Project Grocery: The Birthday
So having spent $26.46 on things we'll need this week too, I thought I could manage to stay under $93.54 today. But as usual, there's a but:
But it's Mr's birthday tomorrow, and I'm having a (not big) party for him. I'm burning his birthday cake int he oven right now. Which means more money on food, right? Which means another $101.01 dropped at the grocery store, which means $127.47. Which means over budget.
On a happier note, I'm making pork and sauerkraut - I'm a little nauseated just thinking about it, since it might be the most disgusting meal ever invented - but Mr is a Lancaster County boy, and every year at New Years he laments the pork and sauerkraut of his youth. I'll heat up a burrito or something for myself. (No I won't). So that wasn't happier at all.
Actually, the birthday is an excuse. I'd be under budget if it weren't for this:
Ten points if you know what this is...and Lindsay can't guess.
That's right. I spent $10.49 on Nutella. That I will eat from a spoon. By myself.
It's cheaper if you buy the big ones, you know. So I'm a savvy shopper.
