My weekly spending 5/23 – 5/29
My grocery budget is $500 a month ($125 a week) for my family of 4. This includes food, cleaners, personal hygiene items, and sometimes a few miscellaneous items. By shopping sales, using coupons, and stockpiling when prices hit rock bottom I have saved $1,537.96 so far this year. Setting a budget really helps to control your spending. I give myself a realistic budget and stay as close to it as possible.
This week my shopping was done at Walgreen's, Big Lots, and WinCo.
Monthly Budget $500
Spent $496.41 ($3.59 under budget for the month)
I love tracking my spending; I enjoy seeing how much I save.
