I did better than last month but still over budget. I've read some other blogs and sites to get some ideas on how to do better. Some of the ladies suggested taking only cash with you to the store and using only the amount you brought with you. I might try this approach this month. Here are my totals for the month of October.
Total OOP $262.25. This works out to be $65.56 each week for groceries (over budget $15.56).
Total OOP $30.25. This works out to be $7.57 each week for drug store related purchases.
I ended up with $1388.11 worth of product for $292.50 saving $1095.61 (78.93%). ($73.13 combined weekly OOP).
Hope you had a great month!
