This week I went way over my grocery budget of $50 – $70 a week, but the good thing about being below some weeks is that I add a little extra once in a while. Target finally put their summer collection on clearance, and I went to Aldi for the first time in two weeks, which resulted in extra grocery purchases. Despite going way over budget, I saved a lot less than usual…not good.
