I am going out on a limb here, posting my stats, but I am declaring today and tomorrow NSDs. The menu is planned so I won't have to run out for grocery items, I am heading to the library today for recrational reading and movie watching - so no money required for movie rental.
I budgeted $175 per week however I had some cash from DH's side-job that goes into the envelopes and some gift cards for cash. My cupboards were bare upon return home from vacation.
Here is the breakdown:
(Groceries/Household cleaning/paper products/Personal care/Pet food)
TOTAL SPENT $326.80
CASH/GIFT CARDS -$145.80
SPENT FROM CHECKING $170
CASH LEFTOVER $5
Thoughts: We have full tanks of gas, so that should be lower for next week. We have several days of menu planning done for next week. Groceries should be down. Will try to increase church donation for next week. Clothing was a good deal on polo shirt for DS for $3.00 plus a pair of school shorts for him for the fall $12.00.
This is my first attempt at posting weekly.
