Last Week we came in under budget spending just $32.50 that’s $31.50 less than we could have spent. It is now Wednesday and we still have had no desire to go out shopping however we do need a few staples. I think going to the relatives for Easter has set us back a bit this week. Yes that means we ate too much and food has been the last thing on our minds!
I’ve posted a couple of new handy Tools for you in the Kitchen which you can print for free.
I’ll keep you all posted of our weekly Grocery Shop by updating this post as we shop. This week we can spend $64 + $31.50 for a total of $95.50.
Here’s Our Weekly Shop
We decided to go “Pink Sticker” shopping last night and here is what we bought!

EDIT** Went to Zehrs last night and picked up a few items which still falls into this weeks budget. We also found some new coupons at Zehrs so I thought I would post them here.
Here is the breakdown
4x Neilson Milk Sale $3.99-$1.00 coupons=$11.96
1x ACE bread $3.69-50% pink sticker=$1.84
So we had underspent the week prior and had +$21.44 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!
