Project: Food Budget Week 4

It was another weird week.  I spent the weekend in Johnstown, PA, my mom’s hometown, retracing her roots.  We did the incline plane and the Johnstown Flood Museum.  And, we stayed in a great little bed and breakfast called Heritage House.  The two women who cared for us, Ginny and Maryann, were wonderful.  Maryann is a great cook, so I spent the weekend full of her delicious cooking.  Ever looking for a weekend away?  Put it on your list for a great B&B experience!

On the way home on Sunday, I made a quick stop at Trader Joe’s for pizza crust, multigrain crackers, and english muffins.  I’ve been eating the muffins and crackers, but pizza is on the list for the weekend.  I also bought two basil plants, one for me and one for a friend.  I love having fresh basil around.

And on Monday night, I broke down after a pretty intense massage and got a pizza.  Monday’s there’s a $8.99 special here in town, so for the first time in over a year I got the pizza I wanted.  It lasted into the week.  I did a little Yoga on Tuesday for the first time since last January.  And I caved today and got lunch out – mostly because I didn’t plan well this week. But the weekend is very close.

Week 3 Budget: $30
Week 3 Actual: $31.34

Week 4 Budget: $30

I fully expect to come in under next week, because there is A LOT of food in the fridge and I have a normal weekend to plan and prepare.  I might need some pieces to connect it all together, and I’m also going strawberry picking this weekend, but in general, I feel like things are really under control budget wise.  I can’t believe I’ve been working on this project for nearly a month!  I’m so happy about not only the money I’ve saved, but the positive choices and changes I’ve been making!
