So we’ve come to the end of the month. Honestly, I can’t believe it’s gone by so quickly. It seems like we just started. But it’s been fun, and I hope it’s been a fun peek into our kitchens for you!
Over the weekend we picked up a few more groceries to see us through until the end of the month. We’ll be doing our big grocery shopping for April on Saturday. While we still have plenty of meat and pantry staples on hand, we’re definitely running low on other things.
Here’s what we picked up over the weekend.
- 1 lb. butter ($2.99)
- Dozen eggs ($1.49)
- Gallon milk ($1.99)
- Dried fruit ($3.29)
- 5 Pears ($1.89)
- 2 lb. grapes ($1.98)
- 8 oz. block cheddar cheese ($1.00)
- Juice ($1.49)
- Vanilla ice cream ($2.50)
- 2 liter Root Beer ($0.79) ~ Those last two were for Root Beer Floats on family movie night
Total spent on the weekend: $19.41
Total spent this month: $408.50
Total left in monthly budget: $41.50
I think I might apply some of that overage to stock up on a few hams while they’re on sale. My husband is a huge fan of ham and I’m a huge fan of having a bunch of it in the freezer! We’ll see though. I can’t have ham overtaking all of my freezer space.
Also over the weekend, I made 12 sausage, cheese and biscuit sandwiches. The kids have been eating those for breakfast this week and they’ve been a big hit.
Our two older kids begin Spring Break on Friday, so next week will be a lot of fun. I think I’m more excited to have them home all week than they are. I’m envisioning mornings spent sleeping in, long and lazy breakfasts and lots of time playing outside. Yep, I’m a dreamer. We’ll see what reality brings.
I think that pretty much wraps things up…for now. Jen, Toni and will be doing monthly 3 Moms check-ins, so stay tuned for those.
Don’t forget to see how those two awesome women are wrapping up their months over at The Happy Housewife and Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. It’s been an honor for me to share this month with both of them.
Thanks so much for reading along and spending some time in the kitchen with me. All of the feedback, comments and discussions have been great. I’m looking forward to lots more of it in the future.
