Last Weeks Totals & An Update

Well, after all the hospital visits and whatnot, I was running a bit behind this past week.  I am happy to say that my mother in law was released on Thursday evening and she flew back home to New Orleans this morning.  I am now houseguest free for the first time since the Thursday before Easter!

It's been a lot of fun, but I'm looking forward into getting back into my normal weekly routine tomorrow morning (even as I sat here typing this, I had a horrendous muscle pain course through my back so here's hoping all is able to get back to normal tomorrow!)

After my Aldi trip last Saturday, I did not do any more shopping last week except for one quick stop at El Rio Grande on the way from bring my MIL home from the hospital.

I couldn't pass up the $0.59/lb split chicken breasts!

I bought 7 lbs for those, 3 cucumbers, 2 1lb. bags of carrots, and 6 apples.  I spent just $8.21 on all of that!

That added with the $47.74 I had spent at Aldi makes my weekly spending total just $55.95.  We did have Popeye's the night she was admitted, and that was roughly $8, so that would bring the total to around $64 for the week, which is still well under budget.

This week I plan to be using up what I have on hand (I did make another Aldi trip yesterday...that's the next post) and cooking up those 7lbs. of chicken split breasts.
