Hi friends! I didn’t die. And I didn’t forget about you. Thanks for missing me. I missed you too!
We started out the month with two funerals and company staying at our house. We loved seeing family and enjoyed catching up with everyone, so I won’t apologize about being behind on blogging.
But clearly I’m very behind.
It’s the last week of September and I’m finally going to show you my beginning-of-the-month grocery haul. And I haven’t responded to comments in ages, though I read them and they bring smiles to my face (well, except for the ocassional spam ones that somehow sneak past my robust filter– eek!).
I’m back though! I have lots of great content coming up, so stay tuned while I get into a new groove!
Since we had a houseful of guests, I made my video on-the-go instead of displaying everything on my kitchen table. It was a kind of fun change. Let me know what you think.

For those who are new, we typically spend $400 per month on groceries for our family of 7. We cook most meals from scratch and rarely eat out (which would usually come from this same budget). For an idea of the kind of things we normally eat, you can see the pictures I took of our dinners a few months ago.
Since I didn’t go to Winco this month at all, I got bread at Walmart. My kids keep begging me to bake bread again like I did when we were paying off debt, but I’ve just had too much going on lately so it’s easier to buy it.
Now that September is almost over, I’ll be doing October’s grocery shopping soon! I’m looking forward to cooler weather… soups… and all things pumpkin!
