It is time for another round of the Weekly Savings Linky, where you can see how I am able to keep a frugal budget for my family. By shopping deals and shopping several stores, I am able to save more for my family of five. This week I went over my usual $60-$65 weekly grocery budget though, but that’s alright, because I have been below budget for a few weeks.

After a week with all three boys home for spring break, my family needed to stock up on breads and other staples. I also found some great deals on kids toothpaste, party favors, cream cheese and Pillsbury rolls. The splurges this week were on Easter candy, and I found both a hat for myself, jeans for my middle son and sandals for my youngest son at Kohl’s.
