I have been keeping track on an index card but forgot to post here....my July budget is $450. Out of that I have spent a little over half, with just over 2 weeks to go in the month I have $210.49 remaining. I did not "carry over" any of my saved money from June but just started with $450 and want to keep it at or near that total.

Since I did a freezer inventory this week when I defrosted my deep freezer, I am able to plan the meals for the rest of the month based on what I have here.
