OK I am going to try this. My goal is $600.00. We have 5 people in the house(3 adults and 2 teenagers). My budget includes food, paper, cleaning, health, dog and cat food. It will include the supplies for the 2 camping tirps this month. It doesn't include gas, eating out(we don't do to much) or clothing.

Walmart $84.79(camping supplies)
Yoders $13.36(camping)
Redners $83.50(weekly groceries)
coupon saves $7.55


Total spent $181.65
Left $418.35

Even though I am not participating this month I just wanted to tell everyone what a good job they are doing, especially you Jean, at this rate you will come in way under budget. I will start back with the challenge in June, I went way over what I would normally budget last month. So far this month I've spent $170.00, that's just for dh and I. Once I get home I will have to survey the cupboards and freezer and see if the kids left anything I can build on and shop from there. Dh has to go to the city on May 17 for a test so I will shop while he is doing that. Congrats everyone on doing so well with all that we have to deal with in regards to high prices.
