My Weekly budget is $75 a week. I’m trying to be better about sharing my trips so you can see that shopping on a budget and eating REAL food is possible.
Remember not to judge by a single trip! Currently I have plenty of meat in the freezer and enough canned and frozen veggies to last a while too! Plus plenty of butter, eggs, and breads. With a mature stockpile, I have the luxury of only buying what is at a great price.
Here is my Shopping Trip today at Harris Teeter. *Note: I would have bought the mascara at CVS because it’s a much better deal there (see that deal here) but I wanted to test this deal to be sure it worked so I splurged so I could confirm it!
