Yay for me again! I didn’t have another mid-week run this week. Although the hubster did get some ice cream during the week ($4.44). We’re starting this week with $207 spent so far on groceries. Since we budget $360/month, we have $153 left for two weeks. And the last week is actually 9 days. Since the new month (May) starts on a Wednesday, I won’t
Yay for me! I didn’t make a mid-week run to the grocery store this last week. That’s big for me! I planned well before I went to the store last weekend and stayed strong. We needed butter on Thursday, but I did without and waited for this weekend’s trip. Wish me luck this week. I didn’t buy any sugary/dessert food this week and that’s usually

This is B seeing one of his favorite animals in person!
Ka-ching Ka-ching! That’s the sound of my money slipping away from me. Is it just me or are groceries getting more expensive? I’m totally failing this month with staying on budget, so you may not want to follow my lead on this one. But I’ll still share my progress and see where I end up this month. We budgeted $320 this month. This week is
I love a new month! It’s a clean slate for the budget. As you may know we typically budget $300 for groceries. And lately have spent $320-350. I’m assuming that’s due to Beckham’s (15 mo) increase in “adult-like food”.” Ryan is FINALLY done with basketball, so I have a husband once again!
