Weekly Shopping Trip

Weekly Shopping Trip 3/9/09

So this week is going to be an extra busy week. I am having two different functions in my house on Monday. What was I thinking (oh right, only have to super clean the house once). Sassy is having a play date on Monday morning with a bunch of our friends and then Monday night I am having some moms from the EcoMom group, I help organize over to learn about the hazards that are in typical household cleaners. So this is why there are some extras in the trip this week... like a box of Cheerybrook Farms Cookie Mix, this is a great cookie mix that is completely vegan since Sassy is allergic to milk and one of Sassy's friends is allergic to eggs so this insures there is something for everyone to eat at our play date... then with the moms coming over we are going to have cheese, crackers and veggies and dip. So these items added about 20 to the budget this week. I honestly don't know how Gayle keeps so good in budget every week. I guess practice makes perfect.
