December Groceries: Week 1

Well, we had two big budget busters this week: snacks for daycare and diapers. Snacks follow a rough schedule, but I'm never sure what they'll ask for. Sometimes I have almost everything they ask for, and other times I have nothing. This time I had a jar of applesauce, but had to buy Fritos, deli-sliced cheddar, 2 bottles of juice, and 1 box of graham crackers (I bought cinnamon ones last week). I bought everything at Aldi because I could and Aldi's Fritos are awesome (and $1.29).

1 box of Good Earth tea, bottle of Grandma's molasses ($3.45), 7 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
