I think it was a great week considering I saved 53%, but how much longer is this stocking up stage supposed to last? I must admit I’m not trying too hard to stay within any kind of budget. I’m just saying yes to any good deal at this point because I like variety and eating well. If anyone’s wondering, we’re slowly eating all this food and the only food that spoiled was not because I overbought something. I foolishly left bananas in a bag on top of the fridge. Oops!

There are still a few great deals left at Costco, but I’ll get more later this month. The only two things I’ll go back for tomorrow are milk (we still have drinking milk, but I want to try making crockpot yogurt) and “ultragrain” unbleached flour. I have a batch of dough for Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day sitting in the fridge and no flour to shape it with.
