I managed to keep my grocery total within my weekly budgeted amount! I budgeted $125. I actually only spent $90 on food and was able to spend the remaining $35 of some weed killer, 2 pairs of flip-flops, dog treats and some shop towels. With what I purchased and what I have in my pantry I was able to plan for 6 nights of dinners and only one "take out" night. Tonight's meal was a "chicken sandwich ring". Tomorrow will be spaghetti. The rest of the week will be chili dogs, homemade 4 cheese and bacon mac & cheese, steak, and leftovers one night.
I was able to get a few things that were good deals at RiteAid and Target. At RiteAid I got 4 of Dh's SpeedStick deodorant for .99 ea after UP Rewards. At Target I got some Banana Boat sunscreen and lip balm for $7.59 and I also received a $5 Target gift card back. The sunscreen is much needed anyway, so I will use the $5 gift card towards dog food next week. I have a $2 off Purina One dog food coupon, plus the $5 gift card and I'll also get 5% off using my Target Red Debit card. A nice savings on the dog food!
