Holy crap we’re on week
50 49! That means only two three official weeks to go.
Not that I’ll stop budgeting or meal planning or couponing. So my question is: do you guys want me to keep going with P:FB-like posts? Let me know.
48 and 49 47 and 48 were a bit *ahem* hectic. The former was finals week and the latter was my break so I was home, spending far too much $ eating out and visiting friends and generally enjoying life. I’m guessing that I was on-budget for the month of August, at least with my food budget, if not with my extraneous spending. <–trying not to think about that!
*Starred items are test recipes for the 4th Happy Herbivore cookbook.
Whole Foods: $33.72
Between an empty fridge, some deals that were too good to pass up, and the need for probiotics to help me recover from this weekend’s exploits ($16 on sale), it was a pricey week!
