  • Here's the latest grocery spends:

    Yesterday DH spent 23.35 & I had my monthly internet shop this evening that totalled 88.47.

    Budget for August: 250.00
    Spent so far: 127.80
    Leaves: 122.20

    I went and forgot to buy potatoes though, so I will be popping to the local shop for those tomorrow!

    I also mentioned to DH that I haven't bought any treat foods such as crisps and sweets and he was OK about it. I will bake some cakes instead!
  • Yesterday I went to Save-a-lot, Food city, Walmart and Magic Mart.

    Total to date-206.91
    Store savings and coupons-18.76

    I was overcharged on some chicken so I should be getting a refund when I take it back. I should be getting around 4 dollars back.
  • This is my downfall right here, running to the store everyday for something! Today I went to pick up sun dried tomatoes and green onions for a dinner I decided to make from some leftover sausage. So it wasn't on my list for this week. ALSO, there was a recipe on the back of the white cake box that I made the Pink Lemonade Layer Cake from, so I bought a few ingredients to make that too

    Previous budget balance $475.16

    less $12.48

    Balance of budget $462.68
