What I Spent

Last Saturday, I got my $25 Hungry Harvest.

(I’m pleased to say we’ve already eaten everything here except for the radishes and zucchini!)

On Monday, I spent $81 at Aldi.

And yesterday, I spent $62 at Aldi.

Plus I spent $18.89 at the store where Lisey works.

So, I’m at $186.69 for the week, which is $36 over my average goal.

July Spending

Week 1: $210

Week 2: $187

This means that if I’m going to end July on budget, I need to only spend $100/week for the next two weeks.

Can I do it???

What We Ate


Mr. FG and I went out to dinner with my sister and her husband.

And the kids made and ate the creamy tomato pasta dish from Budget Bytes.


I took Sonia and Zoe and a friend to Chick-fil-A for cow appreciation day, so they had kid’s meals for dinner.

(Incidentally, before you get upset that we eat at Chick-fil-A, please read this.)

Joshua was at a small group where they serve dinner.

And I made a grilled shrimp salad for Mr. FG, Lisey, and me.  I also made some potato wedges to use up the last of my Hungry Harvest potatoes.


This is the night I made the homemade tortillas and chicken tacos.

We had chips and pico de gallo as well.

Plus homemade applesauce from the freezer.


We spent the afternoon at the pool and I had music rehearsal in the evening.  Which left very little time for dinner-making!

Sonia suggested a snacky dinner, so we stopped at Aldi on the way home from the pool and picked up a bunch of snacky foods (crackers, cheese, croissants, ham, fruit).

Easy, easy!


I’m planning to make pizza tonight.
