Saturday Spending

You all will be a bit surprised by this, but all that time I wasn't posting I was thinking about y'all enough to save my receipts. So this post is going to be a bit of a long one, since there're simply too many receipts for me to combine them (and they won't be in chronological order).

Ah. I'm glad to see it's not nearly as bad as I thought it might be. I don't trust this as being the be-all, end-all of my shopping though, because I know there's no way I haven't told you guys about my grocery shopping in nearly 2 months and that's all the bread flour we needed. So I'd say let's add in another $10 for bread flour that was purchased without me receiving the receipts, and let's go ahead and add in another $25 in groceries that didn't get accounted for as well. I think that's probably a little on the high end, but I'd rather estimate high than low. So that adds another $35 to our total, for a grand total of $221.71. All in all, that's really not too bad at all. It's still a little higher than I'd like to see, but we've been good regarding food waste and I don't feel like the pantry is terribly overstuffed so I think we're okay there too. How's this been going for y'all?
