…I’ve just got to brag about this man for a minute. He is the BEST husband and father in the world. The love of my life. My best friend. But then, you probably all know that already. 😉
What I have to brag about today is what he has managed to do in the last year. In one year he has lost about 50 pounds! And not only that, he took up running. He did his first 5K in October and already did a half-marathon in January! I’m so super proud of him and his determination.
Went over budget again this week, but not too bad, so hopefully can make up for it.
Total Spent: $24.66
Budget for next week: $20.28
Produce: lots of zucchini and summer squash and a HUGE head of lettuce
Dairy: 7 cartons ice cream (money maker!), 8 4-pks yogurt, 2 dz eggs, 2 coffee creamer
Meds: over $60 worth of cold/flu meds, lens cleaner, etc all FREE after rebate
Other: pork, craisins, raisins (not pictured), 4 gatorade, 4 cake mix and 4 frosting for cake pops (FREE after rebate)
Changes for February:
-$25 per week (up from $20) – running low on meats/proteins, so I think we need a little wiggle room
-$10 per week toward garden fund, $15 per week toward beef purchase
-no longer counting dog and cat food in total
-free after rebate items will only count tax (as long as rebate is sent off right away)
How we did this week:
I went over budget this time. 😦 Which means we are on a much stricter budget to make up for it next week. We ran out of several must-have items this week, so that’s why the total was higher.
Didn’t get pictures of most of it, but here’s what we got this week:
Produce: 1 bag baby purple potatoes(FREE a/c), 2 bags fresh baby spinach, big bunch of markdown bananas, 3-lb bag organic apples, 2 large onions
Drinks: 4 Gatorade (FREE a/c), 6-pk of Pediasure (FREE after rebate)
Dairy: 2 dozen eggs, 4 four-packs yogurt (FREE a/c), sour cream, 2 bottles half&half
Frozen: 2 whole fruit sorbet, 6 ice cream (had to use up drugstore credit before it expired)
Canned: 27 cans ro-tel (FREE a/c)
HBA: 2 toothbrushes(FREE a/c), mineral foundation
Other: 3 bags bagel chips (FREE a/c), 2 bags organic corn chips, 6 balance bars, 4 big bags M&Ms for valentines, baking soda, kitty litter (FREE after rebate)
Total Spent: $30.06
Total Saved: no idea, but it was a lot
Next Week’s Budget: $19.94
