Of the $146.31, $10.32 was bleach for the pool so that really doesn't count as groceries since it comes out of the pool fund. And for everyone that doesn't have a pool-bleach is the same thing as pool chlorine. You just have to make sure that it isn't watered down bleach and Aldi's bleach doesn't seem to be.
So I actually spent $135.99 for the week. Still it is too high and I think I know the problem. ALDI! How can this be you ask? A lot of the food prices have dropped around here and have hit my stock up prices. My being a penny-pincher is the problem. Every time I see a deal, I load up.
Plus it doesn't help that we like to entertain. We are fun, what can I say?
I have averaged the weekly totals and I'm at $127.40 for 11 weeks. I am also going to track how many coupons I use a week. It was 5, by the way. I used 2 $1 coupons and 3 free coupons that I got when we bought the freezer. I have a theory that I'm not saving enough money using the coupons and it doesn't warrant the time or the money.
And that's it for my boring life. How much do you spend a week on groceries and do you have a weekly budget?
