$50 Grocery Challenge: Spent $48.72

It has been a while since I have posted my shopping trips. I find that when I do, I am much more careful about staying in my budget than if I don't. For those that are new, the following groceries aren't all we will be eating for the next week. I have eggs, fruit, veggies, meat, etc. from past weeks that we will eat. I also make my own bread. I won't use the whole 50 pound bag of flour this week. It will carry over for the next month or two. So, when you see a picture of groceries for the week, don't think that our food is limited to just what is in the picture for the week. I have cans, wheat, flour, sugar, etc. that has built up over time that I buy when the price is low and stock up. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or e-mail me at mom@spendwise.org.
