For December I decided to not even make a guess at how much I would spend because I knew I would be buying extra things this month. I plan on thinking about it and trying very hard in Jan to come up with a budget that I hopefully can keep.

I don't know where else to ask this question. Does anyone know where you can print off free blank grocery lists on the Internet? I have done in past, but DH threw away my original by mistake, and I would like to make up some more. Thanks.
