We were out of town over the weekend, which helped with the food budget this month. Fortunately, we managed to go through all our perishable items before we left, so nothing went bad while we were gone.
Of course, that meant I needed to go to the store almost immediately after we got back. My husband took Monday off as well, so I was able to go to the store without the little ones in tow.
I went to both Aldi's and Dillon's and tried to only buy what we absolutely needed.
At this point, I have a little over $21 left in my grocery budget for the month. With just one week to go, this should be doable. I just need to remain focused and not give into any excuses to go ahead and spend a little extra.
