Crazy expensive milk!

As I was plugging my way through morning activities yesterday morning, I realized that if I had to make it to the grocery store, or I wasn't going to have another chance this week! We're expecting bad weather and with a family birthday this weekend, I'm booked up! I decided the baby and I better hit the store, but I didn't even have a chance to look at the sale ads. We went to Hy-Vee because I generally think I have the best luck there!

We didn't really need much other than milk and bread, so I was just scouting for good deals and easy meals and snacks. (Speaking of milk, our local brand was over $4 a gallon!) My grand total came in at $51 after tax. Not bad! (Although I am going to have to exchange all of the tuna in oil I somehow grabbed. BLECK!)

You may have noticed that I've been trying a lot of new recipes lately! It's so nice to be on maternity leave and have the time for more cooking! I'm having fun trying the new recipes and am hoping to discover some easy and inexpensive new favorites to add to our meal plans. So far, so good, I think!

I'm planning on making a new recipe for spinach and spaghetti pie tonight for dinner. We're also going to be home quite a bit due to bad weather and new baby over the next few days. I would LOVE to get some baking done to stock on my freezer. I'm thinking blueberry buckle and some pumpkin bread would be great!

  1. Looks like we are in the same boat. We are both trying to live on $50 per week. We have two teenagers at home still, so we have 4 people total. Come over and link up if you are interested!
