Still working on staying out of the grocery as much as I can! I'm going back to the envelope system from groceries this month. Instead of adding money each week, I put it all in on this weekend. We'll see how that plays out. I got my big trip to Trader Joe's out of the way, and hit the asian/indian food stores to do the bulk of our stocking up. I still need to hit Aldi for oatmeal, tomatoes, and produce, but I don't see any problems with staying under budget this month -- our pantry is looking pretty good. =) Which is good because once the envelope is empty -- it's EMPTY!
Some of the best deals I scored this weekend, 4lb bag of cream of wheat for $.99, 5lb bag black eyed peas $3.99, 3lb onions for $.69 just to name a few. Did I mention how much I love ethnic food stores? =)
Muffins, cereal bars, crackers
