Groceries This Week:

Every week I share with you exactly what I am buying and spending to make this week’s meals. Keep in mind not everything I purchase is needed to make these dinners specifically. I am including everything I have purchased for the week so that you can get a realistic look at what it looks like for me to feed my family every week. 

You will notice every week that I save a lot of money by using fetch rewards. If you haven’t tried fetch rewards and are looking for EASY ways to earn cash back from your everyday purchases (like gas, restaurants, grocery and even your amazon purchases) I would highly suggest giving it a try.
