These five week months always make it hard for me to stay under budget. I thought I was doing pretty good, but obviously, I didn't do as well as I thought! However, thanks to last month's huge excess I still came out okay.
Monthly Grocery/Household Budget: $190
Total Spent: $235.58
Total Saved with Coupons/Sales: $496.38
Week 1: $42.61
Week 2: $36.38
Week 3: $60.65
Week 4: $49.83
Week 5: $46.11
Other Expenses: $156.20
- This was for 6 1/2 bu. apples that I made into applesauce (1/2 bu. was for my grandparent's) and also a bunch of ham, turkey, and Lebanon bologna that I bought at a meat sale.
-This was from a whole bunch of rebates.
Ending Monthly Balance: $308.83
Balance Carried from Jan.-Sept.: $171.56
Ending Annual Balance: $52.73
- In case you are confused, this is the amount I have left over for the year. This comes from being under budget in some previous month. So basically I am ahead by $52.73 for the year.
