I was supposed to update last Friday, and of course, things fell by the wayside! It is what it is and I will try and update on Friday.
So, our first week went really well.
Money In: $500.00 ~ Variable expenses
$100.00 ~ Custom order payment
Money Out: $285.50 ~ Groceries/Personal Care ($300 alloted)
$105.00 ~ Gas ($120 alloted)
$13.55 ~ Entertainment ($40 alloted)
$ 120.95 ~ Other ($40 alloted)**
**Yes we went over in the "other category". But school fees were due, so we had to shell out $75 for that, and I had the custom order, so I had to buy the yarn for it. I have completed half the order but was paid for the full order.
So in total we spent $525...we brought in $600...so I safely tucked away $75.
I am not sure how our goal of cutting back on groceries is going to go. We are spending what seems like a ton at the grocery store. We are trying to have meals that are inexpensive, but those darn kids keep eating! This is proving to be a huge challenge. Hopefully we will come out on top. Thankfully, we replenish our jars on Thursday.
