Well I spent another $75.44 at Kroger. I need to stay away from there. I did use my rain check to pick up 15 Oscar Meyer hams for $1.00 , that is all we eat since it stays fresh longer .Alos picked up a turkey breast for $1.19 a pound. It is not coming down around here.I did spend enough for us to get gas for 10cents less a gallon.

Goal-$550.00
Spent-$349.37
Left-$200.63

I would really like to spend only another $100.

Two stores today, Aldi's to the tune of $89.46 and Jewel for $53.11 that brings me up to $509.94 but I am done except for Italian bread for the Lasanga dinner Christmas Eve and the strata Christmas Day. So that is another $5.00 tops and possibly milk before the New Year.This included all Christmas Eve dinner and all the snacks for my sil's Christmas Day. It is a nice feeling to know I do not have to go in the store again

Spent-$509.94
Total-$550.00
Left-$40.06
