Guys, I’m so proud of myself this week! I wanted to buy wipes at Sam’s Club because they were on sale until 9/20, and those were $14.36 plus tax. I also had to buy diapers; she wears cloth during the day but disposable at night because of her skin. So because of both of those, I had a small budget to work with for food. I’m happy to say I only spent $32.00 on food for us that’ll last the whole week, yay! And it’s all pretty healthy! Let’s see what I got.

Meijer

Huggies diapers: $7.99. I normally don’t ever buy name brand diapers. However, I only had to spend $7.77 more in baby products at Meijer to get a $10.00 reward for my next shopping trip, so I bought something as close to that as possible. Yay for a free ten dollars for next week!

Total: $8.57
