So, this month I am micro-organizing our expenditures. Here's how I'm doing it:
Total allowed $500
I am also writing down everything that I buy. I just want to see what we actually spend our money on. So I've got a notebook to write everything down with an envelope attached to tuck the receipts in.
I have been to the local Dollar Store, Aldi and Food Lion. I am nearly prepared with 2 weeks worth of groceries besides some fresh produce from the local stand, some tea and maybe a little bit more of meat.
The next big shopping trip will be around the 17th to set us up for the rest of the month of February.
This is what is left to spend:
Nonfood $24.65, food/bev. $223.61, stockup $31.48
I'll write another post on what I have bought and then another post on our menu.
