Shopping with three boys between the ages of 8 and 1 just does not tempt me, so while I have all three boys home every day, I think I will have to cut the amount of shopping trips I make. It is a good thing that I raised my grocery budget $10 for the summer, because this week I definitely did not make it between $50 and $60 dollars for the week.I knew I had to make it to Target though, because $0.19 for my middle son’s favorite hot dogs was not a sale I was going to pass on. I spent $4.98 at Publix on Nutrigrain cereal bars, but I submitted for a $5 gas card with the Kellogg’s rebate, so I hope it will come before we go on our Florida road trip. This was the first time that my boys tried these, and after returning home from the store I realized I should have bought four more boxes.
