Project Food Budget: Week 9



Nothing too exciting to report this week, unless you’re into TJ’s Frosted Flakes. 2Chili is thrilled because they have been out of Frosted Flakes for weeks at Trader Joe’s. We thought they had been discontinued, but alas, this week, they were available again. While not the best nutritionally, they are generally better than Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, and make him happy, so I obliged.

You’ll notice he also has a mini chocolate bar dependency. Speaking of mini, on a little mini vacation right now, so I used this week to stock up on a few things to set us up for next week.

Goal: $75
Actual: $75.56
