Budget $300.00
Total what spent this month: $374.88
coupons this week: $1.00
Total this week: $77.52
Total Over: $74.88

I have to admit I was a little scared this week shopping. I knew I would be over my set amount because of the chickens being dressed. That said I have 24 chickens in my freezer for the winter, which is really comforting to know. I also have 10 tubs of maragine in the freezer for baking. The one item I was willing to go $40.00 bucks on this week was Kraft Peanut butter which was on sale at a fantistic low price of $3.88L but I priced matched everywhere and there was NO peanut butter to be found.

This month I am over by $77.88!

I thought about you when I was checking out at Walmart on friday. Im sick of what I spend at that place! We only have two grocery stores in my county and neither are cheap!

I feel like Im getting robbed everytime I go to the store!

I am hoping that with the gas prices dropping our grocery bill will too. Dought it though, they will keep it raised and profit from it.
