Another week, another grocery trip. This week I lucked out and was otherwise occupied, therefore Alex was all alone for this week's shopping. On Saturday we planned our meals and grocery list together. But after church on Sunday I escaped to my baby shower, and Alex tackled Wal-Mart all on his own.

After deciding what meals we would eat each night, we compiled our list of groceries based on what we had on hand, and what ingredients each recipe called for.
homemade deodorant and it got pretty pricey!
Needless to say I was very anxious to find out what our damage was the minute Alex picked me up from the baby shower. And the verdict is...$55! Yup, just $55 for all of that. The only items he wasn't able to find at Wal-Mart were carob chips and chile peppers. So for $55 we will eat well every single day and host a party for many of our friends on Saturday. I call that a budget success. If we can keep this up for two more weeks we might still come in under budget for October!
If you are working on your own grocery budget and have considered using Wal-Mart to price match here is our little tip:
Happy budgeting! Happy shopping!
By the way, if you are keeping track, so far we have spent $181 this month. That means we only have $119 left to spend. Wish us luck for the next two weeks!
