 we went grocery shopping the other day & the total was $170.34.  hubby wasn't too happy about it.  we haven't been shopping, besides buying milk when we run out, for 3 weeks.  the $170 was not only for food but for toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc.  oh & we really won't have to do shopping again for another 3 weeks, besides milk that is.  so i don't think the bill was bad at all.  forgot to mention that we saved $30 in coupons.

so what say you mamas?  good shopping trip or bad?

 there is 4 of us.  when you break it down it's about $56 per week, about $14 a week per person.  how much do you spend a week roughly?  oh & that includes lunch foods for my two little monsters for when they want to pack & not buy.

For three weeks , that's pretty good.  We are a family of four and we try to keep it about $60 a week for everything.

 i thought he'd be impressed.  i don't think he broke it down like i did though.  seeing it as 3 weeks worth of food & such.  i think he was just seeing the dollar amount.  i mean for a family of 4 for almost a month i wouldn't see $170 as a bad total.
