$60.00 A Week Grocery Budget Challenge

Freezer Blueberry Muffins
This week's meal plan was thrown together in a big hurry.  I have no idea how it ended up being Friday so soon, but I hadn't even thought about writing a plan + shopping list on Thursday as I usually do.  So, J was unable to grocery shop on Friday morning which completely threw off his Friday schedule.  And I threw off his Saturday schedule by accompanying him to the store.  You'll remember he holds me fully responsible if we break the budget when I am with him.  :)

Let it be known I only threw one thing in the grocery cart that wasn't on the list........  And we stayed in budget.



The end of this week is going to be a bit hectic with a show that we're doing so I'm assuming we'll be eating out both Friday and Saturday night.
