't look good so I passed. I had roasted chicken on the menu one night so I will make a roast turkey breast instead (that was already in the freezer at home). See post below for my menu to use todays purchases.

I am upping my grocery budget to $400 a month for the summer due to having the kids home for 3 meals a day 7 days a week plus snacks.

That is $100 per week or $20 per week per person.
