Apr 132012

It is Friday again, which means that it is time to look over my purchases for the past week to make sure that I stay within my budget for the year. This was my second week in a row, where I was under my grocery budget, but I have been over budget in other weeks, so it all adds up. Despite being under budget, our fridge and pantry are still filled to top capacity, although I was able to make room for rye bread in the freezer (even after buying chicken) this week. My kids also have plenty of snacks, and both the produce drawer and the produce bowl are filled up thanks to price matching in other weeks. Our vegetable garden are providing us with lots of great tomatoes and herbs, so this is another item I do not have to worry about. I did loose about $14, when someone took a bag, after I had bought two jackets earlier in the week. I wasn’t sure whether to put it in the budget or not, but I finally decided to put it as a loss. You can see the Lender’s bagel post for details, if you want to know how I actually lost my deals….

  1. Hated to read about the jackets being taken…sometimes I think I’m overly cautious, but hearing stories like that makes me think you have to be that way! Glad you at least got some cheap bagels!

  2. Thanks for publishing your savings at Pounds4Pennies this week.
