After a very high week, we’re back to a relatively light spending one.  I’d prefer this level out, but overall monthly spending has been ok.

I spent $63.09 at Stop & Shop on Monday.  This would have been higher, but they were out of juice.  Dole fruit cups were on sale.  I only had a manufacturer’s coupon for two so I was hoping that the register would spit out a coupon for more – which it did!

So, I went back to Stop & Shop on Thursday to catch the end of the sale.  Still no juice, but I got a rain check.  I got three packs of fruit cups this time because that was the number on the second coupon.  I spent $21.18, including the post-Easter sale candy.


Finally, I spent $74.82 at Wegman’s on Friday.  I wanted to make sure we had enough milk to get through the weekend.  I also took the time to grab a few items that I won’t necessarily use right away, but that we usually have on hand and need restocking.

That brought me to $159.19 for the week.

You can see the transition to spring sports (only soccer is really underway right now) in the menu.
