Yup, I will. The total I just posted is for April actually since it's out of the paycheck we use to get through April. But I'll start again in the April thread. Oops.

Shlyn, welcome to our thread! Good luck in keeping within your food budget. It is getting harder and harder. Every week I go shopping, I notice prices have gone up again.

I forgot to post my last shopping trip. I spent $102.00. I think I might get by with a very small trip this week for fresh fruit, veggies, and milk. The freezer is very full, as is the pantry.

Goal: $500.00
Last Balance: $147.00
Spent: $102.00
Balance: $45.00 (hooray!)

Kathy

I still have my receipt from last month's big trip. I'm going to compare prices on the basics.

I am new & since tomorrow is April 1 & have no intentions of going anywhere today....
I have a family of 4 & 1 dog.
I think I am pretty much set except for maybe some meats for dinner.
I think a monthly allowance of $350 for food is reasonable. I should not have to buy cleaners, shampoos, soaps but possibly paper products.

I really need to stick to a budget!
