Month End Grocery Wrap Up - April


I stayed on track and under budget this month.  I am very happy and just a little bit proud of myself too.  Despite not having my usual meal plan posted we managed to eat very well all month long.  My girls especially enjoyed Soup Week and have requested we do it again in the future.  I do believe we will.  Definitely! 

Here is the final tally of everything I purchased this month:

My non-food tally came in at $22.41. 

How did you do this month?
