Have you ever had shopping weeks that just didn’t go as planned? That was totally me this week! I had to make so many changes last minute! First of all, I bought items to make something for a brunch Sunday. Then I decided to buy colored pencils for an awesome adult coloring book John bought me. For little things like that, I try to take them out of the grocery budget so we don’t have to pull from anything else! Then we found out we were out of bulk soap for the kitchen sink, so I had to add that to the list as well. Before I knew it, we were suddenly way over budget! I took a look at my list again and decided to take off one of the dinners because I realized I could make lasagna rollups with the leftover noodles and sauce I used for lasagna Thursday. Hurray for free meals! After taking off the ingredients for the other meal, we looked okay!
