I had done ok for the past two weeks and even had a few extra dollars left over to roll into this week, but I REALLY BLEW IT this week. I had $28.04 to spend and spent $44.60!
Here are the pics of my blown up budget, but make sure to scroll to the bottom to see my plan to recover!
Family Dollar: $2.16
Freihoffers Bread Outlet: $3
Stop & Shop: $7.37
Total spent = $44.60
Total Saved = $212.41
So, since I went $16.56 over budget, my budget for next week will be $8.44!
I have $10 in Cats for Stop & Shop and $10 in Cats for Shoprite, so I really have a little more money in my budget than it initially appears.
The plan is to spend almost nothing on my stockpile unless it involves the Cats and to use the $8 to buy a little chicken breast, milk, and some veggies! Let's see how far I can stretch that money!
