"What I Got For the Money" Wednesday

This is one of those months.  There are five shopping Tuesdays in April, so my money has to stretch over another week.  With JBF last week, let's just say I didn't do so well on my grocery shopping.  This week I decided to shop for two weeks, instead of one, and I plan to do the same thing in two weeks when I head to the store again.  Of course I'll have to go get bread and milk and any other emergencies (maybe some household), but meals and snacks are accounted for. That all being said, I didn't do too bad for two weeks.

If you divide that total of groceries out over two weeks and add the milk I still need to buy, that has me spending right at $78.00 for each week.  Maybe I should go back to shopping every two weeks???  We'll see how the next trip goes before I decide.
