My shopping for Week 2/14 - 2/20

Here is what my groceries were this week for a family of 4 with 4 large dogs and a guinea pig. We eat pretty well, our pantry is stocked. I have set our budget at $500 a month. I'm very lucky all these stores are by my house, work, or kids' school.  I can go to all of them without going out of my way.

Here's how I'm doing for February:

Monthly Budget is $500
Spent $447.66
Saved $233.89
Balance is $52.34 (I know I will go over this month, but I'm pretty stocked)
