Spent $21.07 at Wegmans, where I could not resist some of the "good" chocolate bars that I had coupons for I make them last, though, so they wind up lasting longer than the regular candy.

319.88-21.07
Remaining in the budget: 298.81

I havent been here in quite a while but I finally starting keeping track again. I'm jotting it down on my planner but I'm spending a lot. I feed 4 adults and 1 11 year old. I'm hoping keeping track will help me regain control.

Will probably go over this month. I am not worried about it. I have been stocking up on stuff and we also got the beef. Which will last for months.
