    Yeah, really, walk into costco for just milk, and leave 150 bucks lighter toting a cart with cookies, meat, crackers, candy, and various other goods.

    Holy cow! I guess you are grateful! I would be too! Especially if $450 actually bought a lot of food. Sheesh! With the way that prices have been, I've been nothing but discouraged about grocery shopping. Glad to hear that your trip was good! [​IMG]

    We spend like that each month, too, but man, do we ever hit the sales! I'm dreaming of a pantry so that I'll have even more room to store my budget finds (veggies, pasta sauce, etc. etc. etc.). I feel bad when I see a good grocery sale and think, yeah, but where would I PUT that? [​IMG]

    I'm thankful that you and your DH were able to get what you needed at the store. [​IMG]

    Quote:You really did do good if that will last you for a month...$100.00 doesn't buy that much anymore.

    I try like the dickens to keep my grocery bill under $150.00 a week sometimes I manage sometimes I don't.

    Congrats on the haul!!!
