Mondays With Mavis…

Before I get started I want to give a shout out to FAB reader Joy!  It was so nice to meet you  and everyone else who made it to our Fundraiser/Workshop last Friday night!  Thanks for coming out to support City of Light Home for Woman and Children. 🙂

Okay, here we go.  Are you ready? I made 1 small purchase last week.  LOL. I picked up 1 cantaloupe and 2 packages of ham steaks (I used 2 $2 off meat (manufacture) coupons from the Hamburger Helper deal at Albertsons) and paid only $5.35.  That’s it.  That’s all I bought!

Here’s a picture of Amber trying to get me to buy some Cheese Nips at Winco… As tempting as they were… I reminded her I packed my own snacks. 😉

Speaking of free food, I also gathered a few tomatoes, beets, zucchini & eggs from the backyard garden yesterday.  That’s it.  That’s all I have to show you.  I wish I had more.

Total spent this week: $5.35

Total spent year to date:$1,040.90

How did you do with YOUR grocery budget this week?  Did you buy anything exciting?  A box of Cheese Nips perhaps?

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
