Well, here I thought I was over budget for the month but I must have just miscalculated! Just to be sure I double checked my math several times, but I always came up with the same amount, so I was happy that I was actually under budget by a couple of dollars even before my rebate credits.
I now have $237 of overage that I can put towards fruit and vegetables to can and freeze. I am thinking that should nearly cover the cost of the produce and fruit that I buy to preserve, but am not totally sure. So I guess I'll just keep saving away for a couple of months yet- if I can!
