So, there are five Thursdays in this month, so I will shop five times, $20 a pop. (Or less, if I can do it!)
Today I went to Aldi, and I spent just under $20. I bought eggs, apples, creamer, raisins, bread, butter, and cookies. I also bought toilet bowl cleaner for $2, but that doesn't come out of the grocery budget. For household supplies, I buy them when I need them; it's not a category in which I ever overindulge.
Next Thursday I may be out of town -- I'm planning a short trip to Michigan, which may or may not come together. If I'm on the road next Thursday, I'll hold off on the shopping until I get home, probably Friday.
I made quesadillas for lunch today, out of leftover chili and cheese. There is enough left to do the same thing tomorrow.
I'm feeling pretty optimistic about keeping my grocery spending at or under $100.
