December Grocery Shopping Challenge Final Total

I'm getting ready to head over to my moms.  We'll be enjoying some fun games with some friends and family, some good drinks (I bought bubble gum Vodka!), yummy food and the safety of just staying the night at my parents.

It'll be a fun night for the adults and the kids.  We made sure both girls got naps today so they could stay up and I spent 2 hours in bed reading.  I couldn't seem to take a nap.  Mr. R has to work till 11 and then will meet us at my mom's.

So I went to Aldi today to get what I needed to make cheese fondue.  It was expensive!  But I'll have lots of veggies left over.  I spent close to $25.  I think a good $15 was stuff for the fondue.  The recipe includes apple juice, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese and cornstarch and then I bought broccoli, cauliflower, apples, carrots and french rolls to dip into the cheese.  I also picked up a couple things that we needed and a few things they had that they don't normally carry.

So.... drum roll please... My total Grocery Spending for December is:


I don't think I've ever come in under budget before!!!  I don't foresee us needing anything else until payday on Friday.

Happy New Year Everyone!


  1. Good job! And Happy New Year :)
