Here is a picture of my trip - the lighting is terrible, I'm sorry!
I spent $46.46 and saved $36.34.
With this shopping trip, once again I am practicing the buy ahead principle. Will we eat two boxes of brownies this week? No. Will we eat two boxes of brownies in the next 6 months? Yes. I paid .50 a box, so it's better for me to buy now than when the craving hits. This applies to the bagels, Parmesan cheese, salsa and tomato sauce in this picture. In the past, by practicing the buy ahead principle, I have been able to totally skip grocery shopping some weeks because I have such a surplus! Just remember, first and foremost you need to stay within the food budget you have set, so if buying ahead is going to put you over your food budget, put it back.
Have a great weekend!
