Grocery Update

It's the 20th of October and we are out of our $260 grocery money. The good thing is that I think we can make it with the groceries we have in stock. We have milk, diapers, chicken, rice, veggies, fruit, and miralax. We have the essentials and I'm gonna try and MAKE IT WORK (Tim Gunn).

Here's how we kept the costs down this month with food:
-no beer
-no one-time snacks
-cheap dinners
-used tuna a lot
-frozen veggies
-target brand diapers
-pert plus shampoo/conditioner

Also, we haven't gone to Target this month so I know that's saved us $200! (That's my real weakness.)

With these changes we've made, we can now build our savings back up and be more generous with our giving. Hopefully we can stick with this!

Nice work! You've inspired me to stick to our budget too. However, our budget would include substituting a meal for beer. Good luck trying to get by with no beer in my house. Just kidding... But seriously.
