$60.00 A Week Grocery Budget Challenge


Imagine my surprise when I opened the freezer to get a couple jars of homemade chicken stock and....yikes!  I grabbed the last jar.  I actually had to buy chicken stock this week!  As far as the rest of the shopping goes, I didn't need much else from the store.
