Week 1 --- $114.42 ($14.42 over what I hoped ... ohh well!)

So, I started off making my grocery list today thinking that it would be nice to spend less than $100/week on groceries.  I did have a few downfalls (ie Todd and Easton went shopping with me) but all-in-all I'm not to upset with my outcome ... at least I have a starting place and hopefully I can make it up next week.
