I think this month will work well. I have decided to not buy any meat or frozen food until I clean out the freezer. I feel the need to reclaim my area. Sounds silly but when I was ill everyone just shoved and now it will be cleaned out.

$11-50 on fruit and veg today. Total: $153-19 which leaves $446-81. I don't think there is that much in my account!!! It has been spent on things other than groceries I think!

Spent 14,07 Euros ($19.74 US dollars) on the economy Saturday on just 3 loaves of bread, 3 gallons (well, 12 liters) of milk, some lunch meat and cheese.

That gives me $410.78 for the rest of the month.

$184.65 for groceries this week and considering that's 2 1/2 weeks since I last went, I think I've done well.
Bakery was buy 2 loaves get 1 free, 3 for $5
