Project: Food Budget, Week 16

Hey there, kiddos. Time to check in on mah spendin’:

Budget: $75
Actual: $67.85

Under budget, yes, but this was another wacko week. Hubs and I went away for a long weekend so we didn’t need as many groceries as normal. We did save money, though, by bringing food and cooking in our fun little cabin in the woods :-). We also acquired some local PA maple syrup and AMAZING apple butter at a cute little shop in “town.” I’m a little obsesed…

On our way back from mini-vacay, we stopped at Schramm Farms to pick up local produce and eggs (for Hubs). We rarely go grocery shopping together, so when the cashier rang up 7 different produce items and 2 dozen eggs at $13.47, Hubs acknowledged how much we got for so little moola. Well, yes, hunny, I’m a bargain shopper, and I’m all about local and farm fresh if possible! It put a smile on my face to see that he appreciates my frugal ways 🙂

Let’s check out those other Project: Food Budget-ers and see how they’re doing:
