Well my total for the month of June is 438.87. Store savings and coupon savings was-72.50. I am happy because this is lower than usual for me. Mine is usually over 500.00. I did buy my ods groceries but that was a gift to him and I am not counting that. So I will post an amount to try for when we get the July thread going.

Moderator's note

I am just going to keep this thread going for July. As you have noticed, I've retitled it. It's not an issue for threads on FC to get big, now that we are on the new server. So I plan to do one of these per season (June, July, August for Summer)

Well then I will start for July. I have a family of 4 but one is not home much. Right now I have a huge ever growing grocery list so I will have to spend a lot for July I am sure. I include hba, cleaning products, food, otc medicines and such. I do not include eating out or the items (fishing and hunting) that dh and ds buy. So I will try for 450.00 for my total for July. Best wishes to all of you for July.

July



For July I will stick to $600.00 I have 5 people in my house. But most of the time it is just 4 of us that eat at home.

We have a 1 week camping trip scheduled for July. I include all food, paper and clean products, also all hygienge items.

I hope I can stay under budget this month.

I went shopping yesterday for the week so I blew my goal for June! LOL! But I only have 4 trips to make for July so it all evens out.

DH and Big DS are going camping with the Boy Scouts for a week this month, and I will be taking the other kids for a few days with my parents, so I am going to shave a little off the goal.

5 people (1 teen boy, 12 year old girl, 6 year old boy and 2 adults), no pets, cleaning supplies and hygiene items included, no medication/greeting cards/makeup included.

My goal this month is $500. The prices are just getting higher and higher.
