December 29th Spending

Total spent... $40.86 on groceries.

When I saw the total my stomach sank...that's the most we've spent in awhile on food. But then hubby brought it to my attention that we have $50/week budget for groceries, so we were still almost $10 under, which is really good! We spent about $12 on chicken and turkey burger which will last us at least a few weeks.

I also found this very cool consignment shop. I don't think I have been in one since I was little, but apparently one opened up in a shopping center not too far from where we live. The clothes they have are almost all name brands and stylish for a very reasonable price! I can't wait to browse the racks when I need something new :-)

I am planning on hitting the gym tonight, so if I don't end up going please get on my case tomorrow!

Hi there! I just found your blog and I have a question. There probably is a simple answer - but still I must ask.

You did awesome on your grocery spending. I am ashamed to admit what I spend. At the end of your post you mentioned that you are going to the gym. Do you pay for that gym membership?

God Bless....

Hi Dana! Thanks for stopping by! Lowering your grocery bill takes time. Making a list and not buying anything unless it's on the list helps a lot.

Yes, we do pay for a gym membership, it's $19.99/month.
