Whew! I managed to dig myself out of my grocery budget hole at least a little bit this month! And I'm feeling good about that. Now if I can only not spend much this month, I just might be able to end the year in the black! We shall see.

This was for a number of things including a bunch of rebates and a return to Giant for some stuff that didn't ring up correctly.
