I decided to take the blog off the privacy setting. I was tired of it, it made the blog a chore rather than something fun, and it showed I was being controlled by someone else (and that someone else is so NOT worth it). A very wise friend told me (and I am paraphrasing) that the only people I have to answer to are those people who I see in my home on a daily basis, everyone else’s opinion doesn’t matter. He is right. So, welcome back to all those who missed us!
We’re back our weekly menu! I have added what we pay for each meal. This does not include our beverage for the meal, which is usually about 1.5 litres of milk ($1.57 per meal).
Sunday – Ribs, Bacon Cheddar Rice and salad ~ $14.93
Monday – Sausage Soup and Homemade Bread ~ $13.00
Tuesday – Shake and Bake Pork chops, rice and corn ~ $13.77
Wednesday – Tuna Casserole ~ $10.74
Thursday – Spaghetti and Meatballs ~ $10.15
Friday – Pot roast, biscuits and veggies ~ $12.25
Our total for dinners this week is $74.84. We spent a total of $200 at the grocery store for our main trip and we will have to go back to get milk in the middle of the week. I am hoping that we can save at least $50 of our $300 budget.
We also started back on the jars this weekend. It feels good. It has worked so well in the past and I think we got lazy once we moved into the new house. I want to shave off at least $10,000 of our debt in the next year, so we have to get cracking!
Have a great week everyone!
