Spent $62.26 on Saturday to get me through to the end of the month. Leaving me with $59.64.

Guess I'll cut the budget by another $50 for next month. That means next months budget will be $350.

DH left about 30 minutes ago for a job interview in Heidleburg (a 1:10 drive from here). If he gets that job it means another move, but it will be worth it!!!

Keeping my fingers crossed for your DH to get that job, Vicki!

I spent $94 and change at Shop Rite and the deli/produce store this week, so I am about $40 under budget for the month!

DH said that the directions were so bad that he was 45 minutes late to the interview. Also said that they didn't offer anything. Didn't even sound like they were going to either. , , and double

Anyone starting a December thread?

Used $103.17 in coupons in November and still my DH can't be bothered with them.
