I didn’t do too much extra shopping this week, just one trip to CVS and then what we needed at the food store. I also didn’t get any pictures of my purchases. I took a break from blogging stuff this week but I’m back now and next week I promise there will be pictures.

My weekly drug store budget is $20.00 and since I still have some gift cards left over from new prescriptions I didn’t spend any of that so I was under budget by $20.00. Of course I didn’t buy all that I might have, had I had more time. That’s ok too. Next week is another week.
