What I Spent:

Saturday, January 29

Walmart – $2.09

Somehow, I ran out of mayonnaise. And since I needed to make some more ranch dressing, that would not do at all! I had Daniel pick some up for us.

Tuesday, January 29

Sam’s Club – $79.89

Sam's Club 2019.01.29

Wow! That’s a big one! A combination of instant savings (Honey Nut Cheerios and ranch dressing mix) and needing to pick up some big bulk items (rice and pecans) made this an extraordinarily large trip.

Walmart – $49.18

Walmart Pickup 2019.01.29


Friday, February 2

ALDI – $30.03

Aldi 2019.02.01


That’s $161.19, which is $46.19 over my budget of $115 per week.
So…
Week 1 – $143.28 ($28.28 over)
Week 2 – $144.90 ($29.90 over)
Week 3 – $126.78 ($11.78 over)
Week 4 – $161.19 ($46.19 over)

If I want to catch up next month, I’m going to have to reduce my weekly expenditures to $86 per week. It’ll be exciting to see if I can do it! :-)

We had friends over and ate crockpot orange chicken over rice with canned pineapple, frozen stir-fry vegetables, and ramen cabbage salad on the side.

Lunch – Caesar chicken sandwiches with leftover ramen cabbage salad and green pepper slices

Supper – Soup supper at church before the member’s meeting

Friday, February 1
We had been hoping to join friends for a monthly semi-potluck dinner – but the little ones have gastroenteritis, so we’ll be staying home and having minestrone instead.
