Sorry this picture is so awful- you should be able to click on it to enlarge. I promise to start using a real camera next week and not my phone.
I went a little crazy this week because we needed a lot of food. I am still getting used to braces and I basically have to create a whole new menu for myself now- which means lots of non chew items. Amazing how many things I can’t eat these days. Anyhow, I received $22 in rebate checks this week and I decided to go ahead and add them back into the budget. I usually buy rebate items out of my budget and then add the rebate checks back into the budget when they arrive. Lately I haven’t needed to add them back in and we have just been depositing them into savings. But this week I went for it and man it seems like that extra $20 got us a ton of food.

*Before you think I have gone insane this milk does not expire until September and my girls go through 2 gallons on milk per week. So really 8 of these is only 2 weeks worth of milk.
