I have been quiet the last couple of weeks.  But, I have a good reason. Just after the last post I was readmitted to the hospital with abdominal abscesses. Another surgery and countless bags of antibiotics later, I am back home recovering.

So, what was eaten and bought during the first two weeks of February?

First, how much money do we have for February.
28days times $12.31 per day equals $344.68.  Plus the carryover of unspent money from January, $68.02, equals a total of $412.70available in February.

It didn't take long to start shopping.  Tops had a great sale.  If a certain amount of ground beef was purchased several items were available free.  So, we bought
Ground round (part for stockpile); and we got chilli beans, cheese, taco seasoning, crushed tomatoes, tortilla chips, Italian bread; Greek yogurt; sour cream; ketchup; tea bags;

A total of $14.31 was spent leaving a balance of $398.39

A shop at Aldi was next.  We bought:
Italian sausage; Italian seasoning; bratwurst; tomatoes; mushrooms; Romaine lettuce; avocados; sweet peppers; cucumbers; pepperoni; saltines; eggs; broccoli; corn; bleu,Parmesan and mozzarella cheese; blueberries, cream;cottage cheese

A total of $41.64 was spent leaving a balance of $356.75.

And then some meals out took a chunk.  $20.75  The balance going forward was $336

Another Aldi shop saw us buying:  oatmeal; potatoes; OJ; jam; bananas; chipotles peppers

The cost was $9.34 for a balance of $326.66

A Wal-Mart shop saw the purchase of flour tortillas; olives; cilantro and a lime.

The cost:  $8.64 for a balance of  $322.02
So far $84.08 has been spent in total.
