I had to make a last-minute edit to our prior weeks shop which you can see at the end of the post. We did a late night raid at Zehrs yesterday to pick up some of the cheapest milk I’ve ever seen. I’m sure I will be back for more and we freeze it and take it out as we need it.
This week might just end up being a stock up week and some vegetables. I might even venture into making bread land this week but still am so leary. I wish I had someone to hold my hand through the process.
Recap last week!
So we had underspent the week earlier and had +$21.11 left after the last shop this week – $10.12 = +11.32 left still in the budget along with $64 =$75.32 for the month to go!!
We still have a shop free week so we might actually pull it off this month who knows! There seems to be a secret 20x event at Shopper’s Drug Mart but since we are stocked on milk we might stay away.
Posting our budget and shop has made a world of difference to the money we spend. Last year we toppled over 5k in grocery with over 5k in coupons used. This year we hope to cut that in half.
I will report back here and edit this post as we shop throughout the week.
