***milestone: become a debt free family
A big way we try to tangibly save extra money is through couponing, menu planning, and shopping discount stores like aldi, to lower our monthly grocery budget.
here's the totals for may's grocery trips:
harris teeter super doubles coupons $28.23
bloom $25.65 $-10.00/25.00 coupon
bloom $46.01 $-10.00/25.00 coupon
harris teeter $38.21 triple coupons (would've been $87.61)
* fyi: it includes household items like cleaning supplies but does not include personal toiletries like makeup or contact solution.
this is again almost $100.00 less than our budgeted allotment of $350.00.
