I’ve been trying to keep more healthy snacks in the house because I find that I’m eating more periodically throughout the day! Carrots and hummus are on that list, and I’ve got healthy banana muffins in the freezer for dessert. Overall, I’m happy with this week! That extra $11.00 really helped, and I was able to stock up on coffee and buy more fresh produce.

Did you get any good deals this week? Share with us below!

Great shopping week! I love getting great deals. I also loved that you had some healthier food choices in your weekly meals and snacks. So many times I see these posts about how to spend $50 a week but it's full of pre-packaged, highly processed food that is super unhealthy. People can buy healthy food without breaking the bank and I appreciate your post showing that! Great job! Thanks for sharing!

I appreciate your kind words! I'm slowly incorporating more whole foods into our menu. It's really tough, but I love having all this fresh produce in the house!

I can't believe you got all that healthy food for so little. We can't seem to spend less than $125 a week to feed my family of three. That's amazing!

Oh wow! Cost of living may have an impact on that too. =)
