Barbszy, 6 teen boys could eat your entire month's budget in one evening! Good luck with that!

I'm going grocery shopping this evening. My goal is to keep it under $100.00. I do have a lot of the basics but will have to buy a fair amount of meat. I did my menu plan for the coming week and have included two meatless dinners. Hopefully, that'll keep my total down.

Stopped at the market on the way home from school today and spent 16.78 and then at Sunoco I spent 5.88. That leaves my balance at 124.91 for the rest of the month. I think I'll make it as I have enough left except for milk and eggs, which will be bought late next week.

I managed to keep my total to $95.00 at WM last night. That brings my total to $286.00 for this month so far. I only have $114.00 left - I don't think I'm going to make it on my $400.00 goal. I'm going to have to get much more creative!

I totally lost track of my receipts. Have no idea how much we have spent since my last post. I'm going to "skip" this month and try again next month.
