Back to Basics Grocery Challenge, Week 3 Budget Updates



Because I had done quite a bit of grocery shopping to stock up at the beginning of the month I didn't really need to buy a lot this week.  I guess it was a good thing though, as there didn't seem to be any major sales going on at the grocery stores this week.  So my shopping was relatively light this week.

used 2 $0.50 coupons doubled, making them $1.49 each

Used a $3 off next purchase coupon I earned in a promotion last week. 

Total Spent $1.49

My food budget is making me nervous.  I have less than $25 for next week.  I have plenty of food for meals around the house but I still need to buy some produce, milk, and Special K cereal for me.
