This is how I feel this month, just walking the treadmill and can't get off. I have spent a lot this month but we are out of a lot of basics. I have already spent more than I budgeted this month. I did dind som incrediable sales which will save me in the long run. I've decided to live off the freezer and pantry for a while. I will try to only buy basics for the next 6 weeks to put my self on track.

Goal- $550.00
Spent-So Far-$585.05

This week I spent $138.

Remaining for the month: $103.50.

Hee hee, I could "cheat" and not go shopping until Thursday next week . That would make my total look really good! But I already have $106 in the store gift cards that I buy through the school. I get $100 a week of those for my main shopping.
