We’re finally back from vacation and on a normal schedule! I haven’t posted my weekly shopping trips in 2 weeks, but now I’m back and ready to go! My pictures may look a little light food-wise, but that’s because I have most of the basics for the pizza already and I spent about a quarter of my weekly budget just on wipes and chicken at Sam’s Club so I couldn’t get extra stuff. Also we’re having a get-together at our house with church friends, and I’m buying the stuff for that later this week and using a gift card so it won’t count for groceries.

This is impressive! I spend close to $150 a week on groceries for a family of 3. I really need to get some coupons.

It's interesting to see how you budget. I like to see how you make use of deals, such as the Kroger's download.
