Meal Planning for April 25th - May 1st

Since we went out of town for the weekend, we did part of the shopping trip before hand and the rest afterwards.  Jon and Michael went and did the Walmart shopping Friday morning before we left and while I was finishing up the packing.  Here's our dinner meal plans for the week:

  1. Spaghetti
  2. Steaks  
  3. Hamburgers   
  4. Hotdogs   

I'm so happy that we went a whole week and didn't have to carry a meal over to the next!  Hope to keep that up.  Like I said, Jon and Michael went and did the Walmart shopping without me.  Here's the list they had and the prices for each item.

  • hot dogs  $1.98
  • hamburger buns  $1.20
  • hot dog buns  $1.18
  • laundry detergent  $9.97
  • shampoo  $1.50
  • dishwasher detergent  $2.98
  • apple juice 

These were the coupons that I gave Jon.  He said that he didn't buy the apple juice because Walmart was out.  The total that was spent at Walmart was $22.44.

Since we didn't buy the Wegmans list before leaving for the weekend, I was worried that the remainder of the $50 I was budgeting for would accidentally be spent.  Here's the list and prices for each of the item.

  • 1lb hamburger  $3.95
  • steaks  $15.19
  • onions  $0.76
  • spaghetti sauce  $1.99
  • gallon of milk  $3.59
  • OJ  $2.49

The total that we spent was $28.67.  In total we spent $51.11 which made us go over by only $1.11!  That's pretty good for one of the those meals being my birthday meal of steak!
