Grocery Shopping

October 19th, 2006 at 09:54 am



Last night was grocery shopping night.

Overall, I don't think we did too badly. We spent $115 on groceries, which is $15 more than budgeted, but we were seriously low on everything. I will take the extra out of overtime money. I hate to do that, but I don't want to keep running a deficit in my grocery money category.

DH picked up 2 DVDs that he's been wanting to see that the kids will also enjoy. I grimaced to myself, but how can I recommend we don't buy them when he works all this overtime and then comes home and spends the evenings working on the kitchen addition? He certainly deserves to spend some money on something that he enjoys. And since we rarely go to the movies or even rent a movie, I don't think it was too extravagant.

* Tried to add a picture in this post, but guess I'm going to have to work on figuring that one out.

    Have you thought about getting DVD's from the library? That's what me and BF do because it's much cheaper than buying or renting... and we rarely watch the same thing twice! Unless it's a personal favorite, then we look for it used at the record exchange. There's definitely a cheaper alternative to buying DVDs new! Keep saving!

    Thanks Luxliving! I've printed the instructions off and will give it a try later tonight!

    pjmama...LOL! I had to laugh because I AM a librarian! :-) BUT I didn't even give it a thought. I guess I just figured that DH rarely spends any money on anything for himself that I didn't want to try to persuade him not to. He's always working hard and telling me and the kids to get things we need while never doing anything for himself. But I sure appreciate you thinking of us libraries. :-)
