This week I have been doing a lot of clerance shopping, which means that my non-grocery spending increased. Still, with a family of five there needs to be room in the budget for extra spendings on necessities and fun, and thanks to my frugal grocery budget the wiggle room is there. This is my third week in a row where I am below my grocery budget of $65 for a family of five, so I am thrilled about that.
The best part is probably that my family isn’t missing anything, we are very spoiled with all the healthy food and the goodies in the house at the moment. .
