Under budget AGAIN. So it can be done! I made a few mistakes. I could have got the peanuts cheaper & more at Dollar Tree. Next week I will know. The lunch bags were not needed but just cause the kids wanted to see how to make your own microwave popcorn. Also I stocked up on : Beans, meat (again) and eggs. And things I do not buy weekly are : Muscle Rub (well, if this running keeps hurting it might! LOL), ibuprofen, detergent (once a month), curtain rods (I need 2 larger ones in the coming weeks & then I am done). We shall see how long the eggs last.

My surprise came from Dollar Tree this week. I did not realize there was good deals on cold foods there! They have been added to my weekly trips now. I will be posting our weekly menu tonight, so come back and enjoy. 🙂

    I’m enjoying it too. Our Dollar Tree doesn’t sell cold/frozen stuff. Big bummer. I have been thinking of switching to powder laundry detergent too. More bang for your buck for sure.
