Shopping Trip May 8

Well, we just did another shopping trip. I'm not sure having three young ones on a morning long shopping trip will ever get any easier. 

It's certainly not getting any easier on the budget. We had to increase the budget by $50 out of necessity, which means we drive the van less-that's almost a tank of gas for the van. Pork is going up just like everything else, so since Sam's bacon is no longer the cheapest (at least for this month), I decided to get GOOD stuff since I had to pay full price. So I went to the local butcher and got the good stuff, and now I'm second guessing myself because I'm worried it won't last the month-they slice theirs thicker. 

I went to three stores this time. I skipped Dollar Tree because Andrew was grumpy and my patience was thinning.
