I haven’t added them all up yet but my budget was $700.00 and I came in slightly over. I did some stocking up with the Easter sales. I’ll come back and post an exact amount tomorrow. I do find this helps me stay focused and really trying to beat my figures. I’ll try for $700.00 again. That is for 6 people, 5 adults and 1 12 year old. I have 3 animals but I do them from a pet store

This is a cool thread.
Wish I had gotten in on it at the beginning of April.

Maybe I can set weekly budgets til May gets here.
