Menu Plan Monday

So, I did it. I tried to plan and shop for 3 weeks. This means that technically my budget would be $180 but with the bulk buying at Costco I am going for $150. We will see...

There are obviously things that I will have to buy each week but it should not be much. We will see how this goes...

This week I spent $35.13 at Aldi and $74.57 at Kroger for a total of $109.70. I am pleased with this. I should be able for the next two weeks not to spend over $40! I think/hope I can do it. I will keep you posted.

Here is the menu for this week:

Monday: Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli
Tuesday: Spaghetti and Garlic Bread
Wednesday: Soup and Grilled Cheese
Thursday: Ham Delights and Corn
Friday: Tacos and Rice
Saturday: Valentines Night Out!! <3
Sunday: Leftovers

Did you get a message from me last night on your cell phone?

Anyhow - I think I do much better off financially when I shop at the grocery store for a longer period of time. I'm glad that you are doing such a good job!
