Went to WM last night and spent $150.00. Ouch! My freezer was basically empty, though, so I guess it wasn't too bad.

Goal for August: $500.00
Spent so far: $150.00

Went by a wholesalers today and stocked the freezer with some goodies $53-20 and teabags and a bag of lollies for tonight $4-90.

So I am now on $317-79 for the month. I think I might stay within my $500-00. We'll see!!

Okay, time for me to update. I've generally been staying out of the grocery store as much as possible, so I think I'm doing better this month, so far.

Goal for the month: under $550
Previous balance remaining: $437.01
8/11/07 Weis: $29.79
Balance remaining: $407.22

It certainly helped that my two guys (DH and DS) were gone for several days. I tried to just eat out of the fridge and pantry while they were gone.
