Seems today was grocery shopping day in blogland.
After I dropped my kids at school I headed to shoprite. Nice thing about going in the early morning is it's not too crowded yet. Plus I get home and get it put away before my day gets away from me.
It was a really big shop for me - I've been not going as often and doing quick top off trips. Those aren't good for my bottom line. We have been eating down the cupboards as much as possible.

Since my goal this month is $500 I'm nervous it can be accomplished to say the least.
