Shopping Summary: May Week #1

I haven’t posted a shopping summary in a while – but after just crunching the numbers, I fell $3.00 under budget for the month of April.  Wa-hooo!  My savings percentages haven’t been as high, though we’ve had everything we’ve needed and have been adding to the stockpile little by little.  Under budget, new recipes, and healthy food – whether it’s high or low savings, I’ll take it.

I made it to Publix and Harris Teeter this week.  The trips went $10 over our $30/week budget, but I wanted to take advantage of the HT Triples.  I have three weeks to make it up, definitely doable.
