Kept within budget

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!
