Wow Barb, you are doing excellent this month. I am right at my projected budget $400.00 now and 10 days of this month to go. I know of one $4 item dh will need so I will end up going over by $3 if I don't buy anything other than that. I can't see anything I will need but you never know. One of these months I WILL come in under budget LOL.
