I have only spent about 200 so far so way under but that is good since we are really hurting finicially this month. I did make Debora cheesy meatloaf for our Room In the Inn fellows and they loved it.

Uh, Roberta, I count those as Charitable Donations!

Meg, that was sweet of you to welcome a family with a meal. A little hospitality goes a long way!

Kay, I'll bet DeBora will be glad you liked the meatloaf recipe.

Chuckles I did start a new budget catagory in 2007 called "fundraisers" after seeing how much money we spent on the girls school, church and Girl Scout sales.

I have spent $185.27 so far this month, I budgeted $350 because I went so far over my $300 projection last month. I will grocery shop again tomorrow night and that may be it for the rest of the month so I may be closer to my $300 this month, that would be a pleasant surprise. We have gone out to eat a few times this month though and I don't put that in my grocery budget so that may be why I'm doing better than I expected, so maybe I'm really not, LOL.
