Original goal: under $550.00

Balance: $266.43
7/18/07 Weis: $17.18
New balance: $249.25

It feels like I'm spending less this month, but time will tell. My local Weis store is running a promotion and my receipt tells me I'm $27 away from getting a one-time 15% discount. I'll need to spend that $27 on or before Saturday, and then I can redeem the discount with a big shop next week.

I am way over the top. Since I cannot always shop for my self when I send someone else I tend to stock up so The $ Store-$23.00 and then the Italian store. Dh bought imported pepers as well as the olive oil so $46.00. So even milk will put me over the top. Next month should be better I hope

Went to the grocery store last night for DH's shrimp and a few good BOGOs from the new sale flyer. (They didn't have everything I wanted, but I guess that's livin' in a small town. . .)

Goal this month: under $554.00
Previous balance: $249.25
7/20/07: $59.07
Current balance: $190.18

It looks like I may come in right around or just under my goal this month. I guess that's not too bad.

Went to the grocery store and Walmart on 7/23/07. Used my Weis points to get my 15% discount, so I had a nice bit of savings there:

Original goal: less than $554.00
Previous remaining balance: $190.18
Weis: $49.46
Walmart: $29.16
Balance still remaining: $111.56
