$24-15 today on milk and a few bits pieces of grocery. $341-94 so far this month. Still trying to stay under $500-00, but no great stress if we go a bit over!

Went to WM yesterday and managed to spend $150.00 again. I knew I shouldn't have let DD1 come with me. Still, I have spent $300.00 so far this month. I still have $200.00 left. I'm going to do my best to make it.

Oh my I need to hang out with you all more. I NEED to budget, but cannot seem to get it together. I forget to take stuff out of the freezer in time, and running around with the kids I end up buying more than I should. I am going to try and do much better and read up on your posts to help me.
Thanks guys

I spent $18.00 at the Farmer's Market but we have lots of veggies. Kroger got $60.85, I did cheat and pick up 4 strip steaks(on sale) for our Celebration of the new school year Monday night. Cass starts school Tuesday so I'll be back on the lunch thread
We went to Ultra for a few theings about $5000 so I am up to $302.02. That did not include the $20.00 I'm sending a neice & nephew for meat for family reunions so make it $342.05.I still think I will make it.
