December Grocery Totals
Another great month, but also some help from family during the holidays in the form of eating at both my in-laws house and at my folks place. I'm not including anything spent past Dec. 29th in my totals and am including them in January's budget (since pay day fell that way), so I expect January to be a little higher. While I still did doubler shopping at Albertson's (I even skipped a week!), I did the 'everything else' shopping at Winco. Also, I think that freezer cooking and eating from the pantry is helping to keep my costs very low. We actually made 20 freezer meals for December, and we still haven't eaten all of them. What a time and budget saver! Dinners around our house are a snap now.
Total Spent on Food: $224.89
