Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at my weekly shopping trip. I promise it’s not all that interesting this week. I didn’t need much at all we ended up eating out with Family more than I planned last week and so we had a lot of food left over including a box of 20 lbs. of Oranges that we are eating away on. I only had about $40 left in the budget since Pay Day for our family is tomorrow when my hubby gets paid so I was trying hard to stick with what cash I had left and stay in budget.
I (Gasp) Didn’t use any coupons at Walmart :) All I purchased was Milk, Crystal Light (Because I run my blog on this stuff) ha! and Apple Juice, Milk and Lunch Meat. We had everything else we needed for the week. This was around $30 which blows my mind sometimes but it’s what we needed so hopefully next week I’ll be ready to do some more Big Shopping.
I did get to hit Walgreens this week and that’s where the other $10 out of pocket came from, most of this stuff at Walgreens was Free after Register Rewards but I only had $3.50 to start with so I did pretty good and I was happy to find the Razors and Cough Drops in stock. I also grabbed some of the Pacifiers for my Sister in Law who’s expecting in August :) I love buying fun little surprises as I go when I find them on sale, these will fill a basket of Baby Goodies some day at her shower! Speaking of which I’m very excited about becoming an Aunt, this will be my first little niece or nephew so you might find a few more baby posts showing up here or there once we find out if it’s a boy or a girl. My kids are getting big (2 and 4) So I am really excited to have a baby around again.
What did you buy this week?
I’m curious if you guys are interested in a Linky that lets you share your Shopping Trips with everyone??? I can try to set that up next week if you’re interested.
