What we did do this week is take a picture of all we got on our shopping trip. Our budget is $250 per week. This week we are using up a lot of meat that’s in the freezer. So, our total bill, all at Food Basics was: $155.43. That included diapers, toilet paper, paper towel and formula (Meredith is now on formula along with a lot of solid foods…she’s almost 11 months old now).
I don’t know if anyone noticed this over the holidays, but we found that during December we seemed to be paying WAY more for groceries than we usually do. I honestly believe the grocery stores jack up the prices during the holiday season. Yesterday seemed back to normal. Anyone notice the trend, or am I just out of my mind?
Just one last thing, we celebrated a milestone yesterday with our Andrew…he lost his very first tooth!! The Tooth Fairy came and left him a whole Toonie!
