Here's my spending summary for March. I was surprised to find that I was under budget. I had felt like I was spending a lot and never got around to checking just how I was actually doing. So I was rather relieved to see that I was quite a bit under budget. I'm going to need that extra money when I start buying fruit and veggies to can and freeze!
Monthly Grocery/ Household Budget: $190
Total Spent: $173.15
Total Saved with Coupons/Sales: $554.15
Week 1: $21.99
Week 2: $25.98
Week 3: $48.87
Week 4: $29.05
Week 5: $47.26
Ending Monthly Balance: $160.17
Balance carried from Jan. & Feb.: +$72.02
Ending Annual Balance: +$101.85
- 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 months. So basically I am ahead by $101.85 for the year.
