Three times this week Mr. R stopped in to pick up 1 or 2 items and came out $20 later. And yes, I'll admit to slight nagging each time.
So what did I do? I ran into Acme to pick up a prescription, bread and a couple other items we needed. Forgot my list, of course, and ended up spending $28. I justified a few purchases because I had a $10 gift card that someone at Acme was nice enough to mail me since I complained last week. But I still picked up a few impulse buys. And I forgot the paper towels.
We have needed paper towels all this week and its the one thing Mr. R and I forgot to buy every time we've been in a store.
$197 left in the February Grocery Budget.
Hopefully I can get a better handle on the menu plan and grocery list next week to prevent all these quick runs to the store.
