Last week seemed to be a real hit or miss kind of week meal plan-wise. We ran out of cooking oil of any kind in our house - no olive oil, no coconut oil, and no vegetable oil. I refused to go to the store, so I had to improvise on some of the meals. It turned out ok, but I didn't stick to the meal plan. Weeks like that make me very thankful we always have something in the pantry or freezer to cook.
Also, we are almost at the end of our month (AJ gets paid monthly and on an off day), so our grocery budget was really small this week. I had $17 in the food category left when I went to Publix. We normally run on a small budget, but that is ridiculous even for us. It wouldn't be that small normally, but we made a Sam's run earlier this month which wasn't in the budget. Luckily, we have a "Blow Budget" category! YAY!!! Well, all total the groceries cam in at $36.95. So, not to horrible for a full week, under our normal $50 a week, but over the $17 we had.
