This week, we had $29 left in the budget to spend for groceries.  We spent exactly that amount.  🙂

We have some cabbage, potatoes, and zucchini left from previous weeks.  This week, we got acorn and carnival squash, tomatoes, green beans, and peppers.  We’ll be working around all of those veggies in our menu plan this week.

I’m experimenting with listing every meal we’ll eat this week to make sure we utilize our groceries wisely.
