$50 Budget Resumes

Good news! We came out on the other side of what I hoped would be a temporary reduction in our grocery budget! My husband's work schedule is still a little crazy, but for the moment it seems like they are pushing people to work 40 hours in 3 days instead of his (formerly) usual 45+ hours in 4 days. 40 hours in 3 days is fine with us because it afford him a whole extra day with his little people and means that even though we both work full-time we only need help with the girls twice a week. A good thing! So, we'll just keep being thankful for every paycheck that comes home in any amount and keep remember who our Source is.

I'm running a little behind on grocery shopping this week. I made one quick stop at Price Chopper on my way home. I signed up for their new card and got the above items. I can't find my receipt, but my total was just under $10 before tax. There was a great coupon on the bags of Snyder's tortilla chips for $1.50 off produce if you bought two bags at $1.99/ bag. It wasn't on my list, but I couldn't pass it up! I picked up 1.5 lbs of green beans for free! We enjoyed some chips with our family's favorite black bean dip last night for a snack and we'll love having fresh green beans with dinner tomorrow night!
