The final tally for our Kroger shopping in September is $238.31. We came in below our goal of $75.00 per week for groceries, but don't let that fool you.
September was actually a rather expensive month for us. We've been working on redoing our living room and have purchased paint, trim, adhesive, and curtains among other things. We also had to get shoes for five of the children and me. Jon's birthday was this month and we went out to eat and of course I bought him a gift. September is a pretty busy month for us and we ended up eating out more than usual.
Most likely, any money we saved on food was spent on other needs, wants, or desires.
