This week I knew we were going to have to spend more money, but it was much lower than I expected.
W needed half & half for his morning coffee. I prefer to buy the larger container which was finally in stock. That was $5.19 and should last him 2-3 weeks.
Our main grocery shop was $13. We bought:
cream of chicken soup
frozen mixed vegetables
Then I fell victim to a coupon deal on 20oz sodas. W has a habit of picking one up while he is out running errands. I decided it was better to buy them ahead of time at a deal. We got six of those for $6.40. Not super cheap, but much better than $1.79-$1.89 each.
Total for the week: $24.59
Total for the year: $80.41
I am just over my hoped for $20/week spending. I am hoping to keep February's budget low since we still have quite a bit in the pantry and freezer.
