July Grocery Spending Update

2012-07-27 11.35.54

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already July 30!  Practically the end of the month.  I can think of only one thing I will likely need to buy before the month ends, cause it ran out a week ago.  I need my hair “food”!   Anyway, last week’s shopping looked like this: Reams 1 whole chicken …
