10-Jul 0.98 2 pkgs. Crackers w/ coupons
10-Jul 1.79 Split chili w/ onions and cheese at Wendy's for a date at a quiet place


I stayed within the right amount this week, even with going out to eat. We had a coupon for Famous Dave's that they didn't take here. I was planning on feeding all
of us for only $15, but because it didn't work and the kids were already looking forward to going out, I didn't have the heart to say no. We went to a Mexican place and had the cheapest thing on the menu - the all you can eat taco bar. Everyone was so full from lunch that they weren't too hungry for dinner. I let Amy choose where she wanted to go to lunch on Saturday, since I dragged her around to garage sales all morning. I thought it would be a 4 dollar taco trip or a 5 dollar Subway sandwich, but of course she chose one of the most expensive and yummy sandwich places in town. We still made it in our $100 and that is what matters. We made the best of a situation where we couldn't use the coupon and we all enjoyed being together which is the most important thing.
