Menu Plan Monday

Yum

Here is this week's menu and grocery list - keeping track of this on the blog (again) is really helping keep track of what I have on hand and using it and how much I'm spending. Nick and I just went over our budget last week and revamped it, so I'm curious to see how much I can get our grocery bill to come down.

Leftovers

Total Spent: $182.65
I would have spent $136.43 this week (ouch) not including my salad mixes for lunch, peaches (3 for $4.98) and navel oranges for Nick, k-cups, 1 1/2 gallons of milk, 3 creamers (if I don't get 3, we run out), lunch meat, bread, and a gallon of water. I cannot get over how expensive some yellow peaches were :/ Even the berries were way cheaper! My goal is to only spend about $140 on groceries each week. So I definitely went over my budget!
