Click here to read my explanation on how we’re eating for $30 a week!

So, as I looked at the pictures of what I bought this week, I couldn’t help thinking, “Man, we look like fatties.” We really don’t eat junk every day, I promise! John’s birthday is Wednesday, and I wanted to make him an ice cream cake. And then Crystal Light was on sale, which John loves, and I had coupons, so I had to stock up. We’re able to eat out of our pantry and freezer again, and I have lots of frozen veggies, so we really are getting in some healthy stuff, I promise. =) With that being said, here’s what I bought this week.
