For my family of three I allow us $100.00 every two weeks, and that includes groceries and toiletries.
This week I found that I was out of a lot. Doesn’t it just seem like it hits all at once!?! Frozen veggies, crackers/snacks, bulk items like oats, flour, etc. I know I over spent, but that’s why I give myself money for every 2 weeks, so that the next week I know not to spend as much.
Vons: Spent $19.01, Saved ?? (Can’t find my receipt)
