September Success!

Weeeellll... after Monday's shopping trip being over by a "lot", I was stressing about if I had come in "under budget" on average for this month. I quickly pulled my information together to find out!!

Sept. 2: $22.24
Sept. 8: $22.41
Sept. 15: $21.99
Sept. 22: $23.89
Sept. 29: $31.51

This totals to $122.04, which averages out to $24.40/week. Whew! The 25 lbs. of sugar yesterday really put me close. I wouldn't have gotten it if I wasn't doing the wedding cake this weekend, but I needed more sugar for that, but it wasn't going to be enough to merit buying with the cake money since most of it would be for our personal use.So... I guess I did ok :) I wouldn't mind seeing a little less for an average, but hey, it's still less than $25 a week, so I'll take it!

You are doing a great job w/your budgeting! We spend the $122 in one week! I would love to have the extra $$$ instead of paying it at the store! I think you've done very well.

Way to go! I am too embarrassed to even mention what we give Wal-Mart each week in exchange for groceries, toiletries, (choke, choke) formula and disposable diapers.

Hey, don't forget Mom's great stashes of canned foods--squash, ketchup, tomato soup, etc. And, all the strawberry jam in the freezer. I use the squash in squash casserole (I have a great recipe if you want it), ketchup in the sauce for meatballs, etc., and the tomato soup in casseroles like stuffed peppers.

Wow, you did great.

Hey, I finally got to that question you asked last week. Sorry it took so stinkin' long!
