My Weekly Spending = Not so Good
Total Spent - $86.08
Total Saved w/Coupons - $125.47
Total Saved w/Sales - $94.71
I big chunk of my spending this week went to buy fresh produce. I bought 10# of blueberries for $23, a watermelon for $3.50, 1/4 peck of peaches for $3.75, bananas for $2.00, celery for $1.99, dz sweet corn for $2.50 and 1# fresh green beans for $1.25. I spent close to $37 alone on produce. I actually don't feel that guilty for going over budget because I know I was spending money on wholesome food. I had also made up my mind that just because I'm on a budget I'm not going to deny my children the privilege of eating fresh produce when it's in season. I wish I could say that the blueberries will last us several weeks. We'll be lucky if they last us a whole week. My kiddos absolutely love blueberries and beg for them all the time. It was also a big week at Kroger and I wanted to stock up on Kraft cheese and Gatorade since it was a good deal. Hopefully next week I'll be back on track.
How are you doing with your spending? Staying on budget or finding hard to with all the fresh fruit that's in season?
