Weekly Shopping Wrapup

This week is the beginning of less processed foods, more whole foods. Which of course, means more work for me in the kitchen. But after enduring the health issues that I and my family members have had lately, I think it's worth it. I've come to the conclusion that there is no way I will be able to make this transition on just $40 a week (my preferred budget) and this week I went over my real budget of $50 a week. I'm still going to try to not go over $50 but I've managed to squeeze an extra $10 into our weekly grocery budget for this purpose.

I hit 3 stores in one day, with my 4-year old in tow. Somehow we made it through alive.

I didn't make it to the store until the last day of their sale, so alot of what I wanted was gone. I did manage to get a raincheck. Publix is pretty good about giving rainchecks, but I've noticed lately they are pretty strict on limiting the number of items you can get.
