What to Cook for Dinner?
This week I didn’t do too much shopping but I did spend enough money. I just went to Fred Meyer and Winco Foods this week. I am switching the day I will be going to Everyday Deals as the employees at Everyday Deals let me know that Mondays are a better day for produce now. So I will be going on Mondays in hopes of getting a better selection of produce to choose from. So I didn’t shop at Everyday deals or Franz bread this week.

I finally remembered to purchase some popcorn kernels. I had forgotten them at the store at least the last three times I shopped. I purchased the popcorn out of the bulk foods and put them into a bag. The bag stayed together just fine until I pick the bag of them up to place them in my shopping bag. Then the seam on the bottom of the plastic sack gave way and the popcorn just ran out all over the conveyor belt. The cashier was nice enough to re-weigh the bag after some spilled out and credit me the difference.

My total spent on groceries this week was $85.88 which is about $10 over budget for this week. I am glad I was under budget last week. That how our grocery budget seems to go under budget a few weeks and over budget one week.
How did you do on your grocery shopping. Did you stay within your budget?
