Groceries under $100!

March 6th, 2011 at 07:49 pm

For the first time in a very very long time, my groceries were under $100. The total came to $85.86
So, I made a list and a menu, but I think the real secret was taking two toddlers and a hubby to the grocery store. There is nothing like a screaming kid and crowded store that makes you just want to finish the items on the list and get out as fast as possible. I was actually pretty stressed during the shopping experience (for some reason, I thought taking the hubby and kiddos would be a fun experience, then reality set in when one of the kids started nibbling the corner of the pasta box like a mouse and the other one kept running off to get things to put in the cart). However, after the stress of dealing with the kids and checking out, I realized that my family actually being there prevented me from doddling and buying things/new products I didn't need. I also came home and washed the fruits/vegies. However, I am not sure if I will take them next week? My hubby also got a credit card minimum payment and interest lowered. Overall, a pretty good weekend.

    Oh, man, I avoid taking my kids to the store like the plague. Husband, too, if I can help it. They always want to put things in the cart that are not on the list.

    I'm most impressed by your husband getting a credit card to lower interest and payment! That should help you snowball your debt!

    way to go! I'm with Robin...I spend SO much more when the kids are with me. (And Hubby is just as bad..."Pop Tarts? We haven't had these in a while!")
