My mom wanted to spend some time with the girls as she will be going away for the weekend. She goes in kiddo withdrawal if she doesn't see them at least a couple times a week. Mr. Ripples was off tonight so my mom offered to watch the girls so we could go out.
We went to a local Mexican restaurant and met up with a friend. We had a good dinner and with a coupon only spent $17.00 and that included 2 meals, a pop and tip!
Then since I needed to go grocery shopping anyways this evening, Mr. Ripples joined me. Before we had kids we always did the grocery shopping together. Nowadays, I usually go and leave him home with the kids.
We spent $147.35 out of my $440 August grocery budget. I have almost everything I need to make dinners for the next 2 weeks. Right now we have lots of produce. I will have to stop at Acme this weekend for more produce and a couple things they have on sale, that shouldn't be more than $30.
