Believe it or not, cause I can’t hardly believe it myself, I did not buy very much last week at the grocery store.
I am going to try to break down my grocery spending for the month of January (so far)
I started with a fresh slate of $75.00 on January 6th.
Total spent on groceries $66.72.
On January 13th I added another $75.00 to my left over $8.28, giving me a total of $83.28.
Total spent on groceries $29.54.
On January 20th I added another $75.00 to my left over of $53.74, giving me a total of $128.74.
Total spent on groceries $23.61.
On January 27th I added anotehr $75.00 to my left over $105.13, gving me a total of $180.13.
Gee. I hope I added all that correct. I am not a math whiz, and I did the calculations on regular old pen and paper.
I will double check all my math tomorrow. Right now, baby college girl is calling me for help with college algebra….I think she forgot I can’t add past 5’s.
Anyhow, I needed to know my budget, as I am planning a little shopping trip tomorrow to use some coupons that expire on the 3st. I will let you know how I do.
Have you set yourself on a weekly budget? I have been reading on some of the coupon sites that I look at, that they (the expert couponers) are having to increase their grocery budgets by $75.00 a month because grocery prices have gone up. Have you noticed the same thing with your budget?
