Usually if I go over my grocery budget I feel somewhat guilty and frustrated. Not this week! It was one of those weeks that will pay off in the future with reduced grocery bills. The lion's share of some weeks' grocery money goes toward meat/cheese and this week I was able to get both those things for very very good prices.
