We have had a lot of rainy days this week, which is not easy, since I do a lot of my shopping on foot. On top of that my boys are taking turns being sick, so it has been quite a week. I did manage to get a couple of shopping trips done, and I even went to JCPenney for some clothes shopping.

I was very fearful that I had gone over budget for a second week in a row, but thankful I am below my family’s $60-70 grocery budget for our family of five. After looking what I could have paid, I sure am happy that we do not need to pay taxes on our savings. It might seem like a lot of work for me to run from store to store without a car, but when I look at the savings I know it is worth it. Thanks to coupons, sales and comparison shopping my family’s grocery budget remains low and our pantry full.
