I'm sorry if all that was hard to follow. Basically I had a huge credit from the past 5 months and this month because of buying fruit and produce to freeze, I dipped into that some. However, I still have $200 surplus, for which I am thankful because I still have fruit and veggies that I want to buy to can and freeze!
Now that I'm not feeling so icky with my pregnancy I really should try to do a "live out of the pantry/freezer month". I should, but I'm not sure I have the motivation to do it! Making food is still not something I enjoy doing as much as I normally would...but maybe I can compromise and do it for 2 weeks. We'll see... :)
