I have been very very busy this week, but I still managed to get some necessary grocery shopping and I even bought some expensive extras that sent my spending through the budget roof. This is the first time in a while that I actually spent more than I saved, but I am happy with what I got for my money.

My husband helped me out big time, because all of my shopping trips were quick, which meant that he would drive, keep the kids in the car and let me run in and out of the store as quickly as possible. It is amazing how fast you can shop, when you do not have the kids tag along. I got some great deals including school supplies, lots of meat, cheap V8, soy milk and  even toilet paper for a year for $30. I spent more money than usual, but sometimes that is needed, and at least I do not have to buy toilet paper for the next year or so.
