I got some freebies for using Clicklist, including soy ice cream, cheese, yogurt, and Eggos. I promised 4 pies for the preschool Thanksgiving, so I picked up frozen ones. I’m trying to get work hours in, so too busy to hours of baking!

We spent a little extra this month because I bought some food for the PTO’s staff appreciation meal at our 1st grader’s school. No big deal, we’ll make next week a little smaller.

We’ve figured out that we like using Green Bean for more “special” local foods or things we forgot to get on the weekend Kroger trip.

We’retrying a few things this week. Two of my three kids loved dipping veggies into the Vegy Vida Cheesy dip. The Scholars Inn Plain Bagels were a thumbs up from me. My family is very finicky about apple cider and the cheap stuff from Kroger does not cut it.  My husband is from northern Ohio near a lot of farms who make their own cider and maple syrup. This cider makes the cut.

You may have noticed I didn’t post this much the past month. We were within our budget for September-and even a bit below it- but I didn’t get around to posting.  We started the month with bad news, two stomach viruses,  a cold that circulated through all 5 of us, a rough start to the school year for one kiddo, and I was working as many hours as I could.

The good thing is, I always use cash when I go shopping, so even when we are just surviving, I am still sticking to my grocery budget.

It’s a new month and here we are, ready to start off on the right foot!

Dorothy Lane Market: $98.40

Yep, lots of comfort food.

Since the transition from summer to school is over,we are back to drinking juice in our Rubbermaid Reusable Juice Boxes. I bought a 6-pack when my son started 1st grade. Here we are at the start of 4th grade and they are still working great with no leaks!

Our son likes water in his juice box, but our daughter likes half water and half apple juice. I buy a ton of apple juice when I can get it for $1/each. That makes each juice box drink mere pennies each day.
