I can get discouraged by how expensive groceries are right now!!!  However, we are committed to not sacrificing good food.  I don't splurge on many special treats anymore, but produce is still welcomed in abundance.  Our bill for this week's groceries for our family of 7 was under $150.  Keeping in mind we had ground beef in the freezer and our milk is from a dairy.


These were my shopping helpers this week.  And I do mean helpers!!!  We rounded our spending to $150 even by donating to the veterans outside the store.  So nice to spend time w/ these two sweeties!
