School’s out! We’ve decided to raise our summer grocery budget to $100 a week for groceries for our family of 6, because our three oldest kids usually have lunch and breakfast at school, which means they will now empty the shelves and the fridge all day long. The big question is whether I went over budget….

Weekly Savings LinkyAnd yes I did! Even with a $100 budget for our family of 6, I still went over! Arghh! I stocked up on cereal….big time stock up! I splurged at Publix ($9 for cherries!!!), and I just filled up the cart at ALDI with snacks and produce. My savings percentage is way off, but a  big reason is the fact that I’ve been loading our grocery cart with more produce than usual.

My coupon shopping has been limited, but thankfully ALDI is here, and I actually stocked up big time on cereal at Target this week with their B1G1 50 percent off sale on cereal.

  1. LOL I literally cringe when I purchase grapes! I think the summer months you need the increase for sure. There are always extra kids at my house or day trips I always need extras for. Hope you have a great first weekend of summer!
