So, Big Daddy does not get paid until the 30th of October….so I’m a little wonky on our budget. I went over by $16 for our groceries, this week….that included dishwasher tabs and a case of pullups….so really, I was good on food but behind on my “misc” envelope. I tanked that envelope because Fabulous Frannie had buy 3 get one free plus 15% off and I needed to replace some…..so I did 🙂
With that being said, I am cooking out of my pantry this week (and possibly next week). I do this, occasionally to save money. So, when I grocery shop, on the weeks that I cook out of my pantry, I do bulk breakfast foods or I buy extra cans of things that I can stockpile. I also buy fresh fruits and veggies.
