Day 3-7 & Weekly Update


                                     


Sorry about the lack of updating.  Seems the days got away from me.  Here is how the later part of my week has went as far as spending goes.

Day 3 - I made a run to Aldi and got the groceries we needed.  I spent $54.58.  For dinner we had snacks leftover from New Years Eve.

Day 4- I bought a pair of curtains for Kid #5's room from a facebook group.  I spent $16 on them.  I am as the moment doing a make over on them which I will post about later this week.  We are slowly making some changes in her room.  I hope to sell her current curtains on facebook and make my money back.  I will let you know if that happens.

I also bought some soda and spent $5 for that.  Normally we do not buy soda but Saturday was our last family Christmas celebration and we had homemade pizza.  They seem to go together :)

Day 5 - I did not leave the house and it was a no spend day! Woohoo! 
For dinner we had fried potatoes with leftover green pepper & onion from the pizza and the last of the ham.

Day 6- I did not leave the house but hubby did so while he was out I asked him to get me some Woodchuck to enjoy on my snow day :)  He also grabbed some navy beans so he can make ham n beans from our hambone. -$11.97. For dinner we had chicken stir fry from the freezer

Day 7- I have not left the house and I had no spending! Woohoo! 
For dinner tonight we had baked ravioli with homemade spaghetti sauce leftover from another meal we had not long ago and a salad.

So total grocery spending for the week is $71.55
Personal spending for myself $16 + $7.95 out of my Christmas money from Day 2
2/10 - No Spend days so far!

Not to bad for my first week.  Tomorrow it is back to work and school for me and the kids after 18 days off.  I am not really looking forward to it!

  3. Great job this week! I love Aldi. The prices are so good there. I just wish our Aldi had better produce. Every time I go, it's picked over or rotten.

    1. I think the key is to figure out or ask when their trucks come. I usually have good luck with produce if I go during the week, but not on the weekends.
