Week 2 budget experiment and "How's it going"

So week one went great.  We didn't run out of food and had plenty of leftovers that my husband ate for work instead of buying seperate lunches!   Yaa for week one.  Now to be honest if I hadn't gotten sick we might not of had quite as much left overs but it was still plenty.  This week I spent exactly 35.90 on food I don't usually buy and didn't need.  I bought 2 packages of organic hot dogs ( I know what your thinking..I thought this was healthy eating) and  2 boxes of GF Chex cereal that I am taking camping for the kids.  My husband and I will be having tin foil dinners with yams and ground meat.  I also bought a large package of paper towles, hair gel and myself a treat because I didn't have any children with me while grocery shopping.That permits a treat of dark chocolate raisins.

 So my total bill for this week was $221.06.  Minus the $35.90 brings us to a weekly total of  $185.16.  A little bit more then last week but I am trying to buy organic everything while on this budget of $40 per person per week.
