I usually shop on Saturdays now that I am back working full time.  And I shop for the upcoming week.  This upcoming week is Vacation Bible School at our church and our children attend and both DH & I volunteer.  So, all week it is “eating out” for dinner, because there just isn’t enough time between getting home from work and when we need to be setting up for that night’s activities.  So, because I would only be shopping for lunches for the week, I took advantage of the extra weekly budget (we use a separate “eating out” fund) and stocked up on infant formula (also had a ton of formula checks that were due to expire on 6/30, so….).
