Friday Night Round-Up: 38 Weeks and Counting

It's time for the weekly round-up. Heading into the weekend I must assess the spendature to date which will give me a gauge on what happens over the next few days. (Namely, do I make a stop to the liquor store tonight or not?)

Sunday was grocery shopping day. It looked like this:
$85.26 Natural Food Grocery Market
$29.45 Whole Foods
$27.98 Walmart

Total = $142.69

NONE - That is, until yesterday's spur of the moment after-school trip to the swimming pool. People were hungry. Mama didn't pack any snacks. Opps. Burger King drive-thru is so darn convenient in times like these:
$9.11 Burger King

Grand Total = $151.80

Alright. Since this is my second official week on the $150/wk budget I'm going to call that good. No liquor store tonight. Still have the materials to make hummus, tuna salad, chicken salad and granola bars. Here's to that carrying us through 'til Sunday's shopping trip!
