This week I actually took the kids shopping not once but three times, and they did really well. The first time was a trip to the mall, which they were all rewarded with a trip to the playground for afterward. The second time was shopping at Kohl’s, where our two oldest sons got to shop with $5 off $5 Kohl’s coupons to buy birthday gifts for their younger brother, and the final shopping trip was going grocery shopping, which they certainly appreciated as it means food they liked at the house.
So somehow I survived shopping with four kids in tow three times in a week….and somehow they did too.
We did not go much over our weekly grocery budget, as we only spent $3 more than our summer budget of $100 for our family of six. As for all of our extras, I was surprised to see that we spent less than $50 even though we made a trip to the mall and two trips to Kohl’s.
How are you doing on your summer grocery budget?
