I haven't been here in a while either and forgot to post my most recent purchases (7/12/07):

Prior balance: $384.44
Weis: $36.68
Walmart: $23.73
Balance available: $324.03

Wooee! Doing pretty well so far this month. It probably helped the grocery budget that we had out-of-town family visiting the area this weekend and ate out WAAAY too much, but we did have doggy bag leftovers yesterday for lunch and dinner, so not totally extravagant.

Went to Aldi's yesterday so I had to add $83.00 to my total so now I'm up to $399.01
Since my total is $550. I still have $150. if needed. I'm going to try and keep it under $500.

I spent $6.00 for 3 loaves of bread, grapes and a gallon of milk ($3.75-ouch!). That brings my total so far this month to $146.50. I still have $353.50 to go. I think I'm going to make my goal this month - maybe even come in under! I have been very careful about using up everything I buy. In fact, I have to go grocery shopping tonight. My refrigerator is EMPTY and so is one of my pantry shelves. My freezer was looking pretty empty until I bought the three loaves of bread and put two of them in the freezer.
