$50 Grocery Budget Week #3

We have a local salvage store that I shop at once a month.  It's in the town about 10 miles away so when I'm in town I stop in.  It's also where we stock up on our gum supply.  The gum in not in the pictures because the kids had all ready put it away.  We also had to pick up milk.

$19.52


That puts me over budget on week two by $12.53.  Since I was under budget on week one, I'm still under budget by $5.70 for the month.

Here is what I bought for week 3.  Since Thanksgiving is this week you would think not cooking a couple of full meals would help with the budget.  That's not the case.  For our family dinners I take certain things each year.  I don't have some of the ingredients in the stock pile.  It means spending more money to take my dishes.

Total Spent $50.93

I'm already 93 cents over budget.  I still need to pick up mushrooms & sourdough bread for Thanksgiving meals.
