Supermarket Saturdays



It's that time again! Supermarket Saturday! This week's menu is going to be a little different because Tuesday is my birthday, so my parents will be taking us out to dinner, so I don't have to plan a meal for that night, and also don't have to include it in our eating out budget.

Once again, we managed to stick to our $100.00/week food budget this last week! The total amount of money left over was $1.27. Man, we really cut it close, but we made it! :) So....without further ado....here is next weeks menu!

I should really do my menu's again. :) I usually go through my cookbooks see what looks good, buy the ingredients I don't already have, then cook it when I feel like it. :) I'm going to make out a meal plan like you do and see how much money I save. Thanks for the inspiration! I usually spend about $50-75 bucks a week on groceries..including formula and diapers. I usually just set up a monthly budget for food and other stuff. I like the idea of weekly budget. I'll let you know how it goes.
