My December Grocery Totals

Well this month raced by without updating my spending totals and I skipped the grocery haul photos. I have several reasons or excuses for throwing the budget out the window these past few months; sick kids, holidays, and a change to a more plant based diet, etc.. Going through the receipts, I continued to shop a lot. The strain on the wallet was felt having to go to the bank more than once a week because I pay cash for most purchases. I need to rethink the budget I set going into 2020. So.... I spent $863.75 this month.

Whole Foods Market: I spent $71.95. This included for for New Year's Eve dinner and school lunches for Thursday, January 2.
