I lost track toward the end but as near as I can figure I am only about $30 over for the month. Not bad....I will post about November's goal later when I get a handle on our plans for the month.

Dh got paid today so I will begin my November challenge today.

I am counting all food, hba, otc medicines and such. I am not counting eating out, hobbies for the men or clothing. Its for a family of 3 sometimes 4.

Goal-500.00
Spent to date-174.29
Store and coupon savings-20.33
Left to spend-325.71

My biggest two bargains today was getting a free bottle of cascade rinse agent and getting a turkey that had been 14.22 for 4.71 after the sale and coupon. I sure hope I can stretch the grocery money this month. With Thanksgiving coming up and ods going to be here more its going to be hard but I will try. Good luck this month to all of you.
