Over budget. I went over my grocery budget this time. I was so hopeful but in the end, we needed more staples than I realized. I didn't go over our max budget…yet, but I did go over the amount that I had hoped to spend. However, I take comfort in that I didn't go over because I was being frivolous. We will use up everything that I bought.
Eventually, I hope to get a decent stockpile that will last until the next sales cycles. At that point, staying in budget should be a cake walk.
I did buy a double pack of roast that will easily give us 4 meals so this will help on the next round of meal planning.
