Getting Back Into the Groove...

Since we've been gone a good chunk of the summer traveling, we didn't keep very much in the fridge, because I just hate wasting food! So we did alot of snacking and making creative meals when we needed to....

Anyway, now that the summer is coming to an end, it's time to get back to a fully re-stocked fridge, freezer and pantry, and unfortunately there just aren't coupons for everything I want! So, I definitely went over my budget this week (I try to average about $30/week) with my Kroger trip on Sunday and this one to Publix, but hey, we didn't spend any money on groceries while we were gone last week (thank to hubby's family) so I figure it all balances out.

Total before coupons & store savings: $42.69
Total after coupons & store savings: $22.59
Savings: 47%
