Weekly Menu

Ack, is it nearly Monday already?!

I am trying to keep things pretty simple and low prep since we had a busy weekend of traveling.  I did some shopping on Friday at Aldi and Trader Joe's, and will head to Costco sometime this week. I'll show you my photos and totals all at once when I gather them together.

I am doing it... the project. Documenting everything we buy and eat this week, to penny. It is kind of hard, because there is always some overlap between weeks, obviously.  So, I am doing my best to clarify that on my submission.  The fact that I generally shop weekly and use a weekly budget number definitely helps make it easier than if I didn't.

Every week I think: "This is the week I am going to be on top of things and get to bed at a decent hour."  And even when I think I do, Thursday morning rolls around and I feel like I am only running on fumes (and coffee).  But once I make it through Friday, it is recovery time again. Thank Goodness!
