It’s the start of a new year, and we’re starting off right! We are STILL finding ourselves eating leftovers from the previous week, and we’ve gone out to eat a couple times this week so our dinners are being pushed aside. I only had to buy stuff for like 2 meals and I had a ton of money left over for stocking up! This really isn’t typical of us, but now that the holidays are over things will start to settle down a bit and my grocery budget and list will look a lot more normal. Let’s see what I got!
