  • Honey $20.98 – K bought one at Costco and I thought it was not for the house, so I bought another!
  • Tabasco $3.99
  • Tortillas $5.19

really want to do better. I keep forgetting that a new week starts on Sunday so we just go shopping on Saturday. I guess it doesn’t matter, we just need to do better with only getting what we need and having a plan. I didn’t really have a plan this week, and I still don’t. We will just try to use up what we have before we go shopping again.

So the total that we spent this month is a whopping $966.45. Per week that is $241.61. I think that is way too much and we can do a lot better! I am really going to be a stickler and we aren’t buying anything that isn’t on the shopping list, and I am going to plan out meals and stick to it.
