I stopped at Ultra today and spent $82.22 bringing my total up to $170.14.
I have $379.86 left & that should be enough. I hope.

Jean, sounds like you are doing good with your budget this month. I am trying to be really careful since I went so far over last month. I am at $125.39 right now and was budgeting $350.00 for the month but I'm planning to come in under since I had lots of stuff already stocked up when the month started.
