Dec 092011

I did a lot of shopping this past week, but some of it was for blogging promotions that I will write more about. After all the shopping I did, I am amazed to discover that I only spent $46! That’s $46 for a family of five, and it included a gift.

This means that I am well below my grocery budget of $50 – $60 a week, but it all seems to add up when I look at the entire year. I think I will have to do a 2011 grocery shopping post with my savings and spending this year. I suspect it will be a lot of work though…
