I know I haven't posted our menu in a while, but we've had one! I don't know what I would do without sitting down and hashing out a menu each month. It would be chaos I tell ya!
I did my marathon shopping this weekend. So crazy for nearly 4 hours, but I hit every place on my list and got just about everything we needed. It's a lot of work at one time, but the up side is I rarely have to hit any stores for the rest of the month. I go to the farmer's market every Saturday for milk and produce, but that is fun compared to a regular store. It works well for us and our budget!
My sister wants me to teach her how to make it work for her family too. It should be fun teaching her my strategies for monthly planning and budgeting!
I also finished up my part of the monkey's costumes. I can't wait to get pictures up! They turned out so well!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Breakfasts: Cereal, Oatmeal, Biscuits, Muffins, Pancakes, French Toast, Waffles, Fruit
