This week was awesome! I was running low on coffee and just happened to see that my favorite brand, Starbucks, was on sale for $4.99 at Kroger (And it still should be until Tuesday!). Of course, I had to buy a bunch. Then John told me he found a hidden bag in the back of the pantry, so I now have bonus coffee, too!
Allison’s birthday party is this weekend *Sob*, so later this week I’ll be purchasing things for her party. It won’t be part of the grocery budget, but I’ll take some pictures anyway. Hint: It’s Paw Patrol themed and it’s going to be amazing. I’ll put a post out in a couple weeks on how to do one on a abudget, but for now, just know that it’s super easyto do dog-related food items.
I’m kind of stuck in a loop of buying lots of bulk items to stock us up again. This week it was baking soda and maple syrup; next week will probably be string cheese and honey. And toilet paper’s running low again. Thankfully, I’ve got another Swagbucks gift card coming in soon, so that’ll help a lot, just like this week! Here’s everything I bought and what we’ll be eating:
