Breaking the Bank

Maybe I should say breaking the budget? I have went more than $100 over this month's food/cleaning/baby/paper budget this month. I am trying to stockpile for the summer. Once I go back to work 9even part-time) time will be at a premium, especially with my babies!

I found some really good sales and hit them yesterday and today.

Here's what I got at the Piggly Wiggly:
12# ground chuck
