Weekly Shopping Trip--Savings $92.21

This week's shopping trip was done in the midst of a very busy week! We had two soccer practices, two soccer games, four church play practices, 2 nights of play, hubby home on vacation but working at church for 5 days building set for the play and last but not least my MIL visiting for 48 hours.

I realized that I need some meat in the house! I was running really low on meat and so I found some manager markdown meats this week to help with the bottom line. However, with my shopping being more meat heavy I spent over my $100/week goal! I ended up $9.93 over the $100! Still I don't think that is too bad considering that the last 3 weeks I have been under $100 each time. So it probably has evened/average itself out to $100 for each week!

I also had to make a second trip to Family Fare with my split chicken breasts because they rang up incorrectly! One of the packages the cashier couldn't scan so she ended up ringing up for the regular price rather than the sale price. The other package rang up but not for the right price!
