The Grocery Game Challenge April 2- April 8 Happy Easter!

Since Easter is just around the corner I thought it be proper to highlight this special occasion for most families around the world.  I’m sure this weeks shop will include Ham, Potatoes, apples, stuffing, vegetables, gravy and dessert (brownies will be our number one chocolate pick of course) ha!

One of my favourite recipes is what I call our Easter Dinner In The Crockpot which was sent by Shelley C. a Facebook Fan.  I ran with her  potato and ham idea and  made it my own jazzing it up with various spices and variations so that we could use it for Easter or any night of the week. It was a hit so try out my version and see what you think! Thanks Shelley!

We love getting recipes at Canadian Budget Binder so simply email me your recipe along with your name and if I use it on my blog I will make sure you get the credit you deserve!

Although we will be heading to the relatives for dinner this year we still made it to the shops to pick up some quick items.  When I finished our March Budget update and actually saw our $200 overspend on groceries it really pressured us to stick to our budget in April. Although we purchased stock items in March we want to buckle down this month!

It’s been so much fun posting our shop and seeing what the fans have done as well. I must admit we have some pretty awesome shoppers who post and stick to their grocery budget. I’m sure we could all learn a thing or 10 from them. I always look forward to their next grocery brag of the week.

Anyhow here is our shop for this week! I will continue to add as we shop!
