I have saved $1,594.27 so far this year!

My weekly spending 5/30 –6/6

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 $1,594.27 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, Yoke's and WinCo.

Monthly Budget $500 ($125 weekly)
Spent $133.34 (-$3.34 over my weekly budget of $125)
Saved $51.31 (this week)

I love tracking my spending; I enjoy seeing how much I save.
