Okay…time for a little confession. I was out of grocery money when I went to the store this week. I knew it before I even walked in the store.
But, I needed buns and corn for my birthday party and fruit for the little guy, so I planned to dip into our “miscellaneous” cash envelope, which we use as a small slush fund. When I got to the stores, I found so many really good deals, I ended up spending a little more than I wanted to. Thankfully, we haven’t spent much out of the miscellaneous category this month so I was able to pay for the groceries and still have a little cash left over.
I went to Walmart for groceries this week, too, because I was looking for tomatillos, cilantro and fresh jalapenos…no such luck, but I found a few great clearance items while I was there.
