- Post it in the comment section of this post and you could win a monthly prize of $50 in various Canadian coupons~ see rules and regulations here. We are now down to $75.09 left to spend for the month on groceries.
Let’s see how well we do with this weeks shop. **Edit** We are over budget already this month. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t. Money will have to come from our Emergency Savings to cover the overage. I’ll explain why we went over this month in our March Budget Update! Cheers
This weeks grocery shop will be challenging for us since we spend a bulk of our grocery budget last week. Once I tally up all our shops for this week will have a better understanding where we stand. Next weeks shop will be our last for the month as we will do a no-shop week that week.
