My Shopping Week Jan 11 – Jan 17th

Not much to say about this week! I went to CVS and bought advil for DS because he has been sick. It cost $5.24, but I put the entire thing on my CVS gift card so it was free.

I went to Costco and bought a gallon of milk and 2 loaves of bread. It cost $6.16. The milk is normally $4.29 at our local store and the loaves of bread are extra large so they are the equivalent of 3 loaves of store bought bread (and healthier) so that would have cost me $5.37 at the store.

I didn’t get any pictures since it was such a boring week!

My total is $5.24 in household and $9.66 in food for $6.16 for a 60% savings!

I have $112.54 left in my January budget.

7 Days of Dinners –

Pizza & Salad
Pot Pies & Broccoli
Chicken Pasta & Potatoes
Chicken Noodle Soup & Stuffing
Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
Pizza & Salad
Spaghetti & Salad

Not the greatest menu, but DS has been sick for the past three days and I didn’t really have time to think about it (or go to the store). We just got the necessities!

Your site looks extremely interesting. Gonna have to grab a cup of hot tea and have a good look around.

BTW, thanks for the comment. I love my header too but I’m looking for a new background. Some sort of pretty pattern.

Thanks again, stop by anytime!

I sure hope that DS feels better soon!

He had a pretty okay day today – off, but the fever was much lower.

Hot tea sounds wonderful!

This is a good idea! Your weekly menu. It is really something bloggers could share! I would never have thought about it. My header photo gets posted all skew. Any idea how I could fix it? I am not too creative, but would love to have a friendlier blog.

Hmm, your header looks good from my computer. The baby on the right is cut off – but it looks like that is the way the pic is supposed to be 🙂

You can try to save it to your computer and then go to Layout and upload the image to blogger instead of coding it into the html (unless that is how you are doing it now). Sometimes that will center it for you.
