Another Grocery Update
I have discovered I am not very good at this. All these other folks I read about do such a great job of staying in the budget they set for groceries. Went to the produce store this morning for bananas, apples, spinach, lettuce, red potatoes, a tomato, a onion, and butter for 15.20. This brings the money I have left to spend for two weeks and two days to 139.39. I know we will go over. I am thinking maybe 450.00 a month is more realistic for our family. Maybe I will get better at it as time goes on. If I didn't mention it before this budget will include dog and cat food, paper products (which mainly consists of toilet paper and paper towels). Everything else will be budgeted elsewhere: make up, chicken food and supplies, laundry supplies, soap, etc. I will keep plugging away at it.
