Holy cow guys, get ready for a big post. As you know, we’re all human and we make mistakes. I made some mistakes this week! Basically, I had a Visa gift card with $32 left on it. I wanted to use some of it for the rest of the items we needed for a party we had Saturday, and the rest was going toward groceries/stocking up. And boy, there were some great items to stock up on! I also realized I forgot an item on my grocery list that I needed, and that was $4, so that messed up my budget too. Because of my stocking up, I decided to do a bunch of cheap meals this week that involve making my own bread/tortilla shells. Come see what I got (and messed up on)!

Wow you definitely worked out your shopping plan of attack! I used to be pretty organized, now I am lucky if we have enough milk in the fridge!
