Quick update for you so that you can get on with the weekend. Not much to report, so I guess that’s a good thing this is gonna be short and sweet.
Everyone had some variation of Avocado Toast/Toast and Eggs.
The kids had leftover soup and grilled cheese sandwiches and Tuna Melt Sandwiches. Apparently the soup was not a hit as we still have quite a bit left. Oops.
I skipped since I had a late breakfast.
Tonight is pizza night, so we’ve got six pizzas ready to go on the grill: pepperoni, pepperoni/sausage/mushroom, and a jalapeño supreme.
Fridays are my regular day to go to Ralphs for their clearance and digital deals. I got a late start on the day which meant a late trip to the store. Never bodes well for the clearance.
We ended up getting coleslaw mix, baby lettuce, buttermilk, blueberries, and avocado, frozen stir-fry vegetables, panko breadcrumbs on major clearance (79 cents because the box had been cut, and 9 bags of chips for 99 cents.
I ended up spending $28 which brings our monthly total to $289. I’m hoping to keep our monthly average spending to $1000/month, so this fits very nicely under my 1/2 our regular budget goal.
If you’re wondering how I set my budget, I use the USDA Food Cost reports on the thrifty plan. You can find their latest report here.
Happy Friday, folks!
