I got back into my regular shopping routine this week, and I did not do any clothes shopping. Thursday was kids last day of school, which means that I will be busy entertaining them, but it also means less walking and less waiting time for me, as I usually spend many hours on the road every week. I have started a walking challenge to make sure that I keep my walking going, and now that I am home I have also set 1 hour aside each day for exercise. I am so looking forward to less stressful days for a while….are you?

I went way over my grocery budget of $50 – $60 per week, but I have had some weeks with being at the bottom or below budget. I am also seriously considering adding $10 extra per week for the rest of the summer as I will have the boys home all day, which of course means they will be eating more food at home as well.
