I made daily, relatively small stops this week.

I spent $65.77 at Wegman’s on Monday.  This was primarily a trip for milk and bananas which we’ve been using in great quantity.

On Tuesday I went in to Stop & Shop for their sale items plus mushrooms (which were not on sale).  That totaled $31.34.  The snack packs were for soccer on Saturday, but that got canceled with the Nor’ Easter coming through.  The boys will not be sad as none of those items are things we ever have at home.


I spent $0.58 and $3.42 on an heirloom tomato and green beans at the farm stand on Wednesday.

Finally, I spent another $89.53 at Wegman’s on Friday, driven by the need for additional milk and bananas.

That brought my weekly total to $190.64.
