Wow, I had such a busy weekend. From running a 5k to volunteering at church pretty much all weekend, I’m pretty tired! It also gave me limited time for grocery shopping, so I only visited two stores this week. I usually like doing all my shopping on Saturday mornings, because John’s with us and it makes things so much easier. On busy weekends like this, though, we usually go to Aldi on Friday nights, and then I’ll visit Meijer/Kroger early Saturday morning. Like, 6:00 AM early. I’m totally thankful for 24-hour stores!

I didn’t have to buy a whole lot for dinners this week. We ended up going to Kings Island last Sunday and had dinner there, and we also had a lot of leftovers so we had a second leftover night. This meant we had two extra dinners to carry over into this week, which is always helpful! I love when that happens. Here’s what I bought this week.

I just found your website through pinterest with your $37 weekly budget. We keep a monthly budget of $160 for groceries with lots of coupons and deals shopping for our family of three. We make lots of different meals and still have a variety of food that my family loves. The hardest part is when you are super busy but it looks like you did great this week!! Glad that I found you and can't wait to check out some of your posts :)
