I'd report our grocery spending...

. . . but, there hasn't been any.

I take that back.

I did spend $4.50 Sunday afternoon on a newspaper and three bags of fall candy. The newspaper had four or five coupon inserts. I thought there were just four, but when I thought I was done going through them I found another under the newspaper. It was either a fifth one or I hadn't kept them all together. A bag of candy corn and a bag of candy pumpkins in a jar I use for incentive treats for school time. (The children were disappointed to learn that they could only have one pumpkin per day.) The other bag of candy I bought was candy "Autumn mix" corn. I'll use that to refill the jar later. That would bring my Kroger total for the month to $80.60.

I still have meats, veggies, and some other items in the freezer to use up. I'm wondering if I get it all used up this month. I really don't want to have to put anything back after I defrost the freezer though. I may need to leave the freezer off until I can find a new seal or another solution, since it doesn't seal properly at the top. Our refrigerator is a stand alone fridge (no freezer).

I've been out of milk for a few days, but we have had other sources of calcium and vitamin D.

The cabinets are starting to clear out, so I'll have to take inventory soon.

I think we'll go shopping after Jon gets paid tomorrow.

We made a menu, clipped coupons, made a detailed list but spent over $200 for the rest of the month. I guess that's not so bad considering it was everything we need including razor blades (killer!!!), tp and other nonfood items. Right?

I'm excited tohave food in the house again, the cupboards were bare.
