GROCERIES! I didn’t even want to blog this because it was so terrible! What can I say, some months are good, some are bad! I really honestly don’t know what I did differently and if I did change anything, I don’t believe I still would’ve hit budget. We’ll have to evaluate this more and make changes.
Last week I was already over budget. Adding two mid-week runs to it and I started this week at $396.12!!!! I went to Walmart for our last grocery run and spent $58.09! Bringing the grand total this month to $454.21. That is the most we have spent EVER, that I can remember! We did get a lot of meat deals this month, but even if I took away $50, it’s still WAY over budget (budget is $320). I swear the price of groceries has gone up! This amount just makes me gag! I can’t wait for a clean slate to start with.
I would love to hear how much you guys spend on groceries and if you have any tips to keep it low relative to your family.
