Money Recap - Sunday&Monday

Yesterday I went and Sold my plasma. Money has been tight here and I could really use a little extra. The whole process took about 4 hours, because I had to go through a screening process to make sure I was eligable. Ordinarily it would only take about an hour.
Today I bought groceries with the money I made yesterday. I have our next 4 dinners planned out. This is the second week in a row I have done a big grocery trip, and I am really proud of myself. Hopefully this will help us drastically cut down on eating out.

Menu Plan
      Pigs in a blanket!! - I haven't had these since I was a kid. They were delicious and super easy to make!

      Homemade Pizza! - A favorite of Austons

      Shepards Pie! - we never go wrong with this one!

      Spaghetti! - we have this atleast once a month! I'm not a huge fan but Auston is.

Money Breakdown:


Income - $50.00
Groceries - 12.94
Eating out - 6.37

Income - $20.00
Groceries - $40.07
Gas - $10.00

I have also been continually adding money to my sealed pot!

I ma very excited for our dinners this week! And the plasma has really helped us out a lot, I've gone twice now, and it made it possible to stock our kitchen and buy a few gifts for my younger sisters.
