Last week we went for our exceptions grocery shopping trip. We spent $14.89 when our bill was $40. That was a happy day.
On Friday, we went again.
Spoiler alert. I suck at this game.
We did have to buy diapers though so that brought us up $30 higher than originally expected.
We barely had anything in our cart. There was a whole lot of fruits and veggies, a carton of eggs, a carton of milk, some non-essential items that would help get us through the month like rice, yogurt for my child, and my “Husband’s” snacks.
(There was a 3-hour break between writing the previous paragraph to this one)
Adding it up now, I realise that $31 of the bill was his snacks and $11.14 was the chicken he wanted for dinner that night. That, added with the diapers, brings us to $71.5.
NEW CONCLUSION: My “Husband” is the reason we spend so much money. I am not bad at this game. I just don’t have any support.
Going into this, my budget for groceries a week has been $50 – no more.
Do you know how much is left when you take away his crap food and the diapers? I’m not hating on the baby, diapers are a necessity. That one box will last us until half way through next month.
That is what I spent on groceries.
I think I am just going to leave him behind next week.
