Shopping Trip 10/15

So now we have our new budget figured out. We are able to add another $100 onto our previous budget for a total of $450 a month. Praise the Lord for that!  While there is still some budget squeezing, it's not near as bad as it has been.  I only had to take off a few extras and not compromise our meals for that.  

My last trip I only able to do 2 weeks at a time, and there has been some squeezing and supplementing to meet that.  This week I'm doing a full month again.  

Meals include salad, sesame seed chicken, salisbury steak, tacos, baked chicken (homemade shake n bake they even sell shake n bake anymore?).  Soup for the kids and I on the weekdays, chicken strips and fries on the weekends.   

With my meal plans I decided to do 14 meals, then rotate.  It simplifies my planning and I'm not scrambling to find enough recipes.  I'm still trying to stay away from the pasta and high carb foods for Dennis' health.

The weather is changing outside.  Getting colder, but hey, it's winter. 

I made Hannah a new pair of pajamas yesterday. Got them a little big but they'll last all winter, I'll take pictures for next week's post. 

Andrew is learning addition and money in school... So I saved the local grocery add and we'll practice money counting with that.

I think that's everything that's happening this week. Have a great week!
